"Well Belle didn't have a Mommy to teach her about Modesty."

I am so lucky! Just look at these handsome boys! I'm always trying to sneak in a few pictures on Sunday, the one day of the week that the children look less like orphans and I find the time to put on clean clothes. This week I'm trying to break Ky out of her princess craze and make her wear "clothes" rather than "Princess dresses" disguised as ragges and do her hair even if were just staying home. It's been a full year now, of tattern and torn dresses and wild woman hair. It's time.

Below is Kyanne emerging from the corner for about the 4th time that day for dressing immodest. We've explained the principals of modesty (as best we can to a 4 year old) and she just counters with, "But Sleeping Beauty wears her dress like this, and so does Belle, and Giselle". I've told her that "they didn't have Mommies to teach them about modesty" but she continues to "sneak" around the house with her dresses off the shoulders anyhow.

I love that line: "They didn't have Mommies to teach them about modesty". I'm going to remember that one. I'm sure I'll need to use it sometime. Love you Steph!

That girl cracks me up!
I see you have a new set of stuff on your mantel. Can you ever just leave stuff alone! Looks cute though. But my favorite mirror was on the mantel, where is it now?

that is so funny. I have a niece who would turn her underwear into thong, she was 3 or 4. And her mom would have to put 2 pairs on her. It is so funny how they see things and try to do it themselves.
