My girls have their back to school outfits already figured out. They “modeled” them for me the other night. Granted, on the first day of school they are likely to change their mind. I’m hoping one of my girls opts to not wear her new suede boots to school on Sept 6. Too soon for suede is what I’m thinking…..
Yes, I admit it, I am still one of those moms that likes to lay out their clothes in tidy little piles the night before. Please, this is not so bad, I used to lay out their clothes for the whole week the Sunday before! I have no clue why I continue to do this considering they rarely wear what I lay out (which I find terribly annoying).
This problem dates back to my earlier blog discussions about my quest to be insanely organized all the time. I am debating, for this school year, to drop this from my ‘to-do’ list. After all, they are old enough to pick out their own clothes. Of course, the outfits must be ‘mom approved’ before they walk out the door.
My quest for organization in the morning is critical because I believe it sets the tone for the day. I suspect if you have girls you can relate. If we have what I call “clothing chaos” in the morning, this is soon followed by tears and then next thing I know the whole house is in an uproar. Since I am a firm believer in the “law of attraction” this seems to trickle down into that child having a bad day. Avoidance of ‘clothing chaos’ is a must have in my house and seems hard to avoid with 3 daughters despite the fact I do my best to ensure they each have the style of clothes they love. I can prove that by the glaringly big hole in my wallet (lol).
This is your queue to feed me some ideas.
Many thanks xoxo
