Miss V has been majorly into clothes since she was only about two years old. I honestly haven’t been able to choose her outfits since, and have finally learnt not to buy her anything unless she is with me, as she refuses to wear anything she doesn’t 100% like. She also often drives me crazy when it takes her ages to decide what to wear, or what head band goes with a certain outfit. (My dad recently told me that I was just as annoying when I was her age though, so I suppose I only have myself to blame for all this…)
When Venla was about three, we went through a stage when she used to go out in some very questionable outfits, to the point I felt the need to explain to her pre-school key worker that I had nothing to do with the way she looked. But I do actually think that choosing outfits is just another way for children to express themselves, which is why I’ve always just let her do it.
In the last couple of months, Venla has also started choosing her brothers’ clothes and even tell me what I should wear. This is what she was finally happy with herself today when we were going to the rugby club. If you are like me, you might wonder if she couldn’t find the other glove, but no… apparently it is way cooler just to wear one.
If she turns out to be an accountant or a coder, I will be very surprised!
