DD says she will be true to herself, but does agree she is too old to wear Princess stuff. She says tink & friends & mickey and friends are okay. Anyone else have this type of issue?
See this is why i am all for uniforms (including the shoes) when everybody look a like, at least the same clothes, then it should cut done on noticing who is wearing what anyway. And since when being popular in 4th grade was a priority? I mean when I was in 4th grade boys were still gross, my mom was still doing my hair, and you were cool if you wrote your name in cursive and was able to do an assignment in ink pen without making a mistake. I mean whats next 2 year olds in pre school not playing with or talking about the kid who's not wearing the latest Huggies pull up design? This is so sad you tell your daughter to stay true to herself and enjoy whatever it is she is in to. And a true friend will like you for what you have in common with each other and not what she is wearing. ;0)
