For a long time now Grace has used the term "stand-up dress". It is a phrase she came up with and it is heard in my home every. single. day. Grace likes to wear dresses. But not just any dress, it must be a "stand-up dress" A stand up dress twirls. It passes the stand up test......you have to be able to lift the dress so your arm is horizontal and the fabric stands up. See photo below:
My mom and I were cracking up at Grace last week. My mom was kind enough to be offering a new dress or two from Target for Grace, and Grace would not give a second glance to one single dress. She would perform the "stand up" arm test, the dress would fail, and Grace would walk away.
