Angel is going to be a flower girl in Princess’s upcoming June wedding. She has been so excited about wearing a “pretty dress” and last week we got to go to the bridal store and do a fitting for her dress.
We had told her that morning when she woke up that it was the day she got to go get her pretty dress. She of course doesn’t have a good concept of time yet and so was pretty frustrated with mommy and daddy that we couldn’t go right then. We made it through breakfast and then eventually morning naps and then it was time.
The dress they had in the store was a 2T and it fit almost perfect. It was a little too big which is perfect since she’ll probably grow a little before June. She loved twirling and was rather distraught when it was time to take it off. Again, she couldn’t quite understand what it meant that we had to order it and that she couldn’t take that exact pretty dress home.
When we actually left the store she had a major meltdown because she wanted to take her pretty dress home. She kept crying, “My pretty dress, my pretty dress.” After a few minutes of crying she stopped, looked at me and said, “I miss Holly (Princess).”
I know sweetie. Don’t we all.
