"Rather to go to bed supperless than rise in debt"
- Benjamin Franklin
Early one morning we woke up and headed out to the Thrift Store first thing! We found some really cute things that day. (I already showed you the red dress for the Little Lady) One was a little denim dress with its tags still on it. The dress was around $3.49 but since they had discount day I got it for less than $2.00. I debated about the dress because it was a size 3 and the Little Miss isn't supposed to be in that size until next year! I talked myself into getting it though since it was a denim dress and my size 3 girl container only has a couple of dresses in it. (huh!! hum!!) So, as usual I got home threw everything in the wash and then put the little dress on my dresser to be put in a small stash of other size 3 clothes for later.
The next morning was a little crazy with Beloved coming home. We had to pick him up at the airport at 2 in the morning. Everyone was very tired from being up so late, so Beloved helped get the Little Miss dress the next morning. He saw the dress on the dresser and he put it on her.
Yes, it is obvious that we hadn't had time to do a home-front debrief after he had come home from War because Beloved didn't know that the dress isn't suppose to fit her yet! She came up to me with her little pink jewelry and this little dress and my heart was in topsy - turvy all day! My heart didn't know if it should sink because she is growing up to fast, (she turns 2 years old this week) or soar because she looks perfectly delicious in this size 3 dress!
The dress has all these sweet little details all over it!
