I had a great conversation with Anna last week. Before I tell you what she said, though, you need to know a little background information.
1. We were talking on the phone while she was in Orlando and I was here in Northfield.
2. She was there because Kyle's parents took the 3 older girls to Disney World for 4 days.
3. While packing I had told her she couldn't bring her dress-up clothes because "it would be too warm in Florida for her long, hot dresses" but what I really didn't want was for her to wear them and feel bad that her homemade dresses weren't as pretty as the expensive dresses that some of the other girls would be wearing.
Anna: "Oh, and mom? I have seen 22- No, 23, girls wearing those dresses and they don't look hot. They look fine."
Me: "Oh, really?"
Anna: "Yes. They don't look hot at all. They look fine."
