Z has become a bit of a chatterbox lately. The only problem is that I’m the only one fluent in “Z-speak”. While a lot of what she says is can be understood by those in our family, it’s mostly gibberish to those around us. However there are certain words that she picks up and can say as clear as day. Her favorite recent word is “dress” and she uses it every single day.
Every morning when it’s time to get dressed, she quickly suggests her favorite option, “dress.” Every single time. Forget the adorable colored skinnies or the cute little polka dot shorts, she wants a dress, dress, dress. I kept trying to figure out why she was so obsessed with dresses, besides the fact that she’s a little princess. Then it dawned on me. Every day I tell my girls, “time to get dressed!” Of course! This whole time she’s been taking my words quite literally.
Even after realizing this, I’ve still indulged her in her love of dresses and all things girly. She’s entered into the dress up phase and loves putting on princess dresses and tutus and crowns. This Minnie Mouse tutu dress is just perfect for her and she reaches for it every chance she gets. Her love of dresses and dress up tutus combine in this adorable polka dotted pink piece. The soft cotton allows her to move around freely and dance around in her dress.
One day she’ll realize that getting dressed won’t necessarily have to involve dresses. I just hope it doesn’t happen any time soon.
