This is where I must eat my words...sort of...


So, a few days ago, my forever friend C, sent me this photo (hers included the head, but for her privacy, I cut it off) of her SON who had been terribly abused by his sisters, as you can see, and used as a dress up doll. I responded to said picture by announcing that I was going to come and take the poor baby to come and live at my house where the boys out-number the girls, 4-2 and he wouldn't be subjected to such torture.

Then, a few days ago at my Mother-in-Law's birthday dinner, my little David came down the stairs, proud as can be, looking like THIS! Now, in my defense, David put the hat on himself so there was no torture involved. AND a pink hat with heart shaped leopard print is not nearly as bad as a gold lam`e skirt with plastic jewels! But still...it just goes to prove the old saying, that if you criticize the actions of someone else's kids, yours will turn on you around and do the exact same thing!

My two girls loved dressing their little brother up in frilly clothes, jewelry, and painting his nails (both toe and finger)...he loved the attention! But Daddy felt a little weird about it, so they finally stopped doing it...except for the toes...he just wore shoes a lot!!

LOL, okay, that is MY little man and i really would have let you show his entire photo. To reveal how bad things have gotten over here, DH and Big Brother actually thought it was FUNNY! But that's what living in a house with seven females will do to a guy over time... Love Ya Mel!! Your FF, C

Oh, how cute! My son is an only child at the moment, but every time we go into Barnes & Noble, he likes to go to the children's section to where the rack of children's backpacks are and he ALWAYS picks out the pink Disney princess backpack and asks me to help him put it on (he's 2). Then he proudly struts around the store with it on until it's time to go. :)
