You battle enough on your own as it is. If you are a woman and you have a little girl at home then the two of you can spend hours in front of the wardrobe and mirror trying to figure out what to wear for the day. If you have got a little boy, well, it is easy to suggest that the morning dressing ritual is a lot easier. All the youngster needs is his sneakers, T, and favorite pair of jeans, and there he goes, he is ready to zip off to school.
But not so fast, moms and dads, you see how today’s kids are these days. Nothing but the best styles and designer labels to help them fit in with the rest of the crowd. You can hardly blame them and you can hardly blame the innovative designers. Maybe you need to upscale in the parenting department. Add a little sense of humor to your parenting repertoire and then what with glee as your little toddler tries to button up his own shirt.
Enough with the laughing then. Time to get ready for church. Time to get ready for the next birthday do. Dressing young men up is one thing, but try knotting a tie on him just so. Heck, not even dad is able to get it right on most occasions. Make things easier for the kid, and for you, and give him smart looking kids clip on ties instead. No need to stand about fussing in front of the mirror when the lift is already waiting out in front.
And by the time the kids are out playing in the birthday yard, who is going to know. Who will be able to distinguish between a knot or a clip on?
