I’m often amazed with the outfits ML creates from her wardrobe. Usually, I refrain from asking her to change clothes. Unless, it’s 30 degrees and she’s wearing a tank top and shorts. I’ll save the clothing arguments for later years. Her combinations mimic her personality. Athletic, original and full of zest.
I knew when Why’d They Wear That? Fashion as the Mirror of History by Sarah Albee arrived, ML would love it. The text is difficult to read for a 2nd grader; but I knew she would poor over the pictures. She did. For the first time in a long time, she did not resist a book recommendation from me.
Today, when I dropped ML off at carpool, we were greeted by a drummer boy and a man playing a fife. Any guesses on “Why’d they wear that?”
