My 2 Year Olds Sense of Style!
Socks, Mommy, Want Socks! This kid loves socks! It doesn’t matter if it’s 105 degrees outside! It doesn’t matter if he is wearing sandals. It doesn’t matter if the socks are yellow (why do we even own yellow socks?) and don’t match a thing he is wearing! HE WANTS SOCKS! Really, he cracks me up. Out of the blue, he will walk over to his sock drawer and pick out a pair. Usually he goes for the red ones…I think they are his favorite. Even if he has his green frog shoes on, he wants socks. I’ve finally given in to his requests…it’s all about independence, right? I mean, it has to be obvious that he dressed himself when we go out! That’s what I keep telling myself, anyway!
Who needs pants anyway? He other rockin’ style is go around with no pants on! Hmmm…socks and no pants…think Tom Cruise when he was two! He loves to take his pants off. There is usually a little song and dance immediately after he disrobes. I don’t know if they annoy him, he feels “freer” or he just wants to use the pants as a weapon against his brother, but he doesn’t hang out in them often! I am happy to say that although he must wear his yellow or red socks out, he does leave his pants on in public!
Is he going to be a rapper or a plumber? Another thing I’ve noticed with him is that he always (well, when he’s wearing them!) pulls on his pants. He likes to have them so low, you see a little “plumber action”, if you know what I mean! It’s funny, because I would have thought I would be getting on to him about that in his teenage years, but noooo, he has started already! With no boxers underneath to hide the goods! Oh, well, at least it’s kinda cute since he’s two! Probably not so much when he’s 40, but we have a little time to work on this!
Do your kids have any quirky “style” habits? Any baby divas? I can only imagine how much worse it will get when they start learning what’s cool to wear and what isn’t! Tell me your stories!
