I’m a big believer in letting kids do as much as they can by themselves. That’s why when we’re getting ready to go out for the day I just tell Isaac to go get dressed. If it’s cold I’ll give him some guidelines (I suggest you wear long pants and a long sleeve shirt type stuff), but otherwise if he’s willing to wear it, I’m willing to allow it. He’s just expected to get it done quickly. Lately I’ve been trying the same with Elliot. Sure he can’t fully dress himself, but he can pick things out.
Which led to this beauty.
A few nights ago I had finished brushing their teeth and told them to go pick out pajamas. I kid you not, this is what Elliot chose as his “pajamas” for that night.
