Matching


I'm a matcher... I like my dishes to match, I like to match the jars of what I'm canning and even the lids. I like my shelves to match, spice containers, towels, everything.
You name it, I want it to match.
So this...

is hard for me.

The upside is that she is adorable:) I know kids need to assert their independance. I don't want her to not have confidence because I didn't like the purple plaid skirt with the striped rainbow shirt and t-shirt over. But, I kringe a little when she comes down the stairs in an outfit like this and it takes all I have to say, "I love your outfit! Nice job picking your own clothes!" What's wrong with the train of thought... If you like the skirt and you like the shirt, then wear them together! I love 4 year olds:) Never mind that I bought an entire line from Gymbore (something I NEVER do but it was on a killer sale) and she refuses to wear 75% of it. Kids. Oh well, hopefully Chloe will be willing to wear it. Lesson learned, don't go shopping without your 4 year old. She needs to pick out her own clothes... Well, at least she does if she's Ellorie.

I agree I think the skirt should come off and hopefully she forget to wear knickers
