We have often been told that children as they grow older need to begin making decisions for themselves. One of those areas of decision making is dress. We believe Molly has grown enough to make wise decisions concerning her dress so this morning she was able to dress herself. Apparently she still needs her mother’s help . . . Actually, this was the first day of Spirit week at school and she had to clash. This particular outfit is her father’s fault, while the socks and hair are due to her mother’s genius. We truly do love this girl, but we do look forward to the times that we can embarrass her. She was not as excited to look this way as we were to dress her up this way. She was fine as soon as Linda picked up the other girls for school and they looked as bizarre.
I think the real fun comes when one of us picks her up from the bus at Meijer’s this afternoon and then have the joy of telling the girls that we have a few things we need to pick up before we go home. I’m sure they would love walking around Meijers looking like this. In all reality, I wouldn’t want to be seen walking around Meijers with them looking like this.
