2 year old drama queen?
Yesterday on a small shopping trip I was looking for some new summer pjs for Allie and a few pairs of big-girl undies for her. After completing her potty training, she's been wearing the padded kind just in case of an accident. Since there hasn't been any accidents for the last ... well, actually almost ever (not to brag :)) I decided to graduate her into the real girl underwear. And how big was my surprise when I was shopping at the Children's Place yesterday and couldn't find anything age appropriate for my 2 year old! I mean I am aware of this big Victoria's Secret new line inappropriate for middle school girls and the conflict around it, I didn't think I would face a similar problem with a toddler. Of course, when I say "inappropriate" for toddlers I'm not referring to the same issue that the new Victoria's Secret line was provoking, but I just couldn't find anything that I'd like to see Allie in! What do you think of a set of toddler panties with the words "shopping time"and a Barbie type girl printed in them? Or "new shoes!" and other stuff that grown women might care about but not 2 year olds. Where are the undies with flowers or stars or some Sesame Street character or something in them? Same with pjs, the only one of the right size had 'drama queen' written across the top. Do I wanna teach my daughter that it's cool to be a drama queen? I know she can't read but she likes to know what her clothes says or what's printed on it. So should I be telling her "oh it says drama queen on it, isn't it cute?" So anyway, I'm on a mission to find an appropriate pajamas this week... Thank you for listening to my frustrations, I needed to dish it out :)
