I am waiting for Star to post.... - Janice love the dress story and wow 20 years later.... I also love the picture of her paddling - too funny seeing the prone male.... and the Amazon taking him home. My grand daughter has always had her own sense of fashion so her mother has always let her go with that sense of style - of course the mother is a jeans and tee shirt person so having a daughter who has a strong sense of what she likes likely intimidates mommy. Emily is pint size which was a blessing when at age 5 she wanted a new wardrobe with clothes like the big girls had in grade 6... my DIL could not find a uniform for Emily at major stores and had to scour the bargain basement stores for size 4 or 3X kids had choice Jumper style tunic or skirt and white polo or slacks and white polo... they chose skirt and slacks and they had those inner draw string elastic waist pulled up small enough to fit her waist they made her bum look like she was wearing a diaper. Thankfully none of the big girl styles came in size 4.... gave mom breathing room for her to change her mind.
They went on holidays a few years ago to NC I think to the beach and she tried surf board and insisted that she wanted her bedroom changed to beach theme when she got home... including the surfboard she convinced her daddy to buy for her - she has had him wrapped around her finger for years what a push over he is. Grandson is more laid back and much easier happy go lucky guy who lives for hockey winter hockey summer hockey on the street...
