Those of you that know me are aware that I have a small fetish when it comes to t-shirts. In fact, that’s my typical outfit no mater what the weather; jeans and a t-shirt. I have dozens of t-shirts and each year for Christmas, I ask Brett to buy me at least a dozen more. Most of the shirts have some sort of play on words and while not downright offensive, they have the ability to produce a smirk on whoever reads them.
It comes as no surprise then, that ALL Cardin wants to wear lately are her t-shirts. Though, I gotta tell you kid, while you like the penguin shirt we bought at the zoo, its not nearly as cool as mommy’s “without me it’s just aweso” shirt. Just saying.
As her mother, I feel obligated to try and dress her more appropriately for the weather than I dress myself; meaning long sleeves and pants. We fight over her clothing most mornings and typically I give in and let her wear a t-shirt. Brett thinks I coddle her, but I think that she’s just trying to express herself with her t-shirt style and who am I to oppress that?
Listen Lady, let the woman wear the blue penguin t-shirt and just call it a day. I suppose I succeed in the world of mommies as long as she doesn’t head out of the house in the nude? Besides, I’d rather save my energy, because I figure in about 10 years, a whole new round of fighting over clothes is going to start. And really….mommy & daddy ARE going to win those fights.
This is my newest shirt. If I have to explain the significance of this shirt to you then clearly you have lived under a rock for the past 10 years. Also, bustedtees.com is my favorite place to shop for t-shirts; I highly recommend.
