The Glamorous Life..


I found this t-shirt yesterday from Paperlili while searching for Esther's perfect birthday outfit.
Unfortunately, they are sold-out of her size. It is so her. I am stressing about her birthday outfit because A. she actually requires some special outfit and B. her instructions are "a big 5 in pink bling on her belly with a weawy weawy twiwly skiwt." I am having a rough time of it finding this set.

How did she get so glamorous?

Eloise and I and safe creatures. We care too much about what people think, our clothing is conservative. I hear too much from Esther "Mom, why do you wear black everyday?"

Our clothing matches and we don't accessorize. We wear the same, comfortable shoes every day. We don't like to stand out, be noticed or my goodness have someone talk about us. My face is turning red just thinking about it.

Esther likes to be the life of the party. The loudest, the silliest and the most fashionably dressed.

Nothing matches, hat on backwards, a ponytail on the top of her head, layers of beaded necklaces.

And in as much as I am looking forward to Esther going to school all day next year...I am already lonely for our lunchtime party everyday together. I will miss her if even for the pure entertainment value. I like to use my kids that way.

I always try to set a proper and glamorous plate for her - and make it pretty and colorful just like her. Or I stop buy a few trays of sushi for us to share. Esther loves her food as colorful as she is. Tan is overrated.

Esther colors my world, my soul and my heart and I worry that my days will be quite unglamorous next year without her company each day.

p.s. ..and because Esther is the biggest American Idol fan I know - I had to share this clip from last night. I love this man and totally agree with him, and have been singing it all.day.long.

eloise and esther remind me a lot of kelley and bethany. kelley is the wise and sensible one. bethany is the wild one, totally glamorous and dramatic. she dances to her own rhythm and i never want that to change. (even if she's hard to handle sometimes). i have been negotiating (so far unsuccessfully) for just one more baby. if this ever happens, i will be expecting an astrid, huh? =)

p.s. they had the shirt in b's size! yay! =)

perhaps you can get the smallest closest size and shrink it down?

"Pants on the ground..." was the first thing out of Joes mouth this morning... What a hoot... and a catchy one at that...

As for the glam... I seem to remember a flashy period in your Madonna/ Boy George days...
Glam turns into class... as we age :)

oh my. the pants on the ground was too funny. You might talk me into American Idol at this rate...

Eloise is sooooooooo invited to Mary's Fancy Nancy Birthday party. Wish she could come.

Esther is a girl after my own heart.Many, many years ago I wanted a felt swirly skirt sooooo much. For Christmas my grandma, an excellent seamstress, made me one, aqua with many bows. How I loved that skirt and still see it vividly to this day.!
The restaurant "Starlight Express" in NYC has twirly skirts for sale and all the waitresses wear them and sing. When Esther comes East this is the place to take her. HA!
Love that girl.
