SOPHIE SASSY PANTS AND THE SAILOR DRESS
She is my little firecracker pip squeak. She says funny things (not on purpose, don't you love 4 and 5 year olds for that reason?) Like "It's not Yucky Charms, it's Yummy Charms!"
Also, one day I bought her a new dress (She loves dresses more than anything in the whole world). She was so excited and to thank me and compliment me she said "Thank you Mommy! You are not stupid anymore!"
She gives me more trouble and noise in the 10 minutes she is home from Kindergarden, than her little 3 year old brother Wes gives me the whole time she is gone.
Sophie has been known to go up to perfect stranger girls at the park and say "My shoes are cuter than yours." She changes clothes at least 5 times a day too.
However, she can be sweet too. We were playing skipbo as a family and I was out first and made a frown. She was so sad for me that she "gave" me her last win. She also always goes nuts with me about new fabric, just the response that I need that the older girls won't give me. She loves to snuggle me too.
She treats her little brother Wes like he is still a newborn infant who needs everything done for him. Always baby talking him and getting things for him. (I won't tell you how she treats her older sisters.)
And although she has plenty hand me down dresses from her 3 older sisters, I can't help buying her more here and there. She LOVES new (or used) dresses and shoes so much! She hugs them and hops up and down. Then she will put them on and pose like a princess while batting her eyelashes (how could you resist that?)
This was a sailor dress her mother in law made for her by my request (I have an awesome Mother-in-Law) She had to combine a few patterns to get the dress, but I love how it turned out. Sophie wore it for the first day of school. (and many other days)
Do you have any silly stories of a 4 or 5 year old in your life???
