Dress Dare Day 1

The ladies at Defining Beauty Blog have challenged us to what is becoming an annual Dress Dare. Now, this is particularly easy for me since my daughters wear dresses on a pretty regular basis for two reasons.

1) They grow so fast we'd be buying shorts or pants every month. No really, I know every parent complains about how fast their kids grow, but ours is crazy. And they don't get any bigger in the waist. Dell, being a young woman, quickly spits out some crazy curves. (No kidding, if her bra size was only a bit larger she'd have the same measurements as Barbie. We're looking into convents now.) As for Sparrow, she just grows like a bean shoot, always taller, no wider. So really, pants aren't practical at all.

2) They like them. No really. I got the story that they weren't allowed to wear them in the foster home. Now I take that with a grain of salt. It could be that someone was trying to wear a particularly bad skirt or was being inappropriate in one and they had to say no. Or it could have been completely made up to get what we want. I don't know. But there's fewer things that make them happier than getting to spend 10 bucks on new skirts and dresses at Goodwill.

As for me, I'm kind of riding the fence. But there's one thing I do know. FarmerGeek really likes it when I wear skirts. And for him I would do pretty much anything.

This is a very interesting topic, I have a 2 year old, and find that she grows longer than wider, so I am always putting her in skirts when she out grows her pants... thanks for the post, great picture also

I have a 10 year old and she's a weed. Love the dress idea, now if I can get it to fly with her, I'm in business!
