fancy dress up day
Yes there is life outside of what's going on with Baby Cousin, Aunt Jen and Uncle Micah. Although I will admin our whole family has been laser focused on our newest family member. It's been challenging at times to "be there" as much as I would like for Jen, Micah and Logan while still maintaining a sense of consistency and stability for Roan. I will admit, her bedtime has slipped quite a bit this last week. I think we have that turned around now and back on track. Life as usual marches right on along for her.
This Friday will be her school class' Valentine's Day party. She has already picked out the Toy Story themed valentines she wants to give out. We just need to address them to all her little buddies. All week long at school they're having fun themed dress-up days. Today was "Fancy" dress up day. So Roan wore some pink sparkle leggings, some new shoes, lacy ruffle socks, a pink and purple sparkle tutu, purple fairy wings, and her hair done up all special. She informed us she was NOT a fairy, she was NOT a fairy princess, she was a PRINCESS. Here are a couple more.
I think most everyone that knows me knows I'm not a "girly girl." I have an allergic reaction to pink, as you likely well know. I've encouraged Roan not to feel constrained by gender barriers. But the simple fact of the matter is, homegirl feels FABULOUS in a tutu. And who can argue with that. When you see that glow on her face, her happiness is contageous. I think even if she were a boy and she felt that great in a tutu I wouldn't stand in her... uh his... way!
