This is probably her favorite dress. Let’s say it’s her favorite non-pyjama dress or, perhaps, her favorite dress that actually belongs to her. I don’t always let her wear it. I try to push it to the back of the closet sometimes… especially on school days but school’s out for Avery so pretty much everything is fair game.
We went through this with Chase too. The whole needing to wear a dress and fancy shoes thing and then trying to climb stuff. It wasn’t until just this year that Chase would agree that running shoes were probably her best bet for heavy duty fun. These ruffles don’t seem to slow her down however and, even though I was wearing perfectly acceptable footwear, I’m the one with aching feet. And nobody even cares. Not even a little bit.
