Do you like the fact that the skull shoes are paired with brown camo socks? Daddy dressed him today. He was even in his "iPood" t-shirt.
I swear. when DH dresses DD it sometimes seems like he TRIES to make her look stupid. Like, we have a closet full of Carter's outfits- you know, most of their clothes come in sets. But when he dresses her, he'll totally take thing that don't even come close to matching, never mind actually being a set. I don't understand why it's so hard. Also, he feels the need to impose his own clothing issues on her- mainly he can't wear clothes that actually fit him, but insists on things that are 1-2 sizes too big. So she always looks like a sloppy, street kid or something when he dresses her! Sorry, not saying your kid looks that way- but, apparently I needed to get that out on the topic of DH's dressing kids...
Glad to hear it's not just in this house. My husband refuses to put DS in anything that seems remotely girly to him. I had Aiden in a plaid jumper last week and DH made me change his clothes before he'd take DS out to Home Depot with him. Because to him the jumper looked like a dress.
Hahaha...DH's track record is mixed on dressing DD, but he's pretty laid back about it. I'm the one who finds excuses to change her if I don't think her outfit is cute enough. Of course I often think outfits that look like she dressed herself are cute, so there's probably some room for criticism on my dressing skills too
I fold all the sets and when I put them in the cupboard in their piles (shorts, shirts etc) I line them up so if a set has the shirt on the top of the pile the corresponding shorts are on the top of the pile as well. Not that hubby ever dresses DS anyway.
Wow, that's seriously organized Wendy! I just throw Aiden's clothes into his drawers. I try to put all shirts in one drawer, all PJs in another, etc, but DS tends to rearrange them all. Heck, I haven't even bothered to fold any of his clothes after washing them because Aiden is just going to drag them all out. lol
Woah! I'm somewhere in between. I do fold stuff in half, and keep similar things (PJs, shirts, pants, etc) in the same area of the drawers, but for one thing DD doesn't even own enough matched sets of anything to even invent a system about it! DD is not allowed in the drawers and they're too heavy for her to open, though, which helps
Haven't done any babywearing yet today, but I'm assuming my afternoon will be filled with it since my in-laws are on their way to stay with us for a week (arriving tonight) and this place is a mess. OK OK, end internet procrastination....
When he was fisrt born everything was on shelves with labels with the size, when we moved I didn't put the labels back up but I should, especially now he stays in a size for so much longer and change them to items of clothing. When he was first born it was basically because the first month we always had someone there so it helped if they dressed him.
I'm pretty good at clothing... I have a lot of stuff hanging up (shirts and dresses), and I have everything else sorted by type of clothing- skirts, pants, shorts, pjs... So the outfits are not necessarily together, I'll give DH that... but still! And we have really crappy furniture- came with the house- DD can get into all of it. Luckily she generally doesn't want to destroy her wardrobe... her diaper shelf is another matter! We routinely have to play the game of lets pick up the wipes and dipes!
No baby-wearing for me recently... I wish I could wear DD more easily though. I think she is going through a tough time emotionally- between a language explosion, and picking up on the fact that things will be changing soon (she and I are leaving for the States in a month, and it's been hugely on my mind!) and then the baby coming in June... plus, we're all pretty stressed out about money right now... I think she's picking up on all of that, and she has been clingy, clingy, clingy. Even at night, the only way she'll fall asleep is either tucked right into my arms laying down (like spooning pretty much), or sitting in my lap. And when she wakes in the middle of the night, it's the same thing- she crawls in and tucks right into me, or tries to lay on top of me. She really seems to need some extra touch right now... but, honestly, the belly is making it very hard. I can hardly stand waistbands, much less a carrier around my midsection. Anyway... so glad that when the baby comes we'll have two Ergos to carry both kids!
