Hmmm... the great pants debate!

Most of you know or at least seen that in all the pictures of my daughter she is usually in a DRESS.  I have been preparing her to wear pants more since she will be going to 4k in September.  She is very excited but has always been a dress wearing girl.  I took her shopping and we finally agreed on some shirts and pants.  YAY!!!

We get home and I told her to give daddy a fashion show of the new outfits.  I was excited and misty eyed because she is growing up so quickly.

Then I panic a little bit... since she always wears dresses or leggings she struggled with her zipper and button.  OH NO!!!   I have visions of her at the bathroom at school frustrated and not able to get her pants down and wets her pants.  I know foolish right?!  

Looks like this mom is going to be practicing for the next week straight to ensure she can do it!!  Also, she is so skinny she needs a belt... this is going to be so tricky!

One of the reasons I always liked long tops and stretchy pants for my girl when she was little! Good luck.

I can only every buy those pants with the elastic hidden in the waist, my kids are too skinny for normal pants :P.
I had to transition to sometimes wearing pants for my dress wearer, it's exciting and a little sad to see her out of a dress sometimes!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her
