Beautiful Dresses

Have you ever had one of those dresses that just made you feel special? I have, I remember clearly several dresses, 'specially one that came with a bonnet and had strawberries all over it. I loved it! I must have been about 5 years old. Well Soph has recently fallen in love with a dress in similar fashion. I picked up a couple of summer dresses last week for her and she begged me one morning to put her in one. She pranced around the house twirling all morning with the largest grin on her face. Just seeing her so genuinely happy made me feel so pleased for her.

Later in the day we chose to go to the park and picnic for lunch. With it being Spring break, there were alot of other mothers that had the same idea. After eating I watched the girls play. Bella went about her business, as she usually does, and in no time flat found a new friend. Soph carefully climbed the ladders and slides and as she did this, would stop anyone in her path - she would grab the sides of her skirt, lift it out, almost in curtsy form, and say very politely - "do you like my pretty dress?" or "look at my pretty dress!". Some of the children were very obliging, others, 'specially the boys, not so much - in fact, they would look at her as if she had two heads and walk away - at which point, she felt it necessary to follow them - yelling as loud as she could with a scowl on her face - "DO YOU LIKE MY DRESS? COME ON!" I wish I had it on video - - - Soph is definitely a spirit to be reckoned with - God bless the precious soul that decides to partner up with her in marriage!!! May the force be with him!!!
