Fashion Faux Pas - I Want Your Opinion
Ok moms - I want to hear your opinion. I know there are plenty of mothers out there reading my blog - must I name names???? (Dena, Lucy - with my new format you can now comment). ANYWAYS - I believe that when children get to be the age that Mattea is, she should have the freedom to dress however she would like. She actually has been doing it for quite some time. She knows there are boundaries (ie not wearing pajamas in public - although she has tried). We have also worked on coordinating colors, styles, etc. I want her to be able to make decisions in her life and feel autonomous in those decisions. With that being said, what the heck do you do when she makes this kind of decision (see above). As a mom do you step in and intercede or simply stand back and chuckle and hope that she walks a few steps behind when you head out in public???? For the record, those are leopard pants!!!
