Blue hat, green scarf
Purple mittens, there she goes
I watch and chuckle at her style
In her sister’s cast-off clothes
Sister-sweaters, sister tops
‘Lucky’ her when sister shops
Nail-polish, perfume, jewelry
Slippers, purses…too many
Extra wallets, teddy-bears
Scarves and flowers for her hair
…what happens when you are half-grown?
You get big sister’s hand-me-downs

Victoria seldom/never complains but yesterday morning as we were trying to find a suitable top she stated, ‘Mom. Some of these clothes are so old I think they were old from before Emily and Melissa’s days…’
As she headed out to school this morning I couldn't help but chuckle a little at her 'rain-bow' style.
Guess who might be getting clothes for Christmas;)
