My Pink Ladies
The girls love to have their photo taken, and specifically, want to have outfit photos taken with mommy. I've been a little leery of doing that. I feel like Andrew and I already have to fight against society telling our girls that their most valuable asset is how they look. I'm really trying to instill in them that fashion and style is one of mommy's hobbies, among others like yoga, reading, and singing really loud in the car. It's pleasurable for me, and I don't do it for anyone else's approval.
Yesterday though I had to call in sick from work to take Andi to the doctor. I was feeling indulgent and after Arlie picked out outfits for the two of them, we headed outside for pictures. As you can see, it was kind of like herding cats. Andi knew she wanted to be in our vicinity but wouldn't turn around. Arlie is "posing like mommy" in the last photo. Yeah. . .thanks, kid.
