Choose Your Battles

This morning Ryan came downstairs wearing this:



Oh, yeah...my son, the fashion guru.  I very nicely told him that his shirt and shorts didn't quite match, and after a brief but heated discussion he went upstairs to "start over" as he called it.

This is what he came down in the second time...


wait for it....



wait for it.....






"Hmmm....much better," I said.  "Maybe you would be a little cooler if you untucked your shirt and unbuttoned the top button."

"No, Mommy.  I look very handsome."

"Okay."

Sometimes you just have to choose your battles.

  3. my boys could rival Ryan! Although their favorite combination is bright, obnoxious tye-dye and plaid. It can be blinding. Luckily they don't put up too much of a fuss when I tell them to change :)

  6. Awesome! Aren't kids great? I get in trouble with my 3 y/o daughter if I don't pick a dress that "twirls".

  7. Good call. Looks like a typical morning at my house. My 8 yo daughter comes up with some crazy outfits, but a fight over mismatched clothes isn't worth it. She is happy.

  9. My daughter comes up with the greatest things to wear. I decided, who am I to say what looks good together. Maybe someday she will be a designer...don't want to crush her dreams
