Fashion Advice from Natalie

No, I don't think Natalie will be going into fashion design anytime soon (and if she were to, she wouldn't be getting the genes from me!). However, she does have very pronounced opinions about my wardrobe.

Whenever I put on a jacket, or she realizes that I am wearing a sweatshirt, sweater or some other garment that puts a second layer (well, third, counting the bra) between her and my boobs, she commands me to take it off. "Off. Mommy. Jacket." Mind you, she ONLY nurses before bed and first thing in the morning anymore, so it's completely irrelevant. "Sweater. Off." We have long conversations about when nursing time is - she even freely admits that it is nowhere near a nursing time, but she is undeterred. I don't give in, but it's highly entertaining.

Unfortunately for me, she's learning to zip and unzip pretty well....

  • not related to nursing, quinn has become similarly obsessed! god forbid that we come in the house and do some quick thing before taking our coats off. she starts to get really stressed because apparently, that's not.how.you.do.things!

    and cardigan type sweaters and this zippered hoodie thing that i wear are completely unacceptable at times. she'll tug at them, saying something like "coat off." and so we don't freeze to death, we're trying to explain the difference between coats you take off and the ones you keep wearing in the house.....

  • Hmmm... I hadn't thought about it from that angle. Natalie definitely likes things to be done properly (see earlier post about music out of order!) but for her the jacket thing only applies to ME, not Cait or anyone else.

  • Sometimes I think Sanna is Mr. Rogers reincarntated. She comes in and takes off her shoes and her coat/jacket/sweater. Of course she doesn't put on slippers and a zippered sweater, so maybe she is only half of him.
