DAY 231


“Don't let anyone tell you that you have to be a certain way. Be unique.Melissa Etheridge

Today Pokey had her 2nd Activity Days and it was at the mall on a modesty quest. I did a little school shopping there as well and ran into them a couple times. I was there at Justice when Pokey tried on this entire outfit from head to toe. It had lots of sparkles and I'm not sure the skirt passed the modesty guidelines, but she paired it with a some leggings. When she tried it on for Daddy tonight he thought it looked very "blossom-ish" (for those who know what that show is). Luckily she didn't. It's the first outfit that she's ever completely picked out and I had a 40% off coupon so I went ahead and purchased it. She definitely knows what she likes. I wish I could have been more sure of that at age 8. I'm realizing more and more we have different taste and I'm trying to be ok with that and let her have her originality.


  1. She's adorable and the hat makes her eyes look very blue. My girls would be jelous!

  2. Oh I think that's fun! I DO know who blossom is..hahaha And i can see that in what you described haha. I think that it would be fun to see Makaya into her own style...but I think I'd be ever so hestitant too, just because it's another "Growing-up Mile stone"...Oh these kids!! :)
