Marching to the Beat of Her Own Drum

For such a petite little pixie, E does not like "cute things" (frilly dresses, princesses . . .) only "cool stuff" (Superman, Spiderman, Cars, trucks . . .). It is a rare day when I get her to agree to have her hair styled in anything other than the required pony-tail-to-keep-the-hair-out-of-your-face. She has her own ideas of what looks good and what doesn't. She is a big fan of shorts, shades and snow boots (Grandma asks how I can let her go to preschool like that. I am just happy she is dressed.)

Here are a few examples of outfits she has put together herself.

She loves her cowboy boots and overalls. Both hand-me-downs. She would wear them everyday if I didn't insist that she put clean clothes on for preschool. One day I was lucky, and she let me do her hair a "cool" way we saw on a little girl in Wal-Mart.

notice the overalls

Her willingness to have her hair done inspired "That Baby" to ask for her hair to be styled also. I could only get a little ponytail holder in the top, we think she is a cute fountainhead.

You have to look closely, but the hair is there.

So cute Cheryl. I love reading your blog. I loved reading this post. My little girl is very adamant about things too, but she's girly to the EXTREME!! It HAS to be a dress. It has to be fancy/dressy. She's been like this since birth I swear! They just come as they come, don't they!! I love reading about your kids.
