My daughter loves to dress up. If I told her we had to leave the house for a month and that she could take just one thing to play with, she would pick her favorite dress up costume. Every month, when the Chasing Fireflies catalog comes in the mail, Madelyn sits down with Post-It notes and marks every page that has something on it that she wants. By the time she’s reached the end of the catalog, she’s usually used a couple dozen Post-It notes.
Last week, Madelyn got to pick out a Halloween costume from the Chasing Fireflies catalog. This was not an easy task, let me tell you. We looked at this catalog during dinner, before homework, after homework, and in-between. Finally, after about 6 hours of looking at the catalog she decided on the Sweet Fairy Princess costume.
This week, her Sweet Fairy Princess Halloween costume was delivered, and she would wear it 24/7 if I let her. She loves it! She feels like a fairy-tale princess, she said. I have been stuck in bed for the last week and a half due to surgery so my husband helped her put on her costume for the first time. As he was helping her, he felt the need to remind Madelyn that just because she was going to look like a fairy princess, doesn’t mean she can act like a princess. She looked confused by that statement. Like she was thinking “whatever do you mean Daddy? I am a princess”.
The picture in the catalog doesn’t do the Sweet Fairy Princess costume justice. I wasn’t expecting nearly the amount of detail as this costume has and as you can see in the photographs above. The fabrics are perfectly delicate yet high quality and sturdy. Madelyn is a sweet girl, which is why she chose the Sweet Fairy Princess costume I suppose. This costume truly makes her personality shine. Maybe wearing a princess costume is the key to making her act like a princess 24/7? Hm.. I might have to try that.
