Bethany is such a finicky dresser. She usually has a preference on a top or pants to wear. She will request specific shirts (Elmo, snowman, cat, etc.) . She also wants to have input as to which pair of pants she is to wear.
Now...as the weather changes she had issues transitioning to short sleeve shirts. "Sleeeevvveeess" she proclaims as she tugs on her miniature sleeves, longing to have them grow all of the sudden. When it is time for transition to shorts, she was very unhappy with the concept of her legs being exposed. I then resort to the line, "Well, Bethany all of the other kids at Jan's will be wearing shorts." Seriously...did I just use that line. Do you think she'll be allowed to use that line on us in 12 years..."But Mom, all my friends get to wear tutus to school." Yeah...not happening. However, the use of the line did work on Bethany to put on shorts the other day. And finally today, she was okay with having a dress on. She has been fighting dress for quite a while. She didn't even wear her Easter dress. She had a gigantic meltdown when I tried to put tights on her instead of her coveted pants. I decided that really is there a major significant meaning behind the Easter dress....I am pretty sure the resurrection of Christ could be equally celebrated with Easter khaki's. I even got her to wear her sandals today without Socks! Imagine that. No socks! That is a major accomplishment!!!! (side note: the sandals did results in a slight owie...but we'll just ignore that fact!)
Since Bethany has been more open to other clothing options, maybe our finicky days are behind us...but I (for one) won't be holding my breath!
