A Tale of Little Tommy

Outfit 6: Shirt: Target, Belt: F21, Skirt: Handmade, Pin: Handmade, Shoes: Steve Madden


Have you ever heard of those weirdo books that try to help children understand "their bodily functions". Yeah me neither, until I innocently stumbled upon one at the library.  I felt like a naive little elementary student as I giggled through "Potty Time", a wholesome way to let children know that the toilet isn't just for throwing things in. I'm sorry but I'd rather explain to my child why he can no longer poop in his diaper then have to go through the whole coming of age story with rhymes and clever pictures. Anyways, I opted out after little Tommy explained where his bum goes on the potty...can I get some pictures of zoo animals or something up in here?

  3. Cute outfit...I wore a pin kind of like than in my last outfit picture! I've always wanted to take my outfit pictures in a library; maybe one of these days I'll get adventurous enough to do it. And I can't believe you are already on outfit 6. I feel so far behind...I'm still on 3!

    You look adorable by the way! I LOVE your pin!

  22. Your brooch is adorable! A few years back some friends & I stumbled upon a book similar to this at Target we had a good laugh... but I bet it is helpful for kiddos.
