Fashionistas they are not

I’ve been letting the boys pick out there clothes each morning more out of laziness than an effort to foster a sense of creativity and freedom but all of that too. The boys seem to put together outfits based on criteria of how easy it is to pull out of the drawer instead of how these items go together from a fashion sense. It drives Beautiful crazy, and I have to admit that is a big part of the fun. She says it’s fine if we stay around the house but I take the boys out looking like they do in the picture to the right. When people comment I tell them I’m a stay at home dad and they nod knowingly. That explains it, dad dressed them. I’m cool with that. What the others, Beautiful included, don’t see is how fired up Segundo is to put on two different rain boots with his Timbers scarf. He’s so proud of his choices and thinks that he looks great. When we are out other kids agree, they love the crazy outfits Segundo puts together even as their parents openly judge me. Messing with my wife and others is definitely one of the perks of being a stay at home dad.

    Sometimes Nat comes over or I go over there and look at her and ask “Did you dress yourself today?” She is so proud of her outfit it makes me happy. Keep up the good work! (example: a faux fur vest, a sundress, pink sparkly converse = adorable)

    I remember when my kids were young and I bought them beautiful little outfits that went together so well and when I went to work early and left them with their dad to get ready, I would come to find them in the most hideous combinations !!! They loved those days though, when Mummy didn’t lay out their clothes…..right down to their underwear !!!
