Fashionista

Cameron is picky when it comes to his clothes. No, let me rephrase that. Cameron is extremely picky when it comes to his clothes. There's really no rhyme or reason to his pickiness. You can't look at an article of clothing and tell that he will hate it. Well, that's not true. He hates polo shirts. You can look at those and know he won't wear them. He hates the collars.

He tends to fixate on certain items, like shirts, and will wear them over and over and over and over and over and neglect the 30 others hanging in his closet. It's maddening. We've had many an argument over clothes while trying to get ready for school. We had one today.

A few weeks ago, I bought him around 6 new shirts and a few pairs of shorts. I wouldn't give him the shirts until he agreed to wear some of the others in his closet. Plus, he had to agree to wear some of Tyler's old (and still perfectly good) ones. Yep, you guessed it. He's picky about hand me downs too. He gave in and has actually been pretty okay with both. What he hasn't been okay with is one of the pairs of shorts I bought him. I think they're super cute and he thinks they look like poop. They're a lightweight cotton with a plaid print. You know, the kind all the cool kids are wearing. He threw a fit the first time I made him wear them, but finally gave in because I threatened to take away his new shirts if he didn't. By the end of the first day of wearing them, he claimed to love them. I thought a major life hurdle had just been jumped. Hooray. Today, when I tried to get him to wear them, he informed me that he had never really liked them and had only said he did to be nice. We argued back and forth for a few minutes with me telling him they looked cool and him telling me that they looked stupid. I tried a few ultimatums and he still refused. He then said, "they're ridiculous. They make me look like an American on top and a Scottish person on the bottom. (Remember, they're plaid.) I look like a dork when I wear them". I didn't make him wear them today, but only because that made me laugh so hard I couldn't continue the fight.

That is so funny! I can just imagine saying all that with that look certain look on his face.

My kids are so particular too. It gets very frustrating sometimes. I'm almost to the point of not buying them any new clothes.

Hahahahaha!! I can just hear him saying that in his "Cameron voice". I really and truly busted a gut when I read that!!

Jo said...

He is a very clever child. He made me laugh! Is he half Scottish? I bet you have some Scottish in you somewhere...Because then you can go back to making him wear them.

Holly said...

LOL, he is too funny! I bought some of those cute plaid shorts for Julia and she won't wear them either. Picky kids!

That was so funny, I can only picture Cameron being the one to come up with it.
