a blue dress

So the other day Mason was practicing his ballet while watching Little Einsteins. He turned to me and said,"I want you to go to the store and get me a blue dress." That made me laugh. A nervous laugh. But my smile widened when I thought of telling Jaymeson about it later that night. Ha ha. His only boy. Actually, I thought Mason would just forget about it and move on. Nope. He has asked me for three days for a blue dress. I was telling our friends about it at a wedding luncheon on Saturday and they said, "Maybe that's the bribe you've been waiting for. Tell him you'll buy him a blue dress if he goes in the potty!" We all laughed - Jaymeson's was a nervous laugh. I figured I'd try it. Why not? I have already offered him a million dollars and he didn't care. In fact, I have already offered him a horse, a tractor, a ladder that goes all the way to the moon and even a spoon that would be only his - one his sisters could only dream of using. It didn't matter what I offered. He didn't care about being in diapers forever (ever! ever! ...that's an echo) So I said,"Mason, if you go pee pee and poopoo in the potty, I'll buy you a blue dress!" He went in the potty EIGHT times today.

Of course, the way I see it, we'll just deal with one problem at a time...

ha-ha-ha, too much fun. Actually one of my boys wanted the same thing when he was 3... At his daycare they had several dresses he could try, and they took pictures of him in a dress (ehm... many different dresses). I laughed and laughed.... and my husband didn't. At least not as loud as I *LOL*.
BTW - he (my boy, not my husband) is now 6 and absolutelly deny it is him in the pictures!!!

I have a great dancing blue dress from Erica's recital. It's even one shouldered...and would look quite lovely on Mason...unless he wants to pick out his own. ;0) Who knew that would be the trick. Hey...and thanks so much for posting the photos! love it! love you tons!

Hey, you need an embarrassing picture of him to show his future wife anyway! Might as well get it over with now. I hear Jaymee's got one of him in a dress too. He turned out straight afterwards.....well, a straight guy who'll read the same books you do and go see Hairspray, etc. All good!
