Having THAT conversation yet again

I have been working like a mad woman to get some painting done in the house before my parents and in-laws come visit next week. As we were headed out to catch the bus, Hannah turns to me (as I am fully ensconced in my paint garb) and says:

"Um, Mom...aren't you going to be embarrassed going out like that?"

"No, why would I be embarrassed?"

"Because nobody pretty much wears clothes like that outside. Shouldn't you change?"

This from the girl who thinks this is appropriate for outside wear:


Fashion advice noted. And ignored.

Ha Ha, I love it. Like you said before, can't wait till I get to the point where I am embarassing them. Also, I don't think I have ever been the FIRST to comment on your blog. Kudos to me!

Ah, darn Emily you beat me! Hannah is so funny. What a little princess. 5 yrs old and already ashamed of her mamma's clothes. Love the new mantle look btw! You have got more done on your house in the few months you'ved lived there then we did in the three years we lived in Billerica house.

I love all of your Hannah conversations...she could star in a funny sitcom like Full House or something. Cute girl. I hope mine has just as much personality!

Hannah clearly has a handle on the value of accessorizing. Maybe if you pull the shoulders of your painting tshirt down, flashdance-style, you'll get her a-ok.

I think there was a compliment buried in there though, C...she kind of called you pretty :).

Every time I saw Hannah she always had her Bella costume in tow. She is absolutely priceless!
