We went from this
a year ago to
THIS? Please? WTF!!
My mother took Sophie to apparently her favorite place in southern California, the MALL. She is really excited about going to Disneyland, but she was REALLY excited about going to the mall with Grandma. God help me. When this picture was emailed to me, I wanted to know if the attitude came with the outfit or was sold separately. And furthermore, where in this picture is MY DAUGHTER? You know, the one who wears whatever I order from the Hanna Andersson catalog for her?
We spoke on the phone briefly (she is very busy down there). Sophie wants to wear this on the first day of school. I pointed out that she is going to FOURTH GRADE, not a rock concert. She needs an OUTFIT, not a costume. We're working toward a compromise of the gloves possibly staying at home.
It's just the beginning, isn't it?
