I’m giving away our new favorite book – Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten here.
I have a new giveaway up for a Monopoly board game here.
Today, I noticed that Little Miss was wearing a dress for the third day in a row. I was hoping that perhaps my discussion of her tomboy ways and needing an alien lunchbox might have subconsciously rubbed off on her and her hatred of skirts and dresses (since I have only been able to find a single pair of navy dress pants for girls that she needs for her school uniform).
I commented to her on it, and asked her:
Little Miss, I noticed you’re wearing a dress again. Did you decide you like dresses now?
No. I do not like dresses, Mommy.
Ummm, if you don’t like dresses, why are you wearing them?
Because I want to get rid of them.
Get rid of them? What do you mean?
Well, once I wear them, they go in the closet, and I won’t have to wear them again.
It all becomes clear. My little angel would only wear her Vikings jersey and a couple other soccer and such shirts last school year. I finally had to tell her that clean clothes only went back into her closet and into the rotation after she’d worn her other clothes. Instead, the clean clothes were hung on the rack over the washing machine.
Someone thinks too much.
Of course, she hasn’t realized that come Tuesday she’ll only be wearing her uniform, so dress or not becomes a non-issue. Shhhhhh!
