SPENDING....

I had to laugh the other day at something that was said to me by another momma. She was showing me all the new clothes bought for the her daughter's "winter wardrobe". These were cute classy little outfits, I tell you. When I asked what she was doing for her "winter wardrobe" she just laughed and said you are looking at it. In true momma form, our daughters will be dressed like royalty and we will remain in our "normal" clothes.

I joke that my Tate will be dressed like some rich kid and I will be in rags. I am sure that when viewed by others unknowing, they will assume that I am the nanny for a rich Asian family with a drop gorgeous little girl. I can only imagine their surprise when Tate calls me Momma. When Tate calls me "MOMMA"!!!! I just had to repeat this for the joy it brings me to write this. Feels so good to read, too! With the clothes issues in mind, I will relay this bit of a purchase. I have been drooling over this dress now for a few weeks, ever since I received the Hanna Andersson catalog in the mail.

I tried to buy it in a size 5, but unfortunately it was sold out. So this now is my first purchase of a larger size.... a size 3. I also tried to buy the tights (sold out). Plans are to buy the clogs when Tate is actually here and at the age for this dress and clogs. I can only imagine how adorable Tate will be with the raven black hair and this bright colored dress.

As for my "winter wardrobe".... it is non-existent.

Heh. That is so true. Although I myself am not a clothes horse, so my winter wardrobe is a bit lacking already. I try to stay as far away from the Hannah Anderson catalog as humanly possible. Too much cuteness and not enough money!

I love the bright colors.. and the tights, too cute!!! I have a feeling we will all be in the same boat with beautifully dressed little girls, and us in 10 year old rags!! LOL!!

I love Hanna Andersson!! And that dress is just too cute. Tate will look adorable.

I couldn't agree more with the "daughter looking cute, and the momma looking outdated" statement. Here, here!!

Yep, Jadyn already has far more clothes than I do.

I have been eyeing that dress too. Kinda been hoping the price will go down some more. I waited on some Hanna Anderson pants and got them for $10. Probably won't happen a second time. Your daughter will look good in it!

What words of truth you speak... lol your little princess must have new clothes and shoes and bows and hats.... While you Mama will show your style through your daughter. lol
The dress is too cute Mama! Can't wait to see pictures of Tate modeling her extensive wardrobe.
God's Speed

what a cute little dress! You're wise to buy bigger. Hmmm...maybe that's an excuse to start shopping. Great idea friend!

Tate will look adorable in her fancy clothes and clogs.

It is soooo much more fun to buy for my girls than to buy for myself. And much easier to find something that fits!

Donna said...

What a great dress...Tate will look adorable in it!

Kimber said...

UGH>>>I tried to buy these too! Sold out of Kate's size in the tights (which are essential!).
