I can’t stop laughing!
Last Autumn I saw a pic of a kid dressed up as a doe and thought “I want to do that with Nora next year.” So I bought some velvet overalls last September, made her a doe ear flower crown, and got ready to do it this fall.
If I’d seen the original idea on Pinterest (which I didn’t because I hate Pinterest) this would for sure be a #pinterestfail
First of all, I can’t even put makeup on myself correctly so trying to put it on a squirmy toddler while she’s fighting to get away and trying to eat everything was the first disaster. After about 15 minutes I gave up and said “this will have to do!” Next, 12 month clothes are too long on Nora still at over 16 months so I had to keep pulling them up higher and she was still tripping on them.
On top of that, Nora has a runny nose so I kept wiping her nose and she was wiping snot all over her face so even though her “makeup” never looked good, it looked better than this at one point. 😂 She also kept burying her head into my bosom just smearing it all around.
Finally, she’s a wild child, so outside she kept running around just screaming and grunting like some kind of animal, but not the quiet, peaceful, majestic animal that she was sort-of dressed up as.
I almost didn’t post them because they didn’t turn out like I wanted in my head but it was still too funny to me not to share. 😂
