Goddess Talks Weddings and Mothering

Dress up
This weekend I did the clothes transition. You know put Fall and Winter away and take out Spring and Summer. Goddess decided to put on a dress that was in her bin. We get a lot of hand-me-downs so I don't remember whose dress this was but it has been waiting in a bin marked 4T-5T.

She walked around all day in this dress and communion veil that has been sitting in her dress up bin.  She pretended to walk down the aisle and called this her "bride dress" to her father's dismay. He kept telling her that she was "breaking his heart" and that she was "way to young" to think about marriage. He told her that she should have a career first. 
While I totally agree with him, I find it hysterical that girls instinctively get into this whole wedding thing even with parents who don't talk about it. She has never been to a wedding. We don't know anyone who is getting married right now and I have never showed her how to walk down an aisle yet she does it in my living room holding a flower in her hands and her eyes closed. Not sure what the whole closed eyes is but she also does this when she holds "potential snacks" up to me.  She walks over, closes her eyes, puts her chin to her chest and holds out her hand with the snack she wants. I asked her once why and she said, "I don't want to see you say no."

Today, I showed her the picture I was about to put on the blog talking about her "bride dress" and she said, "I am sorry that you lost your mommy when you were young. Maybe when I grow up, I can be your mommy."  Awww...too cute. I gave her a hug and told her that I would like that. I guess she is talking about the days that she is changing my Depends and feeding me soup. Who knows?!

  3. That is so precious. What a special daughter you have!

  4. You'll never be in Depends or having someone feed you soup.
    You'll be a healthy strong 102 year old walking and doing everything for yourself.
    Goddess is so cute, but I agree with your hubby. First a career, then marriage.

    She looks so pretty in that dress. Kids have biggest imagination. I agree when it comes to girls, they love that whole wedding theme. My daughter just did her Communion and that was the first thing she said. "Is like I am getting married, I look like you when you were married"

  6. What an amazing little girl, for her to have that inside her and say that to you, she is a gem.
    Here's to hoping she doesn't grow up too quick. :-)

  7. cute!

    My kids said they won't change my diaper when I'm old - that's the thanks I get for all the sh*t I put up with- get it? :-}

    Have a great evening!

  8. As I have said before, she is the MOST special little girl I have ever come to know. She has a heart as big as the universe and I know where she got it... from her mommy!
