Dear So and So....This One's For LaLa

Dear LaLa,

I understand that what you are wearing used to be a dress, but it shrank in the wash and is now so short that the only way you can wear it is as a shirt. I don't care if you are going to wear tights under it! If you bend over the bottom of the "dress" comes halfway up your bum and there is no way on earth I am letting you out of the house like that! So, go put on a pair of jeans under it and then you may wear it. Sorry, I know you are anti-jeans but it is just too damn bad.

Love, The Woman You Call Mum Who Won't Let You Out of the House Looking Like A Stripper

Dear LaLa,

I don't know what your obsession with playing in the bathroom sink is about but you need to stop it. I have little bits of wet toilet paper stuck everywhere like spitballs and it is really ticking me off. Quit.

Love, That Woman You Call Mum Who is Constantly Yelling at You to Get Out of the Bathroom

Dear LaLa,

I am so proud of you! Well done on the class award for Maths. You are so smart!

Love, Mom

Dear LaLa,

I would like to get out of the house on time this morning so please turn off the Wii and put your shoes on like I have told you 50 million times.

Love, Mom

Dear Readers,

If you have a Dear So and that you would like to link up, please do.

Weekend Safety Briefing: Have Fun. Don't do anything I wouldn't do.

Love, Kat

I have just experienced the asking to put shoes on for 50 million times I feel your pain!

I can dress my child like a nun but she still gyrates and does weird things whenever she sees a pole to grab. Like why sit in a bouncy if you can embarrass your mother by dancing around the outside of it? And she's only 10 months old. I'm very afraid. So see how well you're doing?

I feel your pain!!!
I laughed out loud over the shrunken top. I can just see that!! Over the weekend I saw a grown woman wearing a top like that with tights and every time she bent over you could see her white underwear. It was scary!!!
Good luck

Big M's dresses are like that because she has just shot up (not because I shrunk them...I hope...) and we now have to buy her 3-4 stuff. Already. She's not three until february, so it makes me sad :(

Kerry said...

HAHA! I can't wait to meet LaLa!
She and Bailey will get on like a house on fire.. or maybe like to strippers in a pod?????

How about a cute pair of leggings to go with the dress/shirt?

Aunt Juicebox said...

Wait til they have to put on makeup and straighten their hair just so they can go with you to the gas station, where they aren't even getting out of the car.
