This is a typical Tessa day:

We wake up.

Everyone gets ready.

I doll-up this baby girl of mine because she loves, loves, loves, jewelry, skirts, and hair accessories.

I love having a baby doll to dress up.

She loves getting ready too. She laughs and giggles the whole time I am putting pretty clothes on her.

We get the kids to the bus.

…and then this pretty little thang, decides to un-do all the pretty.

We hadn’t even been dressed a half an hour before she plopped herself down and started in with the chalk and the water.  Yes!! Chalk and Water. In that outfit.

This is her noticing that she has chalk on her boots.

She also has blue chalk all over her shirt and sweater.

It’s either chalk, or paint, or food, or even my makeup that ends up all over our pretty little outfits.

Sometimes, we walk though the door from Stella’s bus stop and she takes all her clothes off and puts on a dress-up.

…and that is how she will roll for the rest of the day.

This pretty little hair-do was falling out by mid-morning; wrestling with your brother will do that.

Someday she will learn that once you get all pretty, you don’t want to do anything to mess it up.

I guess I should learn not to put so much effort in to it.

But I don’t.

It’s all good, because I enjoy dolling up my precious mess, and she enjoys being a kid.

So in my book; it’s a win win.

I found some time this weekend, and I scrapbooked it.

P.S.  It’s the first day of my favorite month.  I am soooo excited.  I love October. 

Happy October 1st everyone.

I guess thats what happens when you don't have "play clothes"! LOL
I seriously thought it was Stella I was looking at bc that little girl in these pics is way too big to be "my tess".. Surely you are sad to see her so big...I sure am! She is so adorable and has grown tons since I last saw her!

Tessa looks so so big! My goodness!! She's completely gorgeous - before, during, and after the glorious mess. :) And beautiful beautiful scrapbook pages! I love how you do that!
