A while ago I wrote about what to wear to church and pretty much insinuated that we should just wear our pajamas. Well, last Sunday morning I was in the shower when Riley knocked on the door to ask me something. She opened the door and I told her whatever she wanted would have to wait until I got out of the shower. Then the following conversation ensued:
"Riley, please go get dressed for church."
"But Mommy, I am dressed."
"Um, the shirt is okay honey but you need a skirt or something nicer then those shorts." She was wearing those short short cozy cotton shorts.
"What Mommy, I didn't hear you?"
And then it hit me like a ton of bricks. What the heck was I saying?.....I was feeding my daughter the idea that what she was or how she looked wasn't good enough. So instead of repeating myself, I told her she looked beautiful and to go put shoes on.
Here she is that day eating her donut at church.
and no, that isn't a dress. Although from this angle it looks like it. But you can just barely see her shorts underneath.
Isn't she cute :)
