Spring Has Sprung

After all the deluge of previous days, today is a gorgeous gift of sunshine. How fitting for the first day of Spring!

Now it feels like time for Easter, which you may have heard, is the earliest it will ever be in our lifetimes. I know I don't usually feel "Easter-y" right after St. Patrick's Day, but this year we don't have much of a choice.

Thankfully, now that the sun is shining I feel a little more enthusiastic about getting the girls some frippery and finery for Sunday. So tomorrow we'll go dress shopping.

This is not as simple as it sounds. Little girls' clothes are almost non-existent these days. Unless you want your little princesses dressed like the street walkers of old. Which we don't, in case you were wondering.

Seriously, whose ideas was it to put heels on shoes for three year olds? And while I think my girls tummies are as cute as they come (they are!) we will not be sharing that view with the general population. If we can get Sweet Pea to stop pulling up her dresses and shirts, that is. She's quite taken with her new skill. But we're working on that.

I know some of you better-homemakers-than-I would just whip up three darling matching dresses on your state of the art sewing machines. Well, my skills don't extend that far yet, and alas, they probably never will. Hence the dress and shoes shopping.

Spring is really here!

Funny. I remember someone who used to have Sweet Pea's little habit when she was about 1 year old also. As the saying goes, "Like mother, like daughter!" Hmm.
