The Day Daddy Went Shopping…

I’ll never forget it…We hadn’t lived in our new city very long. Maybe a month or so. One of the boys was sick, so we stayed home from church that Sunday! Matt had gone to church and then to lunch afterwards with some families from church. But, after lunch, he decided to do a little shopping for his baby girl on the way. Due to the move and the craziness of life, he hadn’t done a lot of shopping for her like he had done for the boys. But, this day, he was going to find something JUST for her.

He went to Janie and Jack…and apparently the sale rack was forbidden…because he came home with this…IMG_1752He proudly opened the bag and smiled as I took out each (regular priced) piece. He thought it was SO pretty…and so did I. But, then, I saw this…recieptAnd this Momma almost had a heart attack! He had spent $102.84 on his unborn baby girl…on ONE outfit! I gasped…and then laughed! I can’t say I have outfits that cost $102.84! When I proceeded to look shocked, the Daddy that is apparently already wrapped around his little girl’s finger said, “Is that too much? I don’t know what little girl’s clothes cost!?” I laughed again! Mercy me…we’re in trouble! {And, I talked him in to just keeping the outfit…the sweater and bow went back to the store!}

But, on Sunday, July 20th, I surprised him by bringing his BlissPriss to church all dressed in his outfit. She could finally wear it, and she was stunning…and he was oh so proud!
Three months and before 004
And, it’s still the MOST expensive thing that hangs in her closet!
