All the kids pitching in to help clean up the kitchen.
A few things I want to remember about this glimpse in time.
* Avery discovered this fall dress and wanted to wear it today. Since we didn't go anywhere, I let her. These days, she really loves leggings, and wears them almost every day. Dresses are surprisingly rare.
* Ansley wears shorts and t-shirts almost every day. She claims she is too hot to wear jeans. I ask her to wear jeans or pants when we go somewhere, but she almost always wears a short sleeve shirt with it, and is never really happy about it. (Can you imagine the comments from strangers if I took my daughter in shorts in 15 degree weather?!) It kinda drives me crazy because she has so many cute clothes she won't wear. I'm wondering if maybe I should mention how hot natured she is at her next check-up. It doesn't seem normal for a tween!
* Then there's Christian. He wants to wear sweatpants every day, since his two favorite pairs of pants have holes in the knees. Jeans are uncomfortable, he says. So sweatpants it is. I ask him to wear jeans when we go somewhere too, but it isn't well received.
I'm ready for spring. Wardrobes should be easier, and less maintenance, by then.
Does anyone else have these silly problems? I feel like it's probably just a season, but some days it drives me crazy that I have a girl in a fall dress, a boy who always wears sweatpants and an 11 year old who only wears shorts all winter.
But I am thankful that they are cleaning my kitchen, no matter what they are wearing.
