Eighteenth day of “Meet Shadow”.

“DAAAaaaad, I want to be a fairy princess!”
This is the answer to the question “What costume should dad buy you for carnival? Baby lion? Baby bear? Baby penguin?”, yeah, dad has some unresolved issues with baby wild animals, but come one, have you ever seen a two years kid dressed as a penguin? I mean, it’s a full size penguin running around!… anyway, the answer would always be “fairy princess”, and after a while Claudia and I had to capitulate and check Amazon for fairy costumes. Which we found and got today.
If you have or ever had a little girl you’ll know how volatile they can be, so you’ll know that is way better to double check their will with a real-life test. That’s why I wanted to see if she really liked the dress before finding myself handling a major crisis a few hours before the carnival party. Hence, as soon as I brought Agata back from school I gave her the costume and dressed her up in it.
She loved it. And Ombra too, since she tried to chew on the wings anytime Agata would turn around. Which ended up in Agata standing on the little green chair, and Ombra laying on her pillow pretending she wasn’t interested.
