I am amused when people ask me if I let Maeve dress herself.
I understand that to some parents, their kids' appearance is important to them, and they want their kids to look just so. But I get a thrill out of seeing what miraculous thing my child is going to put on this morning. It's kind of a trip. So that's the kind of parent I am.
So when you see my kid running around in rainbow leggings and a polka dot dress with plaid socks, don't ask me if I let her dress herself. I get a thrill out of seeing what she'll pick out today!
