Lucy was invited to party for one of her cute friends here. She was beyond excited, carrying the invitation around for hours at a time. But when we explained that she was supposed to were a princess outfit to the party she insisted on being an alligator. We gently explained that she would not be going as an alligator and tried to coax her into something pink or something with lace and tulle or something ballerina styled, but she would have none of it. We finally compromised on being a "pirate princess". Mike and I were laughing hard during the whole process of getting her ready! She is so independent minded.
