I want to pick out my own clothes!

Conor is now going through his "I'm a big boy and I want to dress myself" phase. I think it is cute, but some of the clothes he picks out are very.. ummm.. dorkish. We go through mornings where he absolutely MUST pick out his own clothes, and for the most part I just go with it. I let him wear whatever he wants, and I take a change of clothes with us to the sitter's. With the temperatures in the high 90s and 100s (F) he is choosing to wear long sleeves with shorts. In the photo below, the clothes at least match, but the socks just make it so funny.


I need to work swaying him in other directions, and for the most part, I can... some day he will see that knee-high socks with shorts and sandals (which he does not have on in this picture, but he did later put them on) are not really a good look. But.. he's 4 and he's cute, so I guess he can get away with it for a little while.

On another Conor note - if it wasn't apparent before that he absolutely loves girls (with his huge crush on Carley - a little girl at his baby sitter's house), it is now. He has taken to creating female characters on the computer (World of Warcraft) and then taking all their clothes off so that they are just wearing the bikini clothes that are on all of the characters. He thinks they are pretty. lol

He is too funny! I am so glad that I was able to see him while we were in town last week. I think that I made a lifetime friend just by talking about Spongebob Squarepants!

oh, yes, you did! He was talking about you when I picked him up from Barb's house. Sorry I missed you while you were here. I didn't find out until that day (that's what happens when I don't check my email for a few days!)

He likes female characters in bikini's? Good taste, my kind of kid! Hmmmm, maybe I should also check into this game myself....
