Fashion Challenge Friday

Bet you're saying "doesn't this kid ever change her clothes?" Why "yes, in fact, she does.....look closer!" This little dress became this week's obsession ( I got the other one in the wash finally).
This was Dahlia's after school selection this week and she ran to change into it everyday after school. Note the addition of the pink hair clip - had to tie in the pink somewhere! (And TM - the panda is for you!)
Dahlia learnt how to skip this week. Last Saturday she couldn't even do one but she worked on it and worked on it and finally was able do one, then two and three and so on. Within 2 days she could double skip, cantor skip (I just made up that term as I don't know how else to describe it - ya know - one leg and then the other) and some other concoction. I know all the various types of 'skips' because each one was announced with "hey Mom - watch this!" and I did.......EVERY ONE OF THEM! (I am quite impressed though as I don't think I could skip til at least 7 yrs old.)
Below is the reason my life is considerably easier. Can you say 'school uniform'? I LOVE IT! It's actually more of a dress code which makes dressing in the morning soooooo easy.

Ummm......she does wear shoes......they're just by the front door. Check out the artwork. that would be Dahlia and her BF (Angel) spinning a skip rope and guess who's jumping in the middle? Ummm....yup....that would be me! (Only in her dreams and her artwork :-)

And finally, what would a week be without the requisite fairy princess dress-up?

Pop on over to the Salsa site for more kiddies fashion fun.
Wishing you all a wonderful Mother's Day (sprinkled with pixie dust, of course!)

That is really a very cute uniform! And of course I always love the pink princess attire!

Wow look at her go with that rope! Rylee has just learned this too, although she has a ways to go yet. I love the school uniform - that would make life much easier!!!

I love the princess fairy photos... The kiddos really love dressing up and they should they're so adorable when they do!

Love the fairy princess photos (of course)! And congrats on the skipping! Miss B had to learn to skip for her Chinese dance class (not even 5 yet) and it was hilarious to have her watch me demonstrate!

Dahlia is adorable!

Thanks for the comments on my blog. Yes, I did have to hose her off and then I put her in the large plastic sink we have in the garage and finish the job. Bleh! But fun.

By the way, I agree with you. I LOVE school uniforms! They mask all income levels, it's less expensive for parents, less hassles for parents, studies have proved that with uniforms, discipline problems go down and grades go up. Additionally, kids feel part of a community instead of competing with each other for who dresses the best.

School uniforms rock!

We are big proponents for school uniforms, too! And, by the way, we are loving the many black-and-white ensembles... especially when she's holding the panda. (The Tongginator owns that same panda because she has great taste.)

Great! The hat and the panda are great accessories!
