What Not to Wear

Everyone headed outside to play in snow... So Seth decided to get dressed and go with them.



ATTEMPT #1:

Um, no. Let's try again.
(Please note the shoes, and bare everything, and hat.)



ATTEMPT #2:
You might need some limbs free to play? Or some pants?

ATTEMPT #3:

Pants appropriate for snoozing, shoes appropriate for sand. Nothing appropriate for snow.

But he'd forgotten at this point what he was dressing for, so it didn't really matter. It sure made for a fun half hour for mom, though.

Hey, you can't blame the kid for tryin'. And, he almost had it on the first one, right?

That would have been fun, though.

Celia Fae said...

Um, is wearing girls flats? Just wondering. Probably not hello kitty boots.

Ilene said...

Nii-iice. At least he tries to dress myself. I just get Jackson collasping on the floor in tears when I ask him to get dressed or put on shoes all the while wailing, "I can't do it. I don't want to do it by myself."

I hope you got your cards completed. In love with the Gilmore Girls yet? Paris and Emily are my absolute favorite characters.

Lauren said...

I have to admit...he looks adorable! Cute flats, by the way...

Paige said...

I'm just impressed the kid can get himself dressed! It's hard for Bea to get herself dressed when she's begging for her bottle.

gab said...

Dressing and undressing is such a fun game. But, oy!...the laundry.

Karen said...

I love the first look. Cute shoes.

Seth looks like he'd fit in just fine here in AZ. The last outfit looked pretty good to me...I live in flip-flops.

John Holly Levi & Faith said...

The flats are killing me!!! And the first one with the little unsure smile? So cute.
But the clothing mess is a nightmare with the snow.

By the way, how are you stacking your pictures next to each other like that? I've tried and it doesn't work.

50th try is the charm right?

Sometimes I get distracted like that and forget what I started out doing. Maybe I started out young like him.

Hey guys! I got my Christmas card for you sent back to me. Will you send me your address, and if you have aunt Susan's address list, can you send that too? Mike can't remember where he saved it. brookeromney@cox.net

you know you have a blogging addiction when you spend a half hour photographing your son's self-dressing fiasco, all the while mentally formulating the blog entry. this is, of course, instead of helping the child get dressed. but as one of your blog readers, i thank you. it started my day with a laugh.

Denae said...

So cute! His little toes look cold though.

Jill said...

That was hilarious...too cute! Thanks for the laugh.

Abbie said...

At least he's trying. I give him props for that. He probably could get away with the flip flops here.

Lisa-Marie said...

Isn't it nice how much more fun life is since blogging? That scenario could have so easily been cause for tears for mom but not when you have a great blog post in mind!

Love your shoe "thing" in the closet!

bloggingchristy said...

Seth is so funny! He looks so cute in those pictures. That picture of Jane is SOOO cute of her!

crystal said...

I think flip flops are totally appropriate for snow. Just ask any teenager.

Stie: My Favorite Things said...

I think you should have let him go out in the first outfit. Teach him how to brave the snow like a man...in his ballet flats. Lovely!

Annie said...

Attempt number two completely cracks me up. It looks like he got stuck in a clothes tornado.

If you can't beat 'em (not literally...you know), blog 'em!

Carie said...

He is adorable.

We just dodged a major ice storm here but things are still very cold. We are doing the winter clothes thing too. It is such an ordeal.

Auzigirl said...

That just cracked me up. Kids are great fun aren;t they

Tiffany said...

I had such a great time catching up on your happenings -- you are an inspiration to me! You make me smile, laugh and, on a serious note, ponder on how I can be a better mom and wife. I loved your thoughts on the walnuts and sand. It's something I could definitely benefit from.

And, I want to live in your neighborhood! Are the cookies as good as they look?

Oh - and loved the 1988 picture -- I actually remember you that way!
Your kids are adorable -- I want to meet Jane -- I think she and Loie would get along very well.

Adrianne said...

I love Seth.

julie said...

Okay, so you don't know me, but I found your blog and this post cracked me up. Especially the first two pictures. So funny!

Nortorious said...

Is he wearing heels?
You have a lot of commentors. I'm going to poach some.

AMY said...

So glad my four year old boy isn't the only one who appreciate's a nice pair of shoes. #3 loves to wear #4's disney princess shoes (Hubby doesn't know this yet...why work him up over something we'll (hopefully) grow out of??). Seth's got some serious fashion sense going on!

Bridget said...

I think Seth and my Ethan would get along great. He wears Crocs in the snow without socks. Last night he insisted it was not too cold (it was 38 degrees) to play on the outdoor McDonalds play structure with no jacket on.

Kristin said...

I have the winter clothes hanging by the door, with the boots right under them. It's only 11 degrees outside right now in wonderful Minnesota. But my kids still end up the same way, and it takes me twenty minutes to get everyone dressed and out the door.

Me & My BOYS said...

I'm starting to think that your blog is a weather forcast for us. Whenever you do a post about snow... it comes for us the next day. Here we go again.

Lindsay said...

My vote's for the Where's Waldo outfit, that was the best one!
