Cool kid

Isn't she cool?

My daughter is a regular little fashionista. I don't really know if "fashionista" is a word, but that is the way I describe her. She has a definite sense of style, be it wearing cowboy boots with a miniskirt, or matching her shoes and hair ribbons. She does an excellent job for a 6-year-old.

She obviously loves pink, but has been known to wear other colors. A while back she decided she wanted to wear her black mini skirt. I said OK as long as she picked out some other clothes to go with it. She came back with black shoes, black tights and a black long-sleeve t-shirt with a pink lace spider emblazoned on the front. She showed them to me and asked if they would go good together. Even I knew enough to say yes.

Once she was all decked out with her hair fixed the way she wanted it (she's good about telling us if she wants a pony tail, dog ears, half pony tail or leave it down) she looked at herself in the mirror and said, "(Aunt) Rachel would like this outfit."

I wonder what she'll be like when she's a teenager.

I'm hoping she'll go goth.

Cool picture, by the way.

Goth, yes goth! I think she'll give you and your credit cards a serious run for their money when she's a teenage fashionista.

Beautiful. Maybe she'll go grunge. I started that movement, by the way.

I'm looking for the worry lines in your forehead to grow through the years. She's a pistol, that's for sure.

Gee, guys, thanks for the confidence boosters. I can handle goth ... I can handle grunge ... I just hope she believes me when I tell her all boys are jerks and none of them will ever be good enough for her.
