Christmas princess

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

I took Reid to Loblaws to get her photo taken on Sunday. We had “danced” with her Christmas dress which has bells in the hem that jingle when it twirls a few times but Reid hadn’t actually put it on. So, there we were in the women’s bathroom, with me saying a little prayer that the dress would fit. Reid was standing on the baby changing table that faces the mirror. As soon as she saw the dress on her, her face lit up and she smiled as if to say, “I *am* a Christmas princess.”. It was magical. Reid had refused to wear both her tights and ruby slippers and so when she asked to walk, I reminded her that she had no shoes. She didn’t miss a beat and replied, “Boots, Mama.”. There she was walking though the grocery store in her Christmas dress and blue and red rubber boots attracting lots of smiles. As for me, I was just glad that she hadn’t wanted to wear her *pink* princess boots. After the night of much-broken sleep, I don’t know if I could have handled the clashing colours ;+)
