S is very particular about her clothing. She chooses her outfits each morning, and I’ve long since given up trying to make her wear anything at all. This poses a bit of a problem then, when companies want to send us clothes for her. It’s hit and miss, when the clothes turn up, as to whether she’ll actually put them on and smile nicely for the camera!
A little while ago, House of Fraser asked if S would like some Summer shorts to try out. After some deliberating, I chose a gorgeous pair I thought she would really like… then the weather changed, and with it raining every day, we didn’t have much cause to wear shorts. When the sunshine eventually began to appear again, I showed S the shorts. She agreed they were very pretty, but refused to wear them.
Each morning I would show her the shorts and ask if she’d like to wear them. She refused. Some mornings, she even cried. I began to think I would have to do a rubbish post with just a photo of the shorts.
And then, on Sunday morning, she just picked them up and put them on. And then she danced on the bed in them.
Later that morning, we went to our local book shop to see Abie Longstaff. She read her new book, and then the children played with some dollies. S took great pleasure in showing Abie her new shorts, which were of course admired greatly.

By some miracle, the shorts survived the day with no spillages or accidents, which was good because when she got up on Monday morning, S wanted to wear them again.
Hopefully she won’t change her mind back again…
