My Son is Dressing Himself Now… ugh

jeans   Independence is a great thing.  Growing up and ‘being a big boy’ is a great thing.  

There is a down-side to this however: little ‘big boys’ don’t know fashion, let alone what matches… and more importantly- Completely Don’t Care.

This is why you should never wrinkle your brow or frown when you see a little guy in what looks like ‘thrown together’ outfits… it’s not that their mother didn’t look to see what they put on,

It’s that she secretly cringed at the outfit, but hid her initial response because her son was so proud of himself for actually getting clothes out of his closet and drawers by himself, therefor, ‘picking’ an outfit, and fastened buttons and zipped zippers and got dressed- socks and all.

Case In Point:  

Saturday Night Dinner Out-

My son wore:

Blue sweatpants, his Phineas and Ferb t-shirt, and a Blue Blazer.


Yep, sweatpants and a blazer…

But that’s what he picked out, put on, and wanted to wear,

And he’s a big boy now,

So that’s what we went with.

  2. I LOVE the blazer. That is a true sign of a future trendsetter. Or a future Alex P. Keaton… Either way – you can’t go wrong. Adorable!

  4. I see it more often in little girls — princess gowns in the supermarkets or other obvious self-picked outfits. It’s always cute to see, and even a non-parent like myself knows it’s not worth a fight to make sure your kid matches!

    Anyway, many grown men don’t know how to dress themselves, either :)
