New Dress

I'm going through a phase right now where I've decided to only wear dresses. This naturally involves some initial expenditure and a lot of dress shopping, but I've got a list of good, practical reasons that dresses are better and have been making my case to Mr. Ashley (who likes the dresses, just not the cost).

I got a cute new dress to wear to my birthday celebration and was finishing my make up when Big Kid approached the bathroom door and gasped.

"What?" I asked, applying mascara.

"Oh my...I can't even believe it."

"What?"

"Your dress! Mom, you look so beautiful dat it makes me feel like I'm gonna cry!"

I lowered the mascara wand to look at him and laugh at his tendency for drama and HE HAD REAL TEARS IN HIS EYES. That he was quickly wiping away with the back of his hand while giving me a sheepish grin.

I've never, ever felt prettier in my whole life.

Ever.

Love it. Baby Girl did that one day when I was shopping and trying on clothes. She said, "Mom, you look fab.U.less." I bought it of course.

Awww... such a sweet boy you're raising! He knows to buy jewelry and gives great compliments. :)

Aw, that is so sweet.

I wanted to make a crack about how he can rock out his pimp costume by throwing out those kind of compliments... but that is just too adorable. Has he asked you to marry him yet? *sigh* little boys are so cute.

dresses are the BEST, no matching, just put it on and grab shoes and a bag..

Too sweet. I think we need to see this dress.

I think this qualifies as "true love"...nothing for Big Kid to gain or lose by saying what he said...just his honest heart-felt thoughts...lucky you!

He's so adorable.
Even if he wants to be a pimp.

I LOVE it when my little boy says things like that. He once saw me in a dress and with great awe said, "Mommy, you're a princess!" I promptly adjusted my will to reflect his good deed.
