A week and a half ago, it was 75 degrees here. SPRING, people! The garden stores didn’t know what to do with themselves. I even went looking for roses. But I found out they won’t be in until March.
So, I did the next best thing: I went shopping for Spring Swimmy Clothes! I went to four stores and came home with the MOST adorable skirts, dresses and all-around cute “Spring Is Here, Bitches!” outfits.
And today? It is pouring rain and by Sunday the high will be 50.
It is now as if all these cute clothes are lying around taunting me. The Swimmy is in the middle of (yet another) growth spurt and I was hoping that Spring had arrived early and she could, oh, start wearing some clothes that actually FIT her.
And now I’m on a mad search for a photographer to take a special 5 year old portrait. I even found two lovely dresses on my spree that would work for the kind of picture I’m envisioning. Why a mad search you say? Well, it appears The Swimmy may have her first loose tooth and I don’t want her to have some gaping hole in the front of her mouth for this picture.
(And, yes, it’s a little early, but she got all her teeth really early and apparently the “overachieving gene” is kicking in all over the place.)
Good timing, it is not always my thing.
