"Da Ugly Suit" Contest is ON!!!
Oh my... what a day! Today was the day for dress up! Since Halloween, the day "Da Ugly Suit" arrived, our five year old Emma Hope has done nothing but pester me about dressing up in the UGLY SUIT! On Halloween night after our mission of "trick or treat" was complete, I laid her out (the suit) on the table and while I marveled in her complete ugliness; Emma fell in love with her. "Is it your's Mommy? It's beautiful!"... Then... "I love it" "Can I wear it too?" Samantha (our two year old) loved "her" (the suit) so much she quickly took the tags off. The next "winner" will see how I re-attached them without having to beg at the local Target to borrow a tag gun. Ahhh... fun!
We played dress up tonight! She would not take it off. The first picture you see is almost an hour later. Note the clothes pins making it looks like it fits in the front!
Please note all the drawings on the wall in the background and the "cocktail". My Emma was ready for the beach. Oh my, how we miss the ocean!!!
So... while she was still wearing it, she again asked about "Da Ugly Suit" and what has to happen next. I told her there was a contest and the winner receives the suit. She loves this suit! You have to understand... she's a typical five year old... "Mommy, can I go with the suit?" So while I explained to her how it works, in my head I'm laughing and hearing Yzma's voice (Eartha Kitt) talking about packing the flea in a box and another box and shipping it to herself - minus the smashing part... and I burst into laughter while explaining to Emma that she could not go with the suit... yes... this all in my head while talking... Emma will not be coming with the suit. We kinda like her!!!
For the official contest rules... Visit KIM HERE ... and if you do not have a blog of your own and are considering entering, I would be happy to blog your contest for you.
It is an interesting feeling the happiness, fun, and connectedness (is that a word?) that an ugly bathing suit can bring... stay tuned another opportunity to win is on the way!
