Dear Holly: You Finally Got Your Elsa Dress!

3 years, 3 months.

Dear Holly,

I guess the question is, how did it take this long for you to get your very own Elsa dress?

Mommy actually got you one last Christmas, but it fit really weird.

But thanks to Target, this past weekend we found one for only $20.

Obviously, you are very proud!

You not only have a ball coming up at your preschool where all the girls will be wearing fancy dresses, but Halloween is also coming up in a few months.

But even aside from that, in the meantime, you get to wear it around the our house… though you have to take it off before dinner each night.

Love,

Daddy

Dear Holly: You Appreciate New Clothes the Way Your Brother Loves New Toys

2 years, 8 months.

LoDear Holly,

Your brother doesn’t have the ability to ever be excited about receiving clothes as a gift.

But it’s a completely different story with you.

Last weekend, Mommy presented you with the dress that was meant to be one to wear to church on Christmas Sunday; but we ended up not going that day.

So you got to debut your Christmas dress a few Sundays late. And you were so happy, and so proud, to be wearing it.

To you, a dress or new outfit is a toy. It registers the same in your brain.

Your Christmas dress happened to be one that Mommy found brand-new (and very cheap!) at a consignment store.

But it still had the tags on it, so it was completely new to you.

Look at you in your new dress. You are such a precious little girl!

Love,

Daddy
