The Pink Tutu

For the longest time, Little T has been wanting a “ballerina dress” as she calls it.  On Christmas Eve thanks to my lovely sister, she got what she wanted.

We allowed her to open one present on the night before Christmas and she chose this one.   As seen on the photo above, she was a happy little ballerina and even wanted to wear it to bed.  I said no.  But told her she could wear it as soon as she wakes up the next day.

And here she is opening some presents.  She loves Spongebob, can you guess from the look on her face?

And here she is eating her breakfast, was just so relieved she didn’t spill any chocolate sauce on it!

She also asked for a hoover.  We got this little cleaning trolley instead, it has a small hoover, a little broom, a mop and all the other stuff one needs for cleaning.  Who says you can’t wear a pink tutu to clean?  Not even Cinderella, only little T 🙂

And who says Doctors can’t be ballerinas too?  They definitely can in little T’s world!

And be an artist too!

And here she is resting her weary ballerina feet from all that twirling.

When she opened this one, she actually said “He remembered!”  This was the present she wrote to him about on this post.

I have a feeling she’ll be wearing this again and again and again in the days to come.  Thank goodness she hasn’t asked to wear it yet to walk her dog!

Are you ready for the New Year?

We are!

Bring it on.

    Oh, this is so sweet! There can be no doubt that that gift is a success!

    • Yes, it is. I’ve actually hand-washed it already! I have a feeling this is going to be washed so many, many, many times 🙂

    • Thanks Pol! A little ballerina who refuses to go to dance class and prefers her rugby lessons. Hahaha.

    • Thanks! A little ballerina who refuses to go to ballet class 🙂 Not really bothered though 😉

    Oh wow what a fantastic post Dean – T is just adorable in her tutu. I just love how she’s worn it so much already, your sister must be thrilled and you’ve got so many great photos. Thank you so much for sharing with #whatsthestory. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas too 🙂

    • Thanks Charly. Yes, my sister nailed it again. Last year’s present (a portable castle) was a hit too! 🙂 Don’t you just love sisters? 🙂 Yes, we had a lovely Christmas too! Have a lovely New Year! 🙂

  3. Kate @ Did That Just Happen?

    Well now that’s just as precious as it can be! I know that she’ll wear that at least twice a week for months to come – and it’s even better that she just loves the outfit but doesn’t really want to be a ballerina! But I can’t get over how adorable she looks!

    • Thanks Kate! Yes, she prefers rugby over dancing! Hahaha. She’s girl and all, but I’m happy to say that she also loves “boy stuff” (if there’s really such a thing) like rugby, trains and cars 🙂

    I’m not surprised she likes her ballerina outfit she looks too adorable in it! And I agree with her that doctors can wear tutus too!

    Lovely pics. Little Miss got fairy wings, wand and a tutu as well, and she’s had them on nearly every day since Chrissy. Even wore them to a children’s farmyard and was trying to do ‘magic’ on the goats! All the best for 2014.

    • Aww. That’s so cute. Yes, my little T also wore her fairy wings with her tutu. But couldn’t play with her wand, it broke ages ago 🙁

    T is the coolest girl ever. I just love little her. Her spunk, her spirit. She loves what she loves, we should all learn from her. xo
