Too much excitement just might kill me!
Monkey wears short shorts! In preference to anything else, apparently.
The weather is starting to cool down here finally, and we’ve had a few mornings that have been a little chilly. As a result, I’ve tried to dress Monkey in long pants to keep his legs warm.
However, after months of wearing nothing but shorts (if that!) long pants now freak him out. As in screaming, writhing, tears and a general sense of ‘why are you trying to kill me with trousers?!’.
Our beloved Babylegs have the same effect. In fact I had to change him out of his long pyjama pants at midnight last night and back into shorts because he was so upset by the feeling of fabric on his ankles that he couldn’t sleep.
I suspect the same thing will happen when the time comes to start wearing long sleeved shirts too.
Somebody please tell me this will be short lived!!
I have no problem with him having a say in what he wears – if he wants to wear mismatched clothes with a purple tutu and a Batman cape, then I’m all for it. But I don’t want the poor kid to freeze in the process!
What do you do when your kid doesn’t want to wear weather appropriate clothing?
