Little Monkey Girl

So it was only a matter of time before Miss Allie realized that she was the only girl in her weekly gymnastics class who didn't have a cute little leotard.

Throughout the first few weeks, she was excited to hoist her body up and around the bar, scale the parallel bars while crawling like a bear, turn somersaults, and skillfully grace the balance beam. And all while perfectly content in her tank top and shorts.

I knew it would happen sooner or later, so I decided to just wait it out. Then, around Week 6, it happened. As kids began entering the building for their class that day, Allie did a bit of a double-take when she saw the little girl in the pink leotard.

A while later after the class started, she cast a sideways glance at the little girl in the red leotard. I knew it wouldn't be long then. For I know that longing glance. Kind of like the one I had back in 6th grade for the girl who had every style and color of Dittos jeans.

So ... I'm sure anyone can see where this is going ... after class that day Allie spotted the leotards on display at the Little Gym. And, true to form, she picked out a pink one with monkeys. It's so Allie.

And isn't she just the cutest thing ever???
