Maybe I need Bad Hair Dad‘s help with this one.
My daughter loves to wear dresses. I’ve got no problem with her loving dresses. Afterall, she’s like the cutest thing I’ve ever seen when she wears her dresses. And she’s got lots of nice ones.
The problem is, she has a ton of shirts and shorts sitting in her drawers untouched.
I try to steer her toward the shorts and tees every day. She heads right for the dresses.
I asked her why she like dresses so much. The answer should have been obvious — “because”.
I’ve got several theories. I don’t think it has to do (so much) with her being “girly” or because all the Princesses wear dresses (even though she asks us, “Cinderella wears pants?”, “Yep. Cinderella wears pants sometimes.”).
I think it has to do with one of the following, or some combination: (a) ease of getting dressed, (b) ease of going Potty, (c) feeling cooler, (d) feeling less restricted.
Damn, I am starting to think maybe I should wear a dress.
Anyhow, if anyone needs to un-used 3T shorts and shirts, let me know…
