OK, Moms, I have a question.
My daughters like to pick out their own clothes in the morning. They have VERY strong opinions on this subject. Seriously, strong opinions. So strong that on most mornings I no longer bother to fight about it and my girls go to school with diagonal striped skirts with shirts with stars in a completely different color pallet.
I don't have the energy to deal with the clothing issue now that BOTH girls are fighting me on this.
So... do I fight this, do I put my foot down or do I let them control this piece of their lives?
They feel pretty and isn't that more important than my perception of what is appropriate or am I feeding into a cycle that will continue to let them choose battles with me... and win?
There isn't a lot we give into in terms of behavior and politeness, my kids are very polite. They are respectful, they are loving and fun.
Oh, also, Molly doesn't let us brush her hair, any thoughts on that?
