5 and sassy

My oldest daughter turned 5 last week. I think it is a requirement of 5 year old girls to have some sort of sassy edge to them. Of course, she isn't always sassy. Like the night a few days before her birthday when she cried because she didn't want to get older. 

But then there are days like this. Days when I'm trying to get a decent picture and this is the best I can get.

Wow. How old is she? 13? 

She is a girly girl. I'm not sure where she got it. I'm pretty sure nobody would ever say I'm a girly girl. Okay, I do wear the occasional pink sweater or shirt, but the point is that she is an individual. This is the birthday shirt she insisted on. The one I had in my shop wasn't "pretty enough" for her tastes. Then there are the matching pink pants with the pink ruffle down the side. I have to say that they were actually painful to make because they are so far from my style. But, she loves them so they are a success. They are definitely girly and pink!

    She is one adorable five-year-old, and what a lucky girl to have a mom who can sew up masterpieces that cater to her girly whims =)

    I believe that she got her girlie girl tendencies from her dad. You know how he likes those romantic comedies. I bet he whispered to her “Tell mom to make the shirt pinker!” Yay, happy birthday to her!

    The pants with the ruffle are really cute. You went through stages of being a girly girl, but they were far and few between. Will probably never see you put pink sponge curlers in your girls hair though.

    I love her sassy pose! It seems to me that my girls always often choose a favorite outfit that makes me cringe. Why is that?
