My daughter is 2 years old. She romps, she roars, she jumps off the couch, she climbs up the stacks in the kitchen, she crawls all over the floor, she chases the cat, she rolls around in the grass, she falls off her bike, she acts like animals while imitating their sounds. My daughter flips, she runs, she screams, and digs around in her sandbox and jumps head first into the toybox. Hm, personally, I don't think she'd be able to do anything in a dress 24/7. It's not convienient. Not to mention, at 2 years old, she chooses what she wants to wear 80% of the time. Sometimes she picks a dress, most of the time it's pants and a shirt. With the way my daughter acts, I would not feel comfortable with her in a DRESS out in public where strangers would be able to see her diaper quite easily. Pants keep her covered and they let her move around freely. Unless it's a real special occasion, why would I even bother? I don't consider her a ragdoll for my dressing up purposes. As for her hair...
you have obviously never tried to get a little girl to keep hair bows, scrunchies, clips or head bands on... The minute I put any on my girls they start fiddling with them until they fall out. So unless it's a special occasion my girls get the same as my boys - a brush through their hair and that's it!
Exactly. My DD is impossible to make sit still while I try to brush her hair into a pony tail or anything. It's STRESSFUL to try and make her sit still long enough for me to get even ONE pony tail in, let along piggy tails, and usually the other piggy tail ends up cricked or off center because it's just not possible to sit her still. I don't bother, because I'd rather not get stressed over something so stupid as dolling her hair up, especially when they'll be messed up within 2 hours tops. Plus, have you ever put a tight pony tail in and by the end of the day try taking it out? Do you ever feel that losening and the "awwh god, finally my hair isn't being pulled out of my head" and it just feels amazing to run your fingers through the hair to relax the scalp? Why in the WORLD would I put my daughter through that every day? It's uncomfortable!
As far as pink...yuck. Not my favorite. It doesn't compliment her face at all. I think my daughter looks absolutely stunning in browns, blues and greens.They reflect her eyes amazingly. Pink takes away from her beauty.
