Its been coming, but today was the day S demanded to wear mismatched socks like her sister. She also insisted on wearing a purple shirt. I had her dressed, peach colored shirt and matching socks. We came home from taking H to school, the shirt came off, the shoes came off. No shirt No shoes No service, so I relented. S found a basket of laundry that has yet to be put away, found 2 socks to her liking, and fought every shirt I tried to put on her, saying "No! purple!" Until I found a purple shirt.
H was 2 when she decided to unmatch her socks, and has kept it up for 3 years. I suppose the day will come when she decides to match them again, and I will be sad.
For now, I love her trend setting ways, and enjoy every second of not having to put pairs of socks together after doing laundry.
