My daughter loves clothes. Sj's been opinionated about what she wants to wear for a couple of years now. Hands down, she probably changes her outfit about five times in any given day. I believe I am making progress in training her to put the not even close to dirty clothes back into her dresser, helping cut down on unnecessary laundering of clean clothes. Although her laundry pile still towers over ours. Maybe we should call it a work in progress.
On top of her love of changing her clothes on a whim, we also went through an inappropriate for the weather phase. Take for example a swim suit, winter boots, and snow falling out the window. Fine when we are inside, but not okay when I have to go to the store. I have resorted to putting her outside on the porch to see if she could fair in her summery outfits mid-winter, typically she has a change of heart. As of late, with our 90 degree weather, she has insisted on wearing her jeans to school. She has a dresser full of skirts and summery dresses, but of course jeans and a long sleeve t-shirt, just perfect.
Maybe about once a week, Sj allows me to provide some guidance over her clothing selections for school. Last week, we had completely bizarre weather, with 50 degree days following a heat wave that was three weeks long. So I anticipated some clothing choices that wouldn't fit the conditions outside.
But one week into school, I am already dreading afternoon kindergarten. This is what she came up with on Friday (the 50 degree day). Luckily we didn't have a bathroom episode in between outfit changes to throw us off track even more.
After pajamas, outfit number one:
Nah, wasn't feeling that one, maybe this warm weather outfit will do:
Finally, with a little encouragement from mom (I didn't have to put her outside!), a face washing, and hair brushing, it was time to go:
Like clockwork, she walks in the door after school and completely disrobes. That my friends I saved you from witnessing.
If you happen to have an outfit changing fanatic in your house, I recommend pushing for morning kindergarten. That way you can get your little one out the door with out having to go through major outfit changes before school starts!
