She wore it to school, the store, outside to play. She loved it. We had many converstations about how she shouldn't wear it while eating spaghetti or in the snow because it wasn't the type of clothing you threw in the wash.
She wore it to daycare and the teachers fussed over her until weeks later she still wore it and they just looked at her and looked at me like, "really? again?"
I loved this about her. I thought it was quirky and endearing.
One day we got in the car on our way to daycare and she screamed the whole way there because she forgot to put it on.
Sometimes she wore it without the wings, sometimes we couldn't find the wings, sometimes she wore the antennae with other outfits without the costume.
The antennae? Yes, antennae on a fairy princess costume. I did't understand it either but that's the way the costume came. To my knowledge, neither fairies nor princesses have antennae but when you combine the two, apparently, antennae are born.
Needless to say she enjoyed Halloween.
So much so she is already planning this year's costume. My husband took her to see Max and Ruby at a local toy store.
This is the conversation we had when I came home from work:
Daddy: She decided they will be Max and Ruby for Halloween.
Annabelle: I'm going to be Ruby.
Annabelle: And Dashiell will be Max.
How cute will that be?
