Laws of Children's Clothing

1. If you want the weather to warm back up, just complete the seasonal clothing switch.

2. If you allow a young boy to choose his own clothes, with or without the assistance of his father, the results will be as follows:
a. If the day's plans are staying at home or playing in the mud with his cousins, the clothing selected will be a nice sweater and a pair of corduroy slacks.
b. If the day's plans are church or going to town, the clothing selected will be a pair of ripped jeans and an old hoodie.

Yes, that is so true. And it applies to girls too. I've had a conversation at least twice with my daughter as to why she can't wear her old jeans and 'work' (stained) t-shirt to church.

Neither D2 nor I ever make that last mistake...

It's uncanny, isn't it?

I remember when Stuart was old enough to know the difference between church clothes and play clothes: the first clothes he found were church clothes, so he casually remarked that he "wanted to play church today." Nice try. Go LOOK for appropriate clothes, please.
