Mommy, It's Sooo Pretty

I absolutely refuse to have one more battle over what my daughter will wear. 

We've gone through many phases over the past four years.  It started with her refusal to wear anything that wasn't pink.  This was not too terribly difficult, due to the fact that I found out while I was carrying her that she would be a girl.  My family rushed out to buy anything they could find with ruffles, ribbons, and bows, most of which were pink.

Then, we moved on to only wearing dresses.  It couldn't be just any dress either, it had to be the three year old definition of "beautiful", which varied from day to day.  Often our daily outfits included some type of fake hair.  For a while, we wore a ratty Ariel wig everywhere we went.  Of course, the old lady at the grocery store would comment on how beautiful she looked in her Halloween costume, to which my daughter would indignantly reply, "This is NOT a costume!"

Now, we have an issue with wearing anything that we haven't specifically chosen ourselves.  Mommy doesn't always keep up with the laundry, so many days we wear a pajama top with a ball gown skirt, winter tights under last year's favorite summer dress (that she has found in the mess of clothing on her closet floor), and my favorite...bathing suit as underwear.

Let it be, I say.
