outfit of the day(bird): adoption

pants, earrings ~ F21
sweater ~ Marshalls
shoes ~ thrifted

it's funny to me how a child's mind works. my kids are learning new things every day, and things that seem obvious to me, are not always so for them. the other night, as i was putting the kids to bed, henry asked me, "mama, does a baby have to be born to be adopted?" not knowing where the question came from, or why he was asking, i did my very best to answer him. i thought i did a pretty good job, but then he asked, "when did you adopt me?" we didn't, you grew in my belly, we made you ourselves. "yeah, but when did you adopt me?" no henry, we made you, we didn't adopt you. "ok, so what if you decide you want to put me up for adoption?" oh henry, we would never. we love you so so much, and we will always want you. we will always love you, no matter what.

and he finally got it, he understood the process. so of course his last question was, "so, can you adopt me a brother?"

ps.  i wore these shoes one day last week as sort of a f-you (pardon) to mother nature. her response was to snow another four inches. i lost.


  1. Mother Nature always wins. Fabulous shoes though ;o)

  2. Those wedges were worth it though weren't they?
    P.S. Your boy is sly! You walked right into that. Have fun adopting a baby brother for him! (J/k)

  3. Um that is adorable. :) Little kids say the cutest things. I love this outfit, I cant believe you guys are still getting snow. This says mother nature I am trying to pretend its spring, please let it be spring. :) I am in love with the color of that top!


  4. Haha! That is so funny! I was wearing my boots earlier in the week...I am ready to put them away till next winter!
