Like Father, Like Daughter

She has refused to wear pants or shorts for the past year. Then today, "Mommy, I don't want to wear a skirt, I want shorts. I like shorts now!" I cut off a pair of jeans from winter, so she could wear shorts. I bought no shorts this year because last year she wouldn't wear them!

When I was dating her dad, he wrote me a letter outlining a few things I should know about him. He wrote that he is always contradicting himself.

I should've known what I was in for.
I do now.

I can relate to that! The contradicting part anyway...my Hubby wears shorts in the house all year, winter too. He owns no track pants or leisure pants of any kind - only shorts.

I guess you are going shopping then...by now I bet the summer stuff is all on sale!

Little shorts under the skirts/dresses. My preschool students do that all the time and it looks so cute plus helps with the "put your dress down". Those little girls love their dress/skirts. Maybe you should be reading one of those Mother/Daughter relationship books. (Remember, she could be twins, and that would be great, too.)

p.s. I saw a flyer from Slumberland with short shelves with baskets. Just made me think of you.

Kids are SO contradictory, always. Although mine have been pretty casual about what they want to wear, thank goodness. I'm tired enough in the mornings.

I'm doomed to have a skirt girl. Alaina will wear shorts . . . but she absolutely loves to wear tights. Where on earth did she get that?

LOL! Doesn't that just figure - you buy, or don't buy, something and then their taste changes!

My daughter swore she hated carrots and would never eat them. Until we had dinner at a friend's house. When the hostess asked her if she liked carrots, she promptly said that she did, and even ate them! Same thing with tacos. She told me for years that she didn't like tacos, then all of sudden she likes them. Kids, go figure!
