It's All About The Outfit

With Whitney, it’s all about the outfit.  When she started her cheer leading class, she insisted on wearing her only cheer outfit, an Arizona Cardinal’s cheer leader dress that was 2 sizes too small.  There was no talking her out of it.  Then today, we went to Schnepf farm.  She asked me for some farm clothes.  I told her that we don’t have any farm clothes.  How about some jeans?  After I got her dressed, I went to get ready to go.  I come back in and she has black winter boots, a pink bandana around her neck with a straw hat that she found in her costume box.  With Austin, my first born, I would have never let him leave the house with a costume on, but now, I guess I’m too old and tired to fight Whitney on this.  She has become an independent girl who knows what she wants to wear.  Even though her outfits sometimes make me cringe, she still makes me smile.


  1. I am so excited that she put all of those concepts together on her own!!! She is really growing up and I wish I were there to see all her progress!
