On Saturday, Sloane and I had a few hours shopping together and it was so fun. It also made me realize that I really don’t do one-on-one often enough with Knox & Sloane. I want to get better at making a point to spend time with each of them separately.
Our mission was to find her a ballerina costume because that’s what she wants to be for Halloween 🙂
I had seen an outfit, randomly, when I was in Whole Foods last week, so that was our first stop. She loved the outfit. I explained she could do “real” ballet clothes or a costume and she opted for a costume. It was love at first sight with this costume 😉
As soon as we walked in, the florist gave her a rose. Quite fitting since for Sloane Rose 🙂 She loves the mini shopping cart and she loves flowers so she wanted to look at them all.
I basically just let her walk up and down the aisles. She was having so much fun looking at things. She asked me for a few things and, of course, I said yes 🙂 Had I had more room on my phone, I would have taken video because her little walk when pushing that cart was priceless.
We took my mom’s car because Brent and Knox were in mine. Brent uses his car for business so he doesn’t typically leave carseats in it. When we got in the car, she pulled her costume out and just looked and smiled. It was sweet. We then grabbed lunch and ran one or two more places.
She also decided she wanted me to be a ballerina with her, so naturally I said yes. Did I mention we had a Halloween party Saturday (that) night? All four of us went. Brent was looking for a costume as well, and we already had Knox’s. Anyways, I had no idea where to get “grown up” ballet attire. So, I figured I’d try the girls section at Walmart. Thankfully, they had one and it worked. I opted for black with black tights. Sloane had a pink tutu that I could get over my hips. It was rather tight, but I made it work, too. I actually wore two because both of them were really thin ones. Basically I feel like I looked ridiculous, but it was worth it 😉
OH, and I don’t think I’ve posted since Sloane got glasses! She’s not wearing them full-time at this point, but I’ll do a post on that soon.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
