What To Wear

There is something I need those who take care of GK during the day to know. I need them to know that I dress her every day and that I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm okay with not putting stripes and circles, or whatever, together, but colors baffle me.

There's also the fact, though, that she's two, and I don't think it really matters what she wears as long as she's warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

I usually try to warn Kristy when I'm really uncertain about a wardrobe because she is the one who picks GK up in the afternoon and I don't want her to be too surprised by what she might see there. Today, though, I didn't think to tell Kristy because I thought I did okay. I put a brown shirt with purple hearts (thank you, Chloe) and blue pants on her. I found out this evening that this wasn't a good idea.

It's not so much that I stand there and study the choices before deciding on what would look good on her; it's mostly that I have three other kids and they all have to eat and get dressed and have lunches made for them, so that I'm lucky, really, to get a pair of pants and shirt on her and not two shirts or no pants.

So I'm trying, just not very hard because, like I said, she's two.

I should also focus more on her hair, too, probably, but that's a problem for a different day.

The pants are periwinkle. Just so you know.

I always thought those hearts were pink.

She's two & she is cute---you could put her in a suit made of doghair and get away with it. As long as her hair is brushed, yr good.

Those women are crazy. As a man, I submit that the aforementioned outfit is perfectly acceptable, and that matching is highly overrated. You go, BD! Do your dang thang!

The fourth child doesn't know matching from not matching - they take what they can get! They far outshine their older sibs in personality - so the outfit doesn't have to be perfect!

Those hearts are pink, Steph. The shoes have the purple hearts.
