Cutting-edge fashion

December 29th, 2010

I'm sure the editors of the Ala Moana Center magazine didn't have this in mind when they designed their publication, but it's found a new life in the hands of my daughter.


She and my mom were playing one afternoon when my mom suggested it be fun to cut out the pictures of the dresses and other retails items. Olivia took this to task and soon had a long line of dresses on the table. When I got home she was working on the purses page.


Olivia kept it lined up to proudly show me when I got home. She thought the dresses were pretty and wanted me to leave it on the table for all to admire, instead of piling it up so we could get ready to eat dinner.


If I ever get to meet them, I have to remember to thank the editors for laying it out perfectly for a three-year-old to cut out and play with. I know that wasn't their aim, but it did buy me another half hour of uninterrupted time to cook dinner while someone was busy admiring all the fashions.
