Scarring my 5 y.o DD for life? UPDATE!!!! 1/11/13
My 5 y. o has a very....colorful...style. She will match orange and black striped shirt with purple and yellow and white polk-a-dots skirt and tights. I think it's fine, she's 5, and as long as it's weather appropriate i am not going to fight that battle with her. My mother, however, has accused me of being a bad mother and of scarring my child for life by letting her wear mis-matched clothes. What do all of you think?
OMG!!!! My mother is being absolutely ridiculus! I was told today that if I let her wear "those kind of outfits" that she will be viewed as mentally unstable, no kids will want to play with her, the teachers will look down on her and my family (meaning her and my father and my brother and his kids) will be humiliated. Seriously? WTF! I kinda lost my temper with her. Because she couldn't say it just once, she had to continue to harp on it. Ugh. I can not believe I am actually moving to with in 10 miles of her. Limits are going to have to be set and if she can't abide by them she is NOT going to like it. There are some other issues between us but we are making the move to save money and for our dd well being. I just hope my mental health can handle being around her.more often.
