Our girls have some of the best imaginations. So much so sometimes that I get confused if they are talking to me or not. “Mommy?” “Yes, dear.” “No, not really ‘mommy’, mommy, pretend mommy.” Right.

“Go upstairs and pick out a dress you want to wear and change into it” I said. “A dress? Where are we going? Why do I need a dress?” She asked with even more questions coming. She tried on 4 different dresses before deciding on one I pulled out of the clean laundry. “This one […]
