If there is one thing I have learned about mothering a toddler, it is that not every battle is worth it. The battle in which I give up on 6 days a week (Sundays don't count) is the crazy outfit Grayson chooses to wear outside the house. Toddlers have a crazy fashion sense. Well, at least mine does.
On any given day you can find Grayson wearing snowboots, a men's Steelers hat (no, we aren't Steelers fans), and a truck tshirt. This is his signature look. Okay, fine, sometimes he just prefers a diaper. He will usually be carrying around his weed eater or perhaps even be using a broom as his "blower."
Most recently he has fallen in love with a pair of Crocs that are a size too big. G tells me they are his yard work shoes. Crocs are bad enough, but Grayson makes them even more fashionable by wearing them with socks. It. Is. Awesome.
I'll be honest, this new found opinion on his wardrobe annoyed me at first. He hates his nice church clothes & I mourned the loss of my big boy wearing jon jons regularly.
Then I realized how ridiculous I was acting. Grayson is 2 1/2 and definitely has an opinion. He's getting more independent by the day & part of that means picking out his clothes. It makes me laugh every day to see what clothes we picks out to play in the yard. The best part is that he wears his snow boots, basketball shorts, "ment mixer" shirt, baseball hat, & sunglasses with such pride.
I hope his personality is always this big & I hope he keeps this confidence forever!
