Losing the Battle but Winning the War?

Millie, Badly Drawn Mum

From the earliest possible age Evie has wanted to choose what to wear. I relented early on to encourage her independence. Sadly, but not unexpectedly, I haven’t been able to regain the ground. And it’s SUCH a shame because she has so many lovely, pretty dresses and tops. But they never get touched. 6 months ago she wouldn’t wear anything with sleeves, which in February led to many a meltdown.

This year, Evie’s Spring / Summer collection comprises of ‘tripling’ – wearing three t-shirts on top of each other. (Her favourite is a gaudy yellow with an elephant on it.). She combines a denim skirt with odd socks and completes the look with odd shoes. Yes. Odd shoes.

We get funny looks in the street of course; other Mums smiling in sympathy, throwing me a look that says “You lost that battle then...” But I don’t mind. As long as Evie’s happy. And she really is. As long as her dress sense improves as she gets older...
