Back in May, Auntie’s school put on a production of Beauty and the Beast.
One Saturday, I needed an emergency place for Mercedes to hang out …
and she got to hang out at practice with Auntie.
Gran’ma and Gran’pa took her to a special preview night.
The little girls were encouraged to dress up …
They all recieved a light – up rose …
there was cupcakes and punch!
She even got to sit by Auntie at the director’s table for a bit.
Needless to say, my princess was in HEAVEN!!
You will see in future blog posts this yellow dress.
Mercedes’ cousins gave her their old dress up clothes.
Being a fourth grader and an eighth grader, they didn’t use them.
I went out and got a clothes rack for them,
because her princess dresses were TAKING OVER! 🙂
Mercedes’ has worn them EVERYWHERE!
Because I’m the kind of mom who lets her.
There are rules, however …
you must wear real clothes underneath …
(no showing off your boobies .. giggle, giggle).
And you may not wear them to school or church.
THANK YOU Katie and Maddie for being such great cousins!!
