It used to be so easy to dress Burtch and Lawson. I’d put them in their little smocked or appliqued matching outfits and they didn’t complain.
That photo was only a year and a half ago. How quickly things change.
I can still wrangle them into smocked and appliqued things but only if I let them add their own special touches… like wearing the adorable smocked shirts backward.
“Lawson, come here. Your shirt’s on backward. Let me help you fix it.”
“No, I want it backward!”
I say ok and we go about our day.
I kind of like the look. It says “I’m an individual and I do as I please.” To some it may say “Kris Kross will make you jump, jump!” Maybe the kid’s got a future in hip hop.
Lawson also wears that black Mickey Mouse hat every day. He started wearing it after I gave him a bad haircut six months ago and now even though his hair looks better it’s like his security blanket. We don’t leave the house without it. Lord help us on the day his head grows.
Burtch isn’t as particular about his clothes but he’ll occasionally add an accessory to make a statement.
Like this train conductor hat…
And then there’s this…
You have to admit, he has style.
