This is the second day of letting the girls run amuck in their closet and pick whatever they want to wear, and I think they assembled some kick-butt outfits! Much more interesting than I would have chosen, and the outfits really show their personalities. Ree went first, and chose a Pumpkin Patch shirt that she liked and then spent quite a bit of time flipping through the racks of clothes to find a long-sleeved undershirt with "some boo" (some blue) from Old Navy and a skirt and tights that had the gray she wanted to go with the shirt. Then she ran downstairs to play and Ro danced into the closet. Ro gravitated immediately toward a brand-new ruffly pink Gymboree skirt then tried and rejected a few tops. She finally chose a little Old Navy flowered long-john top and pink striped tights. I have to admit to cringing while Ro was picking the shirts, but once she got the outfit on I actually loved the contrast of the fancy pink skirt and the sporty long-john shirt. Cute. Once downstairs the girls grabbed some shoes that made us all smile and jauntily posed for a pic or two. Hey this is kinda fun! The girls are having a ball, and I think it might turn out to be just the ticket for this control-freak mama. I'm feeling amused and sort of relaxed right now... Ahhhhh. Wonder what they'll pick out tomorrow?
