Sometimes we wear green

This morning, the girls had to go to the dentist. I always schedule their appointments on school holidays so that I don't have to take them out of school. I know, I'm such a mean mom.

The dentist is a sweet woman who has the most adorable sing-song type voice. She's the kind of dentist you LOVE your kids to have because she is like the Mary Poppins of dentists. She can do no wrong, even when she has a million things in their mouths.

She takes a look at the three of us and says, "Oh, you all look SO PRETTY in your pink today." Meanwhile, the girls are wearing Lilly fleece and little stretchy pants and I'm wearing a Beach Days Lilly hoodie from years ago with a denim skirt and McKims. Yes, we're very pink, but not particularly the portrait of fashion today. After all, we're just going to the dentist.

Natalia answers, "OH thank you; we wear pink every day."

Then Alexia says, "No, Natalia, that's not true. Sometimes we wear green." I almost laughed out loud. The dentist kind of smiled took us back to her office and went to work. I think that she is very amused by us.



  1. is it really warm enough in MD to wear McKims??!!! I am very envious!

  2. Clearly you are raising them right as we say in the South!

  3. We always have to go to the dentist today as well. Your dentist sounds similar to ours and your girls sound adorable!

  4. Thanks! You're all so sweet!
    @EntertainingMom ~ It was 54 degrees here today. I was thrilled to not have snow and below freezing temperatures that I braved the McKims even though it was not super warm.

    @Pink, Green & Southern ~ My mom talks A LOT about raising them right! I think she's southern at heart.

  5. I always did the same thing with doc and dent app'ts. Great moms think alike. It's the preppy mafia thing, too. ;-) xoxo

  6. PG&S took my comment! LOL I loved the weather today... perfect for Mama and me to have a lovely lunch and fun shopping!

  7. Love those Minnies,they say the cutest things! Clearly, you are raising them right. Yep, I'm from the south! :-) XOXO
