I heart stripes. They're so nice and clean. They can be used to make other fun shapes (Chevron, anyone?!). They're just so darn stripey and wonderful.
That's why I just ordered some stellar striped knit fabric from fabric.com. I'm pretty pumped for it to get here. But while I'm anxiously awaiting its arrival, I thought I'd use this mustard and white striped fabric that I got on sale some time ago.
Me-- Stand up, Boo!
Riley-- Okay. (Puts hands over face)
Me-- Alright, put your hands down. Uh... can you put your hand on your hip?
Riley-- Huh. (Pause) This is what you do when you're mad.
Clearly, it was time to change the subject and pull out a book.
Oh, okay... we'll sass it up a little more.
Me-- Smile, Riley-girl!
Riley-- The sun's in my eyes!
Me-- Okay... that'll do.
And on another note, here's what I put my 2.5-year-old today. Should I be embarrassed? It was just too cute and, sure, it's probably more fitting for a baby, but the pintucks and embroidery... and collar?! And those little legs! I couldn't help myself. Am I ensuring her a lifetime of therapy? :)
