Our Q is obsessed with basketball. Which statement has nothing to do with this skirt. The skirt was my doing...a lark, a laugh. She would never have chosen it herself. And yet, always game, she just accepted it.
But tell me...does it not make the most delicious contrast with her dribbling style?
It's not just basketball (although that is, at present, her sport of choice) she loves all types of balls. Soccer, I think, would be her second choice, and she has quite the accurate footwork already!
Releasing a ball that had become stuck under the tulle of her skirts.
But here's the really funny part: we have no idea where she got it. Neither my husband nor I play any team sports - we are both strictly the running/skiing/hiking/snowboarding types. Furthermore, we don't have cable, and we don't watch sports of any kind, live or televised. So...she can't have seen it on TV. It is just - pure and simple - her. This is one of her facets. It fascinates me....
...although it also frightens me, because I have no talent whatsoever for ball sports, and couldn't throw in a straight line if my life depended on it. Q is already a better shot at 20 months of life than I am after years of...OK, well, I never really practiced. But you get the picture.
