Wallace loves playing dress up at his friends’ houses. At home, he’s not much interested in it but there was one big difference: dresses.
Why didn’t we have some already? Mostly because I have a hard time justifying $30 on chintsy, cheaply made costumes that support the Disney empire. I haven’t gotten around to making some despite looking up patterns and Wallace has a ton of toys we already have to downsize. So, I did what all parents do and asked a friend if she had any hand me downs.
We stopped by there today for other reasons and, after a little bit of emotions, my friends’ nearly 4 year old figured out which too small dresses she was ready to part with. Wallace was so excited and clutched them to him while I carried him to the car.
He got one on as soon as we got home and only took it off in order to pick a different one at work. I need to do a little mending on a few of them but it is so very worth my child being happy and using his imagination. I also think he would like a few skirts, so hopefully I can make one soon.
