Dilemmas of a Mommy

I saw a ladybug costume in Martha Stewart Living last year and have thought since then that I would make one for Sophia for this year. Well it's getting awfully close and who am I kidding? Haven't taken up that craft yet.--- Making things. Especially things that involve fabric of any kind, even if it is just tying or gluing.... or whatever it is. So I started my search, fell in love with lots of ladybugs and bumblebees (oh yeah, I figured Mila would match her with a yellow tutu as a b.bee), and then I saw this gorgeous petti-skirt:



And thought... I really want that for photos, and this website has them for a little less money than most, maybe she could be like a ....mermaid?


And then there was this... a fairy for the second year in a row? But it's so cute--- and can you really ever go wrong with a fairy??
There were lots more. Enough to take up FAR too much time today while Sophia was at preschool. I'll spare you the EXTENT of the dilemma. But really--- there are SOOOO many cute things you can do with a tutu (or petti). I think I'm officially a mommy-of-girlies now. Because I officially want to own EVERY tutu and I want lots of excuses to dress them up and really.... I mean really... is there any rule that says they can't just wear tutus instead of (---insert word for staple clothing to cover your little ones bum here) every day???
I am obsessed with the poofs.

It's a must. Even if it's just for photography's sake!

I've been wanting to purchase something like this for a loooonnnggg time but have never taken the time to look it up. Thanks Lillie for doing the homework. I love, love, love that white one. The blue green is another one I love and probably will last longest at my house. I couldn't get on the website - the link didn't work. will you send it to me? My little one is turning 2 on Friday and reality is setting in that my chance is almost gone for these types of things. Sad. I better get on it. Thanks for the reminder.

You don't have to be a girlie-mom to like tutus. I really want every tutu too, only I don't have a single excuse to get one. Boohoo. Life is so unfair! Enjoy the fluff on my behalf, will ya?

I wish I wish I wish for lots of fun costumes. I was JUST thinking about this yesterday. I wish for vintage furniture and costumes. It's simple, really.

all four of my girls are going to be ladybugs because I have the costumes and I'm like you I DON'T SEW> It's going to be a stretch to get the older girls to fit into theirs.

Those adorable costumes make my mouth wateer. There is nothing like having little girls at Halloween!

gotta luv the tutus, for sure. Here's a dilemma for you: do I go with my gut and want one of these for my pink one on halloween, or do I give into the wishes of her brother and make her Bob the Builder's assistant Wendy instead? I fear if SHE isn't wendy, brandon really will have to. :)

again i say cute cute! I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to have a halloween dress with a lot of POOF spurting out the bottom...can't have enough POOF.

Sooooooooooooooooo jealous!! Those are the cutest things ever, I for sure have tutu & poof envy! Nothing but superheros in my house this year for halloween. Let me clarify-Superheros who are constantly trying to battle, see who's the strongest, fastest & boss of the other superheros.
