This Week's Complaints

I would say I can be uptight at times, and freely admit that I need to work on this. However, when toddler decided that he will no longer where anything other than sweat pants, (this is in addition to the no jacket problem we have been having since fall set in) I started losing my mind. Preschool teaches him an array of great things, like how to throw out his trash, counting to 10,  how to say 'please' and 'thank you' (which we have been teaching him since birth, but it seems it takes an outsider to make it all gel). But it cant seem to teach him how to be reasonable. Does this come with age? (If so, what age might that be?) Persistence?

For our best friends' baby's christening in East Hampton this past weekend, I thought surely Tucker would wear the adorable corduroy pants and fair isle knit I purchased for him. And perhaps he'd want to wear his Ralph Lauren quilted coat that my husband would die to have for himself. But of course all this planning was doomed from the start, and after physical struggle, failed bribes, and an emptying of the drawers, we ended up at the preppy, upper-east side meets Eastern Long Island church in sweat pants paired with the adorable patterned sweater (a 50% victory if I was a glass half full kind of girl). This is why they make wine, and why afternoon drinking is still a thing past the age of 21.

  1. Awwww! Haha... Ah, that must be so frustrating. But I'm SURE your friends understood. Or, at least, they will in two years. ;) This was so cute!
