Again, I recognize that not all Mommies have the clothing obsession that I do...but in my defense, when you, your daughter, and daughter-to-be all share the same small closet, it makes things very interesting. I'm sure that Vann feels like he is drowning in a sea of shoes, accessories, jeans, and coordinating tights, and I feel for him, really I do. But, in a little over two months time he'll be the only man in a house of (wait for it) five women, so hey, he'd better get used to it.
I look at it this way: I only have a few years to enjoy dressing my girls the way I want to...and then they have their whole lives to figure it out for themselves. Charlie is already getting opinions about things and she's only two, so I'm going to enjoy this as long as I can. All of that to say, Vann and I were laughing about how nice it will be to have our own sinks, closets, etc. in a new house...no more sharing bathroom time and no more stacking my clothes on the dining room table. I can shut the door of my closet and NO ONE has to see it but me.
There are still some of Charlie's things in my closet, and we are still sharing a dresser, but this armoire has given me back most of the space I had lost. Thank GOODNESS for generous neighbors like our dear Jill and Carl!!
Oh, words do not describe how much I love this little Matilda Jane dress. The designer of Matilda Jane started out selling her wares at art fairs. I wasn't able to drive to Plymouth, Michigan for the MJ art fair this summer but lucked into someone's extra dress from the big online sale. It's called the "Party Knot" and I just adore it!!
