"Hey, little one! Where do you think you're both going, and undressed like that?!!!"
"Who us?" says Bailey...
"well, we're going to the beach 'cos the sun is out! And I'm not undressed! I have my knickers on and my hat and boots!! So I won't catch cold!"
"But it's only January, and we're nowhere near the beach!!"
"But we always go to the beach when it's sunny!"
"I know we do sweetie but not today, right? Now go and put some clothes on before you catch cold!"
"But it's not cold mama, and I wanted to play in the water, look I have my armbands and I have my bucket and spade! Look I have them all ready to go!"
"Cheer up Bailey, don't be sad! Maybe we'll go to the coast next week and you can play in the sand if the weather's nice! How does that sound?"
"OK! Can Chip come too please? He has his rubber ring!"
"Yes, he can come along too, if he's a good dog! Now run along and put on some clothes Bailey...it may be very warm today but it's still only January!"
Off she goes!!
Now some of you might be thinking that finally I'm covering my girls modesty by making them some knickers!!! I have indeed been making this pair but they are not for my girls, they're for a friend!! My own girls will have to have chilly cheeks for just a little bit longer until I get around to making them some for themselves!!!! But I was quite pleased with how this first pair of knickers with frills on the back, came out!!!
