Ribbons and Cupcakes

Photobucket
I wore this little babydoll dress to a baby shower (polka-dotted gift box in hand). The multi-coloured prezzie print is very cute - it reminds me of little girls' birthday parties. Someone always cried, and more often than not, it's the birthday girl. I know I did at least once, because my mom bought me an ice-cream cake and she kept it in the fridge rather than in the freezer. It turned into a chocolatey sweating mess.

There were lots of good memories too, of course. I loved how my parents would turn the large living room into an impromptu stage for ballet by pushing all the furniture to the edge of the walls. All of the little girls would perform, in small groups, and the birthday girl (me) would dance solo. We all felt like stars.

Lovely dress! Ah yes... birthday parties were the best as a little girl. Back then, one didn't worry about age ;-)
