My Crazy Kids
But they are killing me with the list of stuff they want. I mean I fight against all things princess on a daily basis and the ONE thing Aston wants and won’t stop talking about is this freakin ugly ass pink dress she saw in a toy store at our mall. She calls it her Birthday dress and tells every one who asks that’s what she wants for Christmas. I’m dying inside. Meanwhile, I spent 2 months putting together this awesome dress up box filled with non toxic materials…sewing crowns and making wands. And she wants this hideous dress. I give up.
AND they are insistent on dressing themselves now, which you also know just tears my heart out because sometimes they look insane. All of a sudden it’s all about summer dresses and tights…who does that????? I fight to make them wear a sweater! Thanks GOD I have control over shoes at least. I don’t care if they wear their awesome Nike high tops with everything…at least they’re cool. I let them pick out shoes ONCE…ONCE. They picked Camouflage pink sneakers. Let’s just say I had tears falling and Ken had to convince me to let them have them. They are so ugly it hurts. But I let them wear them and I think Sloan noticed I didn’t like them, because she asked me if I liked them, and I said no. So then for 2 weeks she tortured me by waving them in front of my face every time she got dressed. But lately I haven’t seen them so I’m thinking we’re past that phase now. I know it’s only going to get worse but I’m fighting man, I’m really fighting.
