Every morning, my 3-year-old picks out her outfit for the day. Usually, she yells, "Don't come in here!" while she lays everything out. Then, she takes me by the hand and proudly displays her choices. She beams, her smile lighting up the room. Her little hands clench in excitement.
"Does it match?" she'll ask. It almost always does. If not, I'll say, "Well, that red kind of clashes with this orange, but you can still wear it if you want [and I mean it when I say that]. Or I can help you pick out another shirt/skirt." And I always try to remind her that beauty comes from her heart - from loving God and loving people.
She can find all of her clothes independently, thanks in part to Lil' Dressers Drawer Labels for Kids. They're reusable labels that identify clothing stored in dresser drawers. Each package comes with 18 drawer labels that can be colored with crayon or marker (which, of course, my 3-year-old did gladly...and -wow - she is becoming a pro at staying in the lines!).
Reasonably priced at $9.50/package, the fun-to-use labels are made in the USA...by a mom.
As a side benefit, my 3-year-old can also help put away her own laundry now (and Tim can no longer claim that he doesn't know where the girls' clothes go). ;)
