I'm not even going to bother making TLo any more t-shirts, because I'm pretty sure as soon as school is out (in exactly one month), she will downright refuse to put anything on her body that has a sleeve. Actually, I correct that: she did allow that a cap sleeve (which she didn't know the word for but, based on her highly dramatic pantomime, very clearly understood the definition of) was an acceptable form of sleevage. But nothing else will make the cut.
Because TLo has become obsessed with summer dresses. Sundresses, to be exact. She is not interested in having any part of her shoulders or back covered. With one notable exception:
Today (for the third time in a row) she has insisted that she wear her white cardigan with only the top button done. Why, you ask? "Because it looks the most cute that way, Mom." Clearly the unspoken end of that sentence was "you fashionless cretin". (This fashionista attitude is backed up by eHow.com's "How To Look Stylish In A Cardigan" article, in which item number 4 is: "Experiment with buttoning just the top button or two for a casual, fashion forward look." Although taking fashion advice not only from eHow.com, but from a medical doctor as well, does somewhat make me question the expertise factor.)
I've decided for my own self-preservation to not tell TLo about the existence of sweater clips.
