Today Matilda & I had our first of what I assume will be many struggles over dressing. As I was getting out a tee shirt for her I kind of rhetorically asked, "How about this one today?" She shook her head no, said "owl" and pointed to the pile where the owl shirt normally lives. I explained that the owl shirt is currently living in the enormous pile of dirty clothes and wasn't an option. Instead I pulled out another tee and offered up a choice between the originally rejected tee and this new one. She flatly refused both and requested the owl shirt repeatedly. After some negotiation we settled upon this one with ants. And then went to work on that laundry pile.
