A few months back I posted some pictures in a blog of Adria and her awesome outfits. One particular picture prompted my good friend Stacie to email me and tell me that Adria needed a training bra.

I vehemently denied this and convinced myself that they were just shadows. Little boobie shaped shadows.

Two weekends ago we were in Somerset, PA for our annual family reunion. Adria was running all over the place playing with the other kids. And I glance over while she is running around and realize there is movement under her shirt. The shadows were moving!!!!!!!!

I finally crawled out from my tent of denial and realized they were NOT shadows and that my baby girl was getting boobs!

What the HELL?!

So we are at Target and in the girls section and we find the training bras. However they are not called training bras, no. They are called Bralettes.

I don't know how but this makes it worse somehow. Bralette. Bralette. Say it enough and it completely loses meaning. Bralette.

So there I am in the middle of Target, crying, while my daughter is fawning all over the place. OOOOH I love this one it's soo pretty!!!!

I manage to get myself together. I honestly felt like I was watching another person pick out a Bralette. Not my baby girl. Except that now, she's not a baby. GAH! When did that happen! I think it's really wrong that I was purchasing a bra and a Tweetie Bird nightgown for the same child.

Later that night we went out to eat. I told Adria to go upstairs and get dressed. She comes down in an adorable outfit, white t-shirt, and her bralette. Now when we got back from the store she didn't want to show her dad what we had purchased and I told him about it but we really didn't go into great length about it.

Adria walks by her dad and clearly she has on her bralette and his jaw fell into his lap. He did about a triple take as she walked by. Points and just grunts..and I look at him and nod.

Yup, that's exactly what you think it is.

Is this what's next?!?!?

Literature: Adria style

I know, I know, I has been a LONG time since I have posted anything. Life is just a teensy bit hectic right now. That does not mean I don't have a ton of Adria goodness coming your way...believe me I do.

Adria has been quite the busy bee this summer. She spent a week down in Virginia Beach with her Uncle Tim and Aunt Cindy and had QUITE the good time. Then she spent a week at the beach with my mom and my sister. I was there for a few days but had to come home early. Duty called.

So as you know from reading this blog, Adria is quite creative. Some things she comes up with are just amazing. For example, on Mother's Day I came home to a banner that said "Happy Mother's Day" that she had cut out by hand and hung up on the wall...just gorgeous.

So for whatever reason, she decided that while we were at the beach, she was going to cut out shapes and tape them to her leg. I have no idea why, honestly I've stopped asking.

I told her if she wore the cutouts on her leg to the beach, then she could get a tan in the shape of whatever was attached.

So mom and I are standing in the kitchen and she comes out after considering this and says...

"Maybe I could cut out the letter A and tape it on my chest and I could get a tan with my initial there"

I am not exaggerating at and I literally fell down laughing. Poor Adria is standing there looking thoroughly confused.

"No baby, you definitely do NOT want to do that!"

"Why not, Mommy"

"I don't feel like explaining it, but let's just say it's not good"

It was really, really funny.

If you don't think it was funny, I'm not sure we can be friends anymore. If you have NO idea what I'm talking about read this:
The Scarlet Letter

Then re-read this entry. If you still don't think it is funny, well then I really don't care. ;-)

I just love this!
