Thoughts from a domestic engineer
What--it's all blue...
I struggle with letting my 5 year old do it. If she had this outfit everyone would know she did it. But sometimes she gets close, close enough that maybe someone would just think I have bad taste. I am proud of myself that I let her do it, but I try to give her constructive criticism. Is that wrong?
Sister Pottymouth, I hate to say this, but after seeing what caused Trousergate, I can sadly enough see this ensemble gracing the runways of Milan in a few years...
Man, how I wish I would have taken pictures of E~'s fabulous kindergarten outfits. She wore tutus and flapper fringe and fairy wings and bright orange fleece with hot pink flowers. She did her own hair, too -- often by pinning it up with every blessed butterfly clip in the house. And I don't have a single picture of any of those creations.Autonomy is great. I seldom wasted any time forcing my kids into matchy-matchy outfits (okay, family Christmas photos excluded). The upside is that I think she ended up with a unique sense of style and a lot of self confidence, and both are still growing and shaping.Good for you!
Autonomy is the best!I've always been so grateful when children dressed themselves that I've not given much thought to how their outfits looked. Except that get-ups such as these are AWESOME.
He's pretty adorable. Good job, mama.
