There is No Fair Here

My girls (aged 6 and 4 1/2) were squabbling about something not being fair. I used my mommy wisdom and told them "Fair has a ferris wheel and cotton candy. There is no fair here." Good right? Shut those little whiners DOWN! BOOM! Just like that. (Poor little things. You should have seen there little faces.)
Or so I thought. A few days later I was asking my 6 yr. old if it was fair that she play with her sister's toys and then not have to share hers? "Mom, fair is pony wides and wemonade. Dere is no faiw hewe." And BAM! Just like that I was put in my place by a six year old. (Yeah it happens more than you would imagine... *sigh*)

So here's what I wore the week I was schooled by a first grader.


  1. Good post. I like the outfits and the little girl sounds like a winner.

  2. I am just cracking up at what happened
    My sons are young men now and they will throw something back at me quicker than I can blink an eye. I will have to remember that line about the fair though, I don't think I have heard it before!
    Looking good!

  3. All of your outfits are keepers and perfect for wearing to a FAIR! As a mom and high school teacher, I am put in my place often with my own words!! She sounds like a smart, fun child!

  4. Man, I hate it when my words come back to bite me! You look adorable in all your outfits! ~Serene

  6. I love those kids!! And your outfits are awesome!!
