Somehow a small miracle occurred tonight and Alexis and I actually managed to get to gymnastics a few minutes early. Instead of hanging out with the scary moms in the lobby, I figured we would make a quick run through a nearby department store. I tossed her little booty into a cart and set out for the kids department in hopes of finding a cute little hooded dress and leggings combo something like the one she was wearing.
As we were rushing back, Alexis started playing with the four-inch zipper just below her chin. She zipped and unzipped the opening over and over then decided to stop with it down. While it wasn't quite so low that she was channeling Jennifer Lopez's green Chanel dress, I figured it was worth asking her to zip it back up. Alexis looked at me and said, "No."
So I repeated myself, "Alexis, zip your dress up, please."
I added in a good ol' Mom Stare for good measure.
She replied, "I don wanna."
"Alexis McKinnley, fix your dress right now or I'll take Baby Shell away," I threatened.
Alexis looked at me, face contorted, and said, "But I wanna show boobies!"
I think that will be the end of front-zippered dresses. Forever.
