Speaking of Mental Health

WHY in the name of all that's holy does my daughter INSIST on wearing EVERY DAY the thin, faded, cheapo clothes I bought her at Wal-Mart last year for $3 a piece? And every day it takes her forever to get dressed because none of her clothes are sparkly enough. And then she decides on the worn-out ones, unless they are dirty because she wore them yesterday, in which case she throws herself on the bed and "cries" (no actual tears, of course). I've made a drawer of clothes she is not allowed to wear outside the house because they're too faded/stained/small, but the clothes I dislike don't actually fall into this category, and at least she'll wear them despite their lack of sparkle. But every day we have an argument about her clothes.


Somebody kill me before she turns thirteen.

Please. I'm begging you.


  1. My poor daughter is allowed to go out of the house on a regular basis in clothes she picks herself and with hair she fixed herself. The only time I press the issue is if it's somewhere like church. THe drawback is that she will hate me when she's older for letting her out of the house like that!

  2. Ebaby only wants to wear skirts now. Of course she only has a couple that Nana gave her. I am sick of looking at the same two skirts when there is a drawer full of shorts and pants!

    Sucker that I am I'll buy more skirts.

  3. again... please lord don't let us have a girl... ever!

    speaking of silver lining... look at it this way, how long do you think you'll be able to get away with buying cheap clothes at wally-world? i'd thank my lucky stars if i was you.
