The Clothing Battle

I need to decide how to best approach this. My soon to be 16..I mean 6 year old has very strong oppinions on fashion. Now that she in in school I want her to look decent during the week. So every night we have our battle. She wants to wear pants and long sleeves (when it is 90 degrees) with flip flops. Mind you nothing matches. I want her to wear a nice capri outfit. She conceeds on the capris but insists on a shirt that doesn't fit anymore (or has a huge stain on it). So I suggest skorts and a similar shirt to the one that has a stain...

Rinse and repeat at least 3 more times, add tears and screaming with her finally stating, "FINE!! I WILL JUST WEAR THIS, ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?" as she holds up the first outfit I suggested.

I don't have the strength to do this everynight. Should I just let her wear whatever and live with the consequences? That is just so hard, I don't want her walking out of the house in something completly inappropriate. We go through the flipside of this on the weekends. Then when we are just bumming around the house she comes out of her room wearing an outfit that is dressier (perfect for school) and refuses to put on gym shorts and a t-shirt.

What am I to do? How many more years of this do I have?

First Day of School

We survived our first day of Kindergarten. ONE loved it. She can't remember her teacher's name or any of her classmates but she told me with enthusiasm that she gets to go back tomorrow. I need to post some pictures, but the computer I am on doesn't have a memory card reader so it won't get done right now. I promise to post them as soon as I can though.

I didn't cry at all. I may have wanted to a bit but I held off. I didn't want to ruin it for her or suffer the teasing I would have gotten from my husband. We didn't stay for the "boo hoo breakfast". It didn't sound like something I wanted to do. I mean I know my kid is the best but I don't want to hear others bemoaning the fact that they will miss theirs, that is what blogs are for.

My new life

It is nice to see my life finally moving forward. For over a year I felt as if I was treading water and now I can continue my life. Now the decision is mine as to where it should take me.

The new job is great! I am enjoying what I do. I am still trying to figure it all out but that is what makes it fun. I do miss the girls. TWO especially. I can tell she misses me too. She still will not sleep at daycare. So even when she is at home with me in the evening she is crabby and her bedtime has moved up an hour. I am hoping that she gets over it and our schedules can return to normal but with school starting this week for ONE I am not sure if I can even define normal. I want to carve out time to blog more but I have a feeling it will remain on the back burner until my husband's busy time of year returns late this fall. So I appologize for anyone who is still reading this, I promise, come November I will show up more often with more valid content.
