I am so behind on my posting and daily happenings so here is a real quick one
I have learned that rewarding Gabrielle's good behavior has its benefits. I recently picked up this princess crown & clip on earrings at Target for $2. She was beside herself when she earned it. The cheap thing broke the 1st hour she wore it and she gets really frustrated because the earrings won't stay on her ears ... but it made a cute picture while they lasted.
I bought this ballerina leotard from Cindy Wright for $.50 I think and what a buy!!! It has been worn more than any other clothing item in her overfilled closet. She loves to play dress up. She stands in front of the fireplace (where she can easily catch her own image) and sings "I'm a ballerina, ballerina, ballerina. I'm a ballerina, and Gabi's my name. I sing and I dance and I twirl and I leap. I'm a ballerina, and Gabi's my name." (sang to the tune of The More we get together).
All for now - more to come. Love, C
