Pageant Days

Charli Beth has been doing here and there pageants since she was 6 weeks old. Mostly she will do the fair, or the little festival pageants that our city or the nearby counties have and she seems to always love it!

I have been one of those Mom's to freak out and worry about what C.B. will wear, if she will do good on stage or if she will act like a little hell cat.
Now, I have came to the decision in the last year to ask her if she wants to do them. She likes to show off but sometimes you never know if she just wants to stay home and play. I quit asking her for a little while and we skipped several pageants because she is in an older category now and the other little girls are double her size. But now I think it's time to just let Char be own little sassy self.

She absolutely loves strutting her stuff but I have no idea where she got it from. I can not say that I am shy but I would rather keep what my Momma gave me to myself rather than be all sassy walking on stage. This is one of the million things that I love about her.

Charli also loves the fact that she may (or may not) get a trophy or a crown. We have tried to teach her that sometimes she may get one and sometimes there is just not enough to go around. Her doing pageants to us is not because we need someone to tell us that she is pretty, or prettier than another little girl because every little girl is beautiful, but this is just something that we have always had fun doing!

If it ever gets to the day that she becomes a little "toddler & tiaras" misfit girl we will be d.o.n.e for now I will let my girl strut and blow kisses for our redneck town =)

very sweet :) I don't think pageants are bad for little girls but geeze some moms go crazy. That being said, I love toddlers and tiaras it makes me feel normal!

She is adorable! I kept thinking she was the same age as my daughter, but she must be older. I think your ticker may be wrong! ;)

She is such a doll in all those pretty smocked dresses! I love that last pic! I'm guessing that woman was NOT CB's greatest fan!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
