Anyway, about a month ago she randomly told me that she could not do a Cinderella show because she did not have a ribbon dress.
Me: "A ribbon dress?"
Lily: "NO - a rippin' dress"
Me: "I have no idea what a rippin' dress is."
Lily: "The dress Cinderella wore when the stepsisters ripped it."
Me: "You mean the dress the mice fixed up for her?!"
Lily: "Yes, I need it to do a Cinderella show and I can't do the show without the dress."
Me: "You have got to be kidding me. They don't sell that dress so you'll have to make one."
Lily: "Do you know how to sew?"
Lily: "Nana knows how to sew. She can make my dress."
Me: "Well, I want nothing to do with this. Talk to your father."
And so it began. My biggest fear was that Karan would put all this time, effort, and money into this dress and then Lily would find the littlest thing wrong with it and she wouldn't wear it. For weeks I heard about "the rippin' dress." Was Nana working on it now? Would she have to wait until she turned five to get it? When would she turn five again? Could she have another princess party? Who would she invite to the party? When was Nana going to mail the rippin' dress?
This went on and on and on and on and on and on and then one day.........
This dress is absolutely perfect. I know Karan is talented but this dress is exactly like the dress in the movie. Lily lives in it now. She brings it with her whenever I drop her off at my mother's and she brings it back home with her. Karan, not only have you created a beautiful dress but you have saved me from one more endless conversation about princesses. Now I only have to be involved in 79 other endless princess conversations.
Jamison also received some gifts from Nana and Poppa for Valentine's Day.
A Valentine's Day cookie.
And his newest interest - Elmo. More on that "interest" in another post. He received an Elmo train that he likes to roll across the table and watch as it crashes to the floor.
