Little Magician sat me down the other day with a most serious face and told me she wanted to “add a new name” to her name. She didn’t want to change her name, but she wanted another one that people could use.
Curious, I asked her what she wanted her new name to be.
“Danger,” she said.
“Danger?” I repeated.
She didn’t really have a reason why she wanted to be called “Danger” – she just liked how it sounded. By her description, her alter ego Danger is a karate-chopping, hair-styling, cake-baking, big sister African princess (combining all of her current fave activities/identities) – and when she asked me if she could have a new dress to wear as “Danger,” the perfect one had just arrived in the mail from Lil Miss Dress Up.
Lil Miss Dress Up is a Toronto-based boutique specializing in custom special occasion wear for kids.
With approximately 100 dresses in a variety of colours in store at any time, we focus on a smaller, more carefully selected collection of dress options, but one that encompasses a variety of styles, textures and silhouettes.
They’ll be at this weekend’s Babytime Show in Mississauga (get your tickets here with the code TINYHUMAN for $3 off), but Little Magician-I mean, Danger-and BB were lucky enough to get custom dresses from the boutique this week!
The girls looked gorgeous in their gowns! Made of soft, shimmery satin with a sturdy back zipper and puffy crinoline, these dresses will be perfect for our upcoming family photos and next formal event. My kids were made to stand out, not fit in – so it’s awesome that they’ll be able to do just that in their new Lil Miss Dress Up dresses!
However, I have to keep an extra eye on little girls named Danger who like to karate-chop all over the house in their dresses, and little sisters who watch (and will likely soon try to emulate) their moves. Pray for me, y’all.
