You would think that being on TV means I love spending time shopping and putting together outfits to show off on TV. Wrong! Shopping for clothing stresses me out. This is not a result of having many people looking and judging my outfit daily on the Morning News. I've always been that way. I think I was one of the few girls who liked having a school uniform while growing up. Maybe WGN could issue us old school two piece suits with the number 9 on them...
Shopping for my daughter is a completely different story. I love it! My friends who also have little girls were right. I would rather shop for Amelia than for myself. Matching her outfits is a lot easier than matching mine and she seems to look cute in everything. As the Latin mom of a girl, I pride myself in having her accessorized almost from head to toe. In our culture, no outfit is complete without a bow.
I never thought I would feel any stress dressing my cute little girl. But it's Sunday night and I find myself staring at her closet, fretting over what Amelia will wear tomorrow. The school doesn't allow jeans so that kills 50 percent of my creations. I don't want to send her in her best dresses, just in case it's finger painting day. I admit it, I want her teachers to notice how well put together she always looks. Yes, it's vain but don't worry I'm more concerned about her doing a good job, socializing with others and adjusting well, as evidenced in my previous posts First Day of Pre school and Pre school and Potty.
Clearly this is only her third week in school. Check in on us come January when I break out her sweats. Ay Mama!
