Forshadowing

Blair picks out her clothes.

She tries to pick out mine. But she always wants “mama wear that red shirt,” as she pulls one of my several red t-shirts out of my drawer.

She holds random objects up to her clothes and looks at me with her eyes wide and her mouth-wide-open-because-this-is-so-exciting smile. Why? Because they “match.” (And they do! She’s great with colors.)

She can tell me who gave her just about every single outfit and pair of pajamas she owns. “Aunt Mo got you that… Gigi got you that… Grandmom got you that….”

I think this is just a little forshadowing of the TROUBLE we are in.

So sweet! Hopefully she will let her little cousin borrow some of her wonderful clothes!

I guess God knew what He was doing when he DIDN'T give me a girl....I'd be broke from buying so many cute outfits! Of course, my son actually likes clothes...LOVES to shop!

Just happened over from BlogHer and I couldn't resist making a comment about red-

My mom reminded me that when I was young, I couldn't wear ANYTHING red because it "hurt."

Aren't kids funny? Thankfully, I've outgrown that aversion to red.
