Embracing the cowgirl look.
Here is a picture of my son from the spring of 2009. Apparently he felt the need to cover all four seasons in one outfit! — mom, Leslie
This picture is one of my daughter Madeleine's "tamer" outfits. She won't let me take a picture of the really wacky ones. — mom, Kristin
I call this outfit "Laces Out". — mom, Shelley
A friend gave us a bag of hand-me-downs that included some dress clothes. Wyatt found the vest and too-big dress shoes, proclaimed that they were "tap shoes" and took off to his room to find more things to complete his outfit so he could dance for us. This was the end result. — mom, Amy
Ari is known in the house as the master of miss-matching. She tends to try and turn anything she sees into a dress/headband combination. Here, you see her using a dish towel and a belt. — aunt, Carly
We went out with her wearing this outfit — sometimes it's just better to let her wear what she wants than have a mini diva battle! — mom, Patricia
My two-year-old son chose to wear swim trunks as pants for his birthday. — mom, Anna
