Semantics

If you know Mary Virginia at all you know that she is very, very aware of her wardrobe. She prefers dresses. Skirts are ok. Pants are intolerable.

She also loves anytime I wear a dress or a skirt, which actually isn’t very often. The first time she saw me in my bathrobe she exclaimed, “OH MOMMY! I do like that dress!”

But her tone was more — “Well, it’s not the ball gown I’d hoped for but this is at least a step in the right direction.”

I know I could do better. But in my defense, even Cinderella has an entire flock of birds helping her with that chignon in the morning.

One morning, after I got dressed —

 

Mary Virginia: Well, I do see that you’re wearing your Halloween costume today, Mommy.

Me: My Halloween costume? Why do you think I’m wearing my Halloween costume?

Mary Virginia: Because you have your black pants. And your black eyes.
