Dress Up Dillema

A long time ago - about two years ago, my daughter loved playing dress-up. She had princess costumes, wigs, crowns, capes, fairy get the picture. In fact, sometimes she insisted on going to the grocery store in one of her get-ups (yes, I was one of "those" moms who actually let her kid out of the house looking like a character from one of the Grimm Fairy Tales).

Now she is eight. That has all changed. Today she had a girl scout meeting and the theme was pretend play. She actually had to dress up and talk about her character. You would not believe the complaints I got about that: "Mom, dress up is for babies! I'm not dressing up!"

Fortunately the girl scout leader had the brilliant idea to have a cheerleader costume. That was acceptable. My daughter dressed up as a "geeky cheerleader" complete with a bleached-blond wig and oversized sunglasses. And she had fun!
