Adelie and Staley's World

Adelie and Staley's World

Sunday, December 18, 2016


Remember when Staley was in "A Charlie Brown Christmas?"  And remember how her director wanted her to wear black jazz shoes or black dress shoes?  And remember how I took Staley on the worst shoe shopping excursion imaginable where Staley literally tried on every. single. pair. of black shoes in the store and ended in tears because every. single. pair. felt so horrible to her that she couldn't possibly wear them for the play?  And remember how I ended up frazzled and frustrated and bought the pair that Staley finally deemed the least horrible of the lot?

Remember when the director then said that she wanted Staley and her twin to wear pigtails?  And remember how Staley was so resistant to this because pigtails pull and hurt her head and she couldn't possibly stand to wear pigtails for the play?  And remember how, for Staley's dress rehearsal, I put her hair in pigtails at least 5 different times to try to decrease the pulling and make them tolerable for Staley to wear?  Remember how that, too, resulted in tears?  Remember how I ended up frazzled and frustrated and making idle threats about Staley not being able to be in the play if she can't handle what the director asks her to do?

Then remember this morning for church how Staley asked me to put her hair in pigtails and asked if she could wear her new black shoes?
