Fashion Trends For a 5 Year Old, Part 2

Last night David said, "Just think, in two weeks we could either have a new baby or you could be even more uncomfortable than you already are!"  Aren't those the most romantic words you've ever heard?

Anyway, the main point of this post is to discuss Daphne's impeccable fashion taste.  We've made it 5 1/2 years of her not knowing she could choose colors for her braces.  I've flipped through their little book of color choices...and they aren't pretty.  No solid colors, but lots of butterflies, skulls, multi-colored swirls, and American flags.  The designers are definitely not being paid enough.

For some reason, when we were up getting fitted for new shoes a couple weeks ago, Daph asked about getting pink shoes.  So Sabrina told her about the book of designs from which she could choose colors for her new braces.  Yay! (Sarcastically speaking.)  There aren't any 'good' choices, but we tried to steer her toward some that would be as least offensive to the eyes as possible.  But no matter our prodding, she saw the Amercan flag design and she was sold.

She's so pleased with them.  Yesterday was her first day with them and she wanted to wear her American flag dress as well.  With lace socks, because they match her lace shorts, because they match her lace headband.  Obviously. 

I don't know what to say, except Stars and Stripes Forever!

And God Bless 'Merica.

She did look super cool and patriotic. And those two things are always good. I'm waiting for the day she declares she needs the skull ones, though. Won't that just be the best day of your life!
