I was planning on starting another blog to document my year of dresses. It wasn't going to be anything fancy or in depth. It was really just going to be a year in pictures of my creative attempts at wearing dresses for (at least) 365 consecutive days. Of course in the move, not many pictures were taken (I think I got one in the last six days!), so I may have to make it a year and a week if I'm actually going to do a year in pictures (Paul suggests that snapping one picture every day would be way to much work!). I have reserved a blog name... so it looks like the Year in Pictures might actually happen. I have little doubt I can stick to a Year of Dresses, we'll have to see how the Picture side of it plays out though.
Sadie has surprised me the most about the whole wearing dresses only thing. She only has a couple of dresses that really fit her at the moment and a closet full of things she's outgrown. Going into summer she was a size a 2 or a 3 (depending on the brand). Now she's a 4 sometimes, but mostly a 5. We'd gone out and gotten her a small number of warm 4's and 5's for winter since she'd outgrown almost everything in her closet, but this past week she's refused to have anything to do with them. If I try to put her in pants (without a dress on first) she cries. Hysterically.
As I was standing in the kitchen yesterday morning she walked by and stopped to pet my skirt while saying "pretty dress." That same morning her first words of the morning were "big dress" as she pointed to the closet she and her sister share (Maggie has a ridiculous number of hand me down dresses from Sadie and Sadie keeps trying to squeeze into 12 monthers). Tonight as we read a bedtime story about wishes, I read a part that asked what her wish was, and she was quick to tell me "Big Dress!" before dissolving into a panic as she noted that she was wearing pants and a shirt (very cute sock monkey pajamas!). She than jumped out of bed and ran to the closet in a frenzy and pulled down her new snowman dress pajamas. When I pointed out that I wear pajama pants to bed and suggested that she wear the other pajamas tomorrow we nearly had tears. She is now tucked into bed in her snowman dress.
Apparently Sadie may insist on joining me in my Year of Dresses (not that I'm holding her to it!). Anyone else given it any thought?
