School starts tomorrow!
One of the things we do is go back to school shopping. You guys know I love buying clothes for Natalie. (Don't worry, Tommy doesn't go naked. It's just, boy stuff isn't as fun.)
Gymboree has had a lot of cute things.
In fact, this is what Natalie will be wearing for her first day of second grade.
"Natalie, can you please cooperate?"
"People want to see a smiling face."
Sometimes taking photos of Natalie is difficult. In the past, I could run into the house and get her to laugh because apparently when I injure myself, it's funny.
But she's getting older. And she says that I'm not funny anymore. (!)
Sometimes I can get her to laugh by making farting sounds. Or asking her if she has to fart.
But lately, when I do this, she's all:
"You are NOT a funny Mommy."
Want to know how I get her to cooperate these days?
By getting her Daddy to ask her to please smile for the camera.
She kisses him on the cheek and is all, "Okay, Daddy."
(These are not real glasses. They are fake ones. Also Gymboree.)
"This is just so HARD!"
"How about we change outfits?"
"Tom? Could you please come out here?"
She's getting big. *Sniffles* And she refuses to have her hair cut. She calls her hair "princess hair."
And despite what she says, she still finds farts funny.
"I'm done with ALL of this."
"Okay. Let's go inside."
"Wait! I was JOKING at you."
Same leggings from the previous outfit. Different top.
Wondering what kind of trouble she can get into later.
She does not yawn like a lady. She'd never fit into Downton Abbey.
Oops! Headband was too big and kept slipping down.
Natalie is all ready for second grade:
"I'm being like Stephanie on Full House! At the beginning of the show she gives a thumbs up. Me too!"
Do you like back to school shopping?
