Actual Conversation

Middle Twerp was not feelin the love today as he had to go to school while his brother was able to stay home and play the Wii. I told him he needed to learn early on in life that injustices occur -- suck it up, walk it off, get back in the game.However in an attempt to get him enthusiastic about the opportunity for growth and learning, I allowed him to wear his Super Hero shirt to school. (Just a little side note about me: I dislike character shirts. The boy twerps LOVE character shirts. Here in lies the problem.) Anyhoo, the following conversation occurred on the way to school with the Super Hero shirt in tact.MT: Mom, I am having second thoughts about this shirt.

CG: Why sweetie? Are you realizing a nice Old Navy sweatshirt woulda been a better choice? Or possibly a darlin little GAP sweater with a layered shirt?

MT: No. I just don't know if I am ready to reveal my true identity quite yet.

I will go to my grave being the mean mommy who refused to buy tennis shoes that blink and say "Dora the Explorer" but everybody has their line in the sand. I'm happy you can let him go with it.

And thank you today for so much encouragement. My eyes well up even now as I think about it. I am thankful for you CG! Enjoy that prayer book.

I totally agree with the ugliness of character shirts, shoes and everything like it. However, my kiddos LOVE them so much that I caved a few years back. Mainly because they get so much joy from them (seriously) and because I had to pick my battles and got tired. Love your sons comment BTW.

I'm with you on the t-shirts. I'll be the other mean mommy, I won't buy that stuff. I can't stand them & cringe when someone gives them one. I let them wear them around the house to play in but I do everything to not let them out in public with those.

OK so having done some more thinking about this whole tee shirt situation, I've decided it's time for 'the talk'. I really, really hate them wearing their star wars shirts every where and I'm the mom right? So! I am banning all cartoon/action figure clothing EXCEPT for bed time. They are welcome to wear their ugly old tee's to bed. :) Thanks for the courage.
