Fashion Sense of a 5-Year Old Boy

Big T is quite the fashionista...or is it fashionisto for boys?  The point is I can no longer go shopping for clothes without him.  If I do, it is almost a guarantee that he won't like whatever I bought.  I've been burned too many times and I've finally learned my lesson.  He's so particular about his clothes...can't believe it starts as early as 5-years-old!

I'm all for my kids having a say in what they wear because I have no choice afterall, they have to wear it and feel good in it.

These days, however, it's not so much what Big T wants to wear but HOW he wants to wear it.  Take his jacket...apparently for a 5-year-old boy, it's cool to wear your jacket/coat like this:

"Mom, I like it this way"

Now, we're in Canada.  It's almost December.  It's cold.  Not as cold as some parts of Canada, but it's cold.  I think it was 2 degrees Celcius today.  For my friends in the US, that's 34 degrees Farenheit.  COLD!  It no doubt looks weird that I'm wearing a warm coat (zipped up!), a scarf, possibly gloves and maybe even a hat, and my child looks like this!  Hubby has attempted to tell Big T that this look isn't "cool", (no, it's freezing!) but Big T begs to differ.  There's no changing his mind.  Apparently he's not cold.  And even when I have him zipped up on the way to school, the minute he comes in view of the place, he's unzipping it and pulling it off his shoulders.

What can I say?  My boy is nuts.

It's a good thing I love nuts.

My 9 yr old daughter won't even wear a jacket and it is pretty darn cold here too! I would be thrilled if your son taught her that it was cool to wear her jacket the way he does because at least she'd have a little bit of warmth around her ;-) Kids are definitely nuts!! Good thing I am not allergic!!

Haha! What a cutie he is! I think it's funny to see the ideas that kids get in their heads. It's taken weeks to convince my 6-year-old that it's OK to wear a winter coat and usually is she just carrying it when I drop her off for school. Though I think she'll come around when it starts to get really cold. :)
