Chloe received this great costume as a birthday present. I love it. It doesn’t take up any space, and it doesn’t require me to dig deep into the very small reserve of patience that I have for arts & crafts projects.
This is what Chloe was wearing when I returned home this evening. She was sprawled out on the couch with a big mermaid smile on her face.
My only quibble with the costume is that she can’t really wear it for Halloween unless we happen to be in Disney World (or some other tropical venue), which is about as likely to happen as our winning the lottery, which is impossible because we never buy tickets.
I often wonder how much longer she’ll be willing to dress up in these funny costumes. She turns 7 tomorrow. One more year, maybe two? At least we’ll have them for Sophie. A nice consolation, because I LOVE coming home from work to such cuteness and innocence and happiness.
