When Kids Dress Themselves
Last week I saw this picture of cup of jo’s son that she posted on instagram and it made me chuckle. A few times. I realized how much I love it when kids dress themselves. I mean the things they put together. Here, her son has on leggings, with a mismatched top (you can see the blue dinosaurs that are not on the pants peeking from the top of his jacket), a raincoat and goggles! I mean, the goggles really set the whole outfit off.
I wanted to keep the chuckles going and see more kids who had dressed themselves. After a quick google search, I found there is a whole instagram page / website dedicated to this very topic, @whenchildrendressthemselves
this little guy is not dressed crazy at all but here we go with the goggles again, lol
I know there is a time and place but I just love how kids express themselves with their clothing choices. I don’t recall, or have any pictures, suggesting that I had such creative licenses when I was a toddler. Although my husband might beg to differ when I where something now that he might think is too colorful or doesn’t match. I don’t know how I will be when I have my own kids but I’d like to think since seeing other kids dressing themselves brings me a little joy, I might let my kid do it do.
