If you read my blog, you probably know by now that I’m a mom of 3 girls. And they are all girly girls for the most part- love the color pink, princesses, dolls, ballet… you get the picture. They love to play dress up and put together their own outfits and it seems that they are constantly changing their clothes throughout the day.
They’ll be in one outfit in the morning and by mid-morning or afternoon they have a new one on, and then another outfit by evening time. Sometimes it’s dress up clothes and sometimes it’s an entire outfit change for the day- new top and bottom (usually a skirt)- and whatever they had on previously winds up on their bedroom floor.
My oldest doesn’t do this as much since she’s in school full time and my four year old has had to calm down somewhat since she started preschool this Fall. I actually started this post six months ago though, when both my youngest two were in full force with their antics (hence all the pictures), and it’s been in my draft folder ever since.
The other night however I was watching ET (Entertainment Tonight), and they had a segment with the cast from NCIS: Los Angeles and their real-life moms. They were interviewing the cast members- LL Cool J, Chris O’Donnell, Daniela Ruah and Eric Christian Olsen on set of the show, along with their real-life moms who were going to be appearing as guests in an episode.
When they showed Chris O’Donnell and his mom she said something along the lines of she always knew he’d do something big and it didn’t surprise her that Chris became an actor because when he was a kid he always changed his outfits a lot, ie. wardrobe change.
It reminded me of my girls and got me thinking about this post again. I know changing outfits throughout the day is something my kids do, and I always wondered whether it was just a girl thing or if perhaps all toddlers (girls and boys) go through it.
What do you think- did your toddlers (boy or girl) go through the phase of changing their clothes all the time?
Unfortunately for me, I also have the feeling that with my girls it probably won’t be limited to just the toddler stage either. It will most likely be a teenager stage as well!
On another note, I’ve realized I need a new cell phone… one that takes better pictures! All the photos in this post were taken with my cell phone camera so I apologize for the poor quality. :(
