Last night, Mimi and I were in my bedroom as I was trying on possible outfits to wear to the Mother's Day event (happening tonight!) during which Megan and I will be giving makeovers to three lucky moms! I told Mimi that I wanted her honest opinion about each outfit, which she promised she would give. I put on the first look and stepped out of my closet. Mimi looked me up and down, narrowed her eyes, and vigorously shook her head. "Oh, no no no, Mama! Not that one! You cannot wear that," she exclaimed. "No? Okay, why don't you like it?" I asked. "Well, Mama," she explained, "It is just much too pretty." I smiled to myself, and then nodded that she was right and went back in the closet to change. This went on for the next few outfits. They were all "far too nice!" or "much too lovely!" or "way too beautiful!" It made my heart swell that she couldn't find a single bad thing to say about her mama (even though, trust me, some of those outfits were not so cute!) We never decided on an outfit and agreed that we would probably have to go shopping in the morning. Hopefully, we will find something just right!
