I explained to the hubbs that the only suits I could find had Dora or Disney princesses all over them which is why I came home empty handed.
I'm just not into that (though clearly I have no problem with Paul Frank)
I don't know what it is about character clothing and shoes but I just can't do it. I can't exactly put my finger on why, but it rubs me the wrong way--especially on someone so small. I guess I feel like I'm signing my kid up to be a billboard but them I'm paying a premium for the privilege.
But this isn't really a rant about clothes with characters. This is about how on Monday after 2 successful trips to the potty I told Claire that if she wanted to keep going pee in the potty we could go get Dora underpants. Her interest was peeked. She talked about it all day, went pee in the potty and off we went. I passed up the unmarked panties and we went right on to Dora. She was thrilled. She talks about them all the time. And when she wears them she spends all of her time in front of the mirror looking at herself and saying, "so cute."
It was the hubbs who pointed out that I seem to have no problem with Dora underpants if they're helping me accomplish what I want.
He's right. Turns out my strong opinion is only around when I'm not trying to be diaper free for at least a month before the new baby comes.
And the good news is, my blind spot has turned around to bite me. Whenever she wears the Dora underpants she pees in them (usually she is in the bathroom looking at how cute she looks and forgets to go). It's only when she's naked that she can remember to go to the potty. So, as a good friend put it, the answer seems obvious.
More naked time at our house.
