A Different Kind of Sock

The micro dude has taken to giving his firm opinion about his clothing. Do you see the socks on the left? They are well worn and developing holes, which led to the recent purchase of the socks on the right.

You might think that this is no big deal, but then you would be wrong. I've tried every morning for a week to get him to wear some of the new socks.

Buster: DIFF'RENT SOCKS!

And he will not be swayed until I pull out a pair of the old ones. I haven't figured out why he doesn't like these socks, but sooner or later one of us will crack. No bets on who that will be.

He also tells me that he wants to wear FUZ-ZEE PANTS when I try to put other pants on him. Fortunately, he has four pairs of fuzzy (super soft microfleece) pants, and I can't really point fingers since I am usually wearing pants of that exact same material.

May be you can start out by saying "Your socks has found a new friend". Put one old sock for his left feet and one new sock for his right one, then ask the socks to introduce each other as new friends.

My toddler isn't here yet, but I remember when my daughter started complaining about my clothing choices. It was sort of sad, really, to not be able to choose outfits I liked.

Good luck in the sock wars!

Andrew has always been very opinionated on his pants ("No I want to wear soft pants!") and still is. Thank goodness they make jersey and fleece lined khakis and jeans nowadays!

My girls are very opinionated about what they wear, to the point that it's sometimes maddening. I'm somewhat relieved to hear it's not just a girl thing!

Bob has a cool idea! Wonder if that would work?

So funny--there was a point in time when my daughter refused to wear anything other than leggings. All of the jeans I had bought were never ever worn. Nowadays, it's nothing but jeans. Times change!

Fuz-ee pants. So cute! That's such a toddler thing, huh, when the kids want the same everything day in and day out....
