Something that I have learned about young kids is that anything can become a fight. It can be totally exhausting to spend the day getting a toddler or preschooler to just do what you need them to do. Getting my daughter dressed and out of the house can take over an hour of telling, convincing, giving up and trying again.
This is why I’ve started letting her choose her own outfits. I don’t care what she wears as long as she’s wearing something.
Turns out my daughter’s taste is pretty awesome.
Stripes, floral and leopard print all in one outfit? Absolutely. A dress over a skirt? Yes. Two different socks? Of course. Two different shoes? I wouldn’t have it any other way.
She’s always proud of herself when she’s all put together, and she loves having me take pictures of her outfits.
The best part? When she’s a teenager looking back and asking me how I could dress her this way, I have the perfect answer.
