Dress Up

Typically, Sara Beth does not play with her dress up clothes, but since my parents were in town, she wanted to show off her whole play wardrobe. Though you cant see it, she is wearing a pink tutu skirt under her blue dress with the purple butterfly wings.

At around the age of three, I decided it would be fun to put on all my pants at the same time. I came down stairs and showed it off to my mom. Sara Beth decided to do something similar with all the hair clips in her closet, though she did need some of Heather's help to get them all in. This was in addition to the wings and multiple layers of clothes.

By the end of the box of hair clips, Heather was having a hard time finding space on Sara Beth's head for all of them. Sara Beth kept insisting that all the clips go in her hair. This is about half way through the box.

And here we have the final product. Sara Beth helpfully pulled them all out of her hair about 5 minutes later and put them back in her hair clip box.

As the weather cools, Heather begins to drink hot tea more often. Sara Beth excitedly requests to share. We keep having to remind her to "ask nicely" and use the word please. After a while, Sara Beth remembers to add the word to her request once or twice to each sentence. She will ask "Can I please have some tea please?" We do feel like we are making progress when, after Heather got all the tangles out of her hair, Sara Beth stood up, turned around, gave Heather a hug and said "Thank you for brushing my hair." And then she didn't even ask for any tea or candy!
