Sophie Sassy Pants and Fabric Tuesday...

SOPHIE SASSY PANTS AND THE SAILOR DRESS

I have told you a bit about my youngest daughter Sophie here and here.

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???



On to FABRIC TUESDAY, what have you been sewing???

Sophie sounds very much like my 'little' girl. Who's 9 now. Still sassy - but at least a little more aware of social graces.

I remember wearing sailor dresses when I was little! I had a favorite red and white one, a yellow and white one and my sister and the navy blue and white! Oh that brought back memories!

Once upon a time, many decades ago... when I was just a kid, my brother & I were fed up with our younger sister "dobbing (telling) on us" all the time so she quickly gained a nickname. The impact was greater than we realised when she got separated from Mum at the local shopping centre one day & told the staff at Centre Management that her name was Kerry Blabbermouth - ROFL - they could hardly announce that over the PA system......

Oh my goodness. so funny. this could have been my daughter, with the exception that she wouldnt wear dresses. it was always pants and tops. a bit of a tom boy. but otherswise personality similar. she is now a strong willed and independent, hard worker, fantastic young lady who now will wear a dress if the occasion warrents it. have fun with her growing up. it will come in handy for her in her later years.
