Since this past week pictures of my outfits would consist mainly of sweaty gym clothes accessorized with a lovely pink neck and chest rash, I decided to spare all of you. Instead, I thought it would be more interesting to share a typical outfit that the Little Ballerina wears to school.
Here's LB dressed and ready for school. But first she needs to serenade us with a little ditty on BSD's ukulele.
Shirt - Gap Kids
Jeans - TJ Maxx
Headband - Target
Nothing runway worthy. Just basic kid clothing (or closing, as LB calls it). But let's take a little closer look...
Notice anything odd about her shirt?
If you said it looks like it has a strange accent edging you would be correct. That's because she has another shirt on underneath the cute Gap Kids butterfly tee. Now I know layering is all the rage. You may be thinking, "Wow! She's so fashion-forward for a 6 year old!"
Well...think again. She has that other shirt on underneath because she does not want to wear the cute butterfly tee. The one I had her try on in the store. The one she said she liked. The one she promised she would wear if I bought it.
So this is her M.O. - I tell Mommy I'll wear the shirt when she asks me in the morning. When she leaves the room and I get dressed, I'll put on the shirt I want to wear underneath. I'll get to school and take off the butterfly tee and shove it in my backpack.
The little stinker AFTER school.
I know I'm in for a bumpy ride with this child. It's been like this for six years. Why should the next 12 be any different? If she's already pulling this at six, I can only imagine what it will be like during the teen years.
My seat belt is securely fastened. And my fridge is stocked with Corona. Crap, I better put a lock on there. I'm sure she'll be raiding my stash by 3rd grade!
