Dressing


I love this. I saw it on an image hosting site so I can't credit the artist but I figured it was something we could all relate to (either from the perspective of the mom or the perspective of the alligator child or maybe even both).

In mostly unrelated news, I solved little kid's no underwear problem. While helping him zip his jeans one day, I casually pointed out how easy it would be to accidentally zip your penis into a zipper. And he's willingly worn underwear every single day since.

Of course, I had to point out the potential of zipper injury quietly, so as not to give Big Kid more ammunition for his "Zippers are unnecessary" theory.

Love the picture! I remember going to the grocery store with princesses and spiderman! I think we're finally past that point.

DH actually did zip himself one time when he was a teenager. VERY PAINFUL from the story I've been told lol.

So far I've been lucky. The little one hasn't shown any interest in dressing up, except in his sister's dress up shoes (not sure what that is about), and my older one is a little fashionista and always has to look just right.

They really do grow out of it - my 13 year old who had a number of other identities, is almost normal now (discounting his strange political leanings where he is going to live in a trailer driving from Walmart lot to Walmart lot so he doesn't have to pay taxes). Kerry

Oh lord I have a dresser-upper. Luckily she hasn't tried to leave the house dressed up yet but she'd live in her Tiana dress if I'd let her.

She's also a fashionista and her shoes and her bows and her ensemble all must match perfectly. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. :)

Yep my 3 YO learned his lesson in this department-came to me in the middle of the night to zip his jammies up after going potty, I (in my sleepy stuper) nicked his frank with the zipper. He always wears undies now!

My oldest caught himself in his zipper and refused to zip his pants for a long time and when I would insist on zipping them he would make himself concave so that his penis would be as far away from the zipper as possible.
