Dora overload

Don’t get me wrong, I love Dora, I really do. I watch her every day (sometimes from the other room) and I sing her songs (sometimes they won’t stop) and I even dream about her. We’re learning a bit of Spanish and we have multiple Dora dolls, video’s, dinnerware, cups, tupperware, clothes, and even the backpack. (there goes that song again) When Zoe recieved a Dora makeup and nail kit for Christmas she was super excited and I felt my heart flutter. Makeup. Gooey lip gloss and sparkly fingernail polish, a nail file, a picture frame and tiny Dora fingernails with a little purse to carry it all around in. Where ever we go she can take it with her and put on multiple layers of gloss. I’m really OK with it because it makes her so happy but fingernails on a 3 year old just doesn’t seem right. We put them on and she sat and smiled and said, “not my thumb.” They lasted about 5 minutes and I have no idea where they are now and I’m OK with that too.

    That made me want to laugh and cry. You really not only have a gift for photography but writing, too. She is precious, and, I’m sure you already know this- growing up too fast! I have not met Zoe but feel like I have with your pictures and blogs! She needs to ride Blaze:)

    Oh my goodness!! These photos are amazing! Do you ever give rights to artists to paint from your photos? My daughter is looking for sources to paint from for a fundraiser for Haiti.
