Isn’t she cute? Today was the kids’ Halloween Party at preschool and they got to dress up for a costume contest. Addison was SO excited to put on her purple wig (the wig was choice 1 and we had to find a costume to match) and rock her GoGo boots at preschool.
Now, before anyone strains and eye trying to verify what they think they see, yes – she is wearing pink fishnet stockings. Last year she wore black. She also sporting about 3 tattoos in various locations under her dress that seem fairly permanent…they just won’t come off. Maybe she’s destined to have them forever? She’s wearing make-up too. I put it on her without her asking, as I know how much she likes to wear it.
Now, I know a lot of parents will disagree with this little get-up, but I’m ok with that. That’s the beauty of parenting…we don’t have to agree. I doubt that my allowing her to dress in fishnets, have tattoos and wear makeup at 4 (nearly 5) will have any lasting effects, except that maybe she’ll grow up to wear fishnets, have tattoos and wear makeup.
Worse things could happen.
And, because it just isn’t fair to leave this post without sharing little man…
