“Will you play dress-up with me?”
A question that would make me cringe. Not wanting to say no but not wanting to say yes to my little girl’s request. I loved the game as a kid but it’s just not something I look forward to anymore. So I’d make an excuse to pass on this favorite pastime of hers.
Months have gone by and though the amount of Disney Princess dress is hanging in her closet has gone up, the number of daily outfit changes and requests for me to play with has gone down.
I can sense my baby is ever so slowly growing up and out of this phase.
Part of me thought I would welcome these days with open arms but instead I feel the opposite. I’m clenching on for dear life, not ready for this to end.
“Will you play dress-up with me?” My daughter asked as she ooo’d and ahh’d over some dresses in my closet.
Chores, work, and closet organization–It can wait.
I turned to her and said yes.
She smiled. I smiled. And together we became queens.
