Lily's new shirt




Somebody got a new shirt and now it's difficult to get her in anything else!
Lily is lovin' her "cereal shirt". I think it's mainly due to the fact that daddy LOVES cereal. It is certainly not just a breakfast food for that guy. Eats it as a snack, and enjoys it for dinner about three times a week.
Makes life real easy on me. I don't have to cook very often, which is a good thing for everyone involved. As much as I would love to succeed in this area, I don't. I am NOT a good cook. I have a few things that taste alright, but everything else usually ends up in the trash. So, God gave me a husband with a love of cereal and a daughter who eats next to nothing. It works. For now, anyway. (A typical dinner for my child is a bowl of berries and some oatmeal. And, I have TRIED to get her to eat lots and lots of stuff, people!)
Anyhoo, back to the shirt. I bought it for her last week because it was bright and spring-like and everyone knows by now how ready I am for warm weather! So now the first words out of her mouth in the morning are "put clothes on. bween shirt. bween cereal shirt. daddy yuvs cereal, momma!" So, if you see lots of pics and videos of her with the same shirt please know that she DOES own other things, but chooses to wear this.
She did wear her new banana shirt today when I broke the news to her that her cereal shirt was being laundered. She was OK with the switch, cuz her banana t-shirt is pretty stinkin' cool too.
And, you know how much MONKEYS love bananas!

I could eat cereal for all three meals. It is the best creation on earth!

LOVE the t-shirt.

What a cute shirt....before I read your post, I thought "that is perfect for spring!" :)

We love cereal here too! It's simple and mighty tasty! ;)

My 2nd son is a cereal addict and my first son has never even touched it before, he thinks it's gross and he's never tasted it.

Cute tee!

I love looking at happy faces in the morning and that's why I get on your blog! Lily looks very fashionable in her new t-shirt. Enjoy the spring weather girls....

Cute shirt on an even cuter little girl! Hannah loves cereal, as long as it doesn't come with milk! She hates milk!

Hey! Lynn from Macomb here. Thanks for posting on my blog. Your daughter is adorable!

I just watched Dr. Roizen on PBS yesterday and I'd say oatmeal and berries are a pretty nutritious meal!

I am sure you have been told this before Nikki but Lilly REALLY has the sweetest smile I have ever seen. She is such a cutie pie! Oh and Olivia LOVES Rice-Krispie cereal and wants to have like 3 bowls in the morning! Go figure?

That shirt is awfully cute -- and now i see that she is wearing it in the Sound of Music video!!

Ooh -- I'd like to see the banana shirt as well!

I'm laughing about God giving you a husband who eats cereal and a daughter who eats next to nothing. I am in the same boat as far as cooking.

Hi...i'm visiting from many other china adoption blogs even though I am not in the category.
Your girl is CUTE! and for the cereal...I'm there with your hubby. I've almost got my hubby just as attached too! Unfortunately...my kiddo didn't start eating cold cereal until he was 6! I was very concerned..... :)
Great blog!

Cute girl in a cute shirt. Eli has started being picky about his shirts too. The worn-out Wiggles shirt is the current favorite.

a&mg said...

We're big cereal eaters too, so I am in agreement with Lily on the coolness of her shirt:)
