Elise is as sweet and girlish as any daughter could be. It's a joy to have her by my side (frequent costume changes notwithstanding).
But even I had to laugh when I saw her choice of naptime reading: an old copy of Tablescapes, swiped from my bookshelf.
I suppose I should round up some books to build her character, not just her place setting ability!
Looks like a little girl after my own heart!
That's hilarious! At least she has good taste!
Looks like a new Martha Stewart in the making. The apple does not fall far from the tree. I am sure she will be very much her mother's daughter. Thanks for the sweet story. Roxie
Ah, she is her mother's daughter. How precious!
She will really be ahead of the game when it comes time to make her own beautiful home. She is such a doll!
I'm always on the lookout for those character building books for Brenna, too. The True Princess is a good one. The illustrations are colorful and pretty (just a little...Modern? for my tastes, but Brenna loves them) and the story is lovely - all about developing a servant's heart.
What I'd like to find are books with old-fashioned values built in. Allegories can seem a little heavy-handed, ya know? Sorry, didn't mean to go off on a tangent in your comments box!
lol Love it! I have one of those too. hehe
I often find an issue of Domino or Cottage Living in the sticky little fingers of my toddlers...
Yep, me too. My four year old likes to take one of my issues of Architectural Digest (I've loved it for years but only recently subscribed for the first time because I got an UNBELIEVEABLE rate!) to bed with her and "read" it, which thrills me...I love seeing little girls begin loving the things that will someday help them to be good mommies and homemakers. Elise is beautiful, Meredith. She's sure to be a wonderful helper with the new baby!
We've got photos of several of our babies or toddlers reading National Review. Not quite as useful as a decorating book, but I suppose it is more characteristic of our family. :)
This is SO cute, Meredith! I guess Elise just comes by her good taste in books naturally....& she's not gonna fight it! :o)
My daughter (20 mos.) loves reading cookbooks and Victoria magazine! :) I have a few small paperback cookbooks from the Dollar Store just for her. :)
Your daughter is my kinda girl!! Little Martha Stewart in the making :)
How funny! I remember reading my mom's Better Homes and Gardens gardening books when I was growing up.
That is so darn cute!
ahhh well at least it is a book.. My 5 year old spent her hard earned TV minutes avidly watching an infomercial for a steam mop. Her choice, not mine. At the end of the show she told me she was going to buy it for me and clean the whole floor. :-)
