So, now we begin the drama of deciding what she will be. To most nine year old girls, they want to be their favorite character from Monster High or maybe this will be their last chance to be a Disney Princess. My daughter? She always has to push the limits of good taste and Mommy's creativity!
Last year, she decided to be a pirate. As you can tell from the picture above, it wasn't a "pirate wench" that she had in mind. No, she wanted to be a full blown mini me version of Captain Jack Sparrow. The Hair and make-up took two hours! Not to mention a week of watching all of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies until she could copy his mannerisms perfectly. Good grief kid! Fixate much?
It took her a while, but I finally convinced her that this would be a bad idea only because it would be impossible to move around.
There's still a little bit of time before the big day, but I don't think things are going to get any easier.
