Pick Your Battles

When E got up this morning and got herself dressed for school, I noticed what she was wearing: a magenta undershirt with yellow stars, tissue thin, white t-shirt, and royal blue sweat pants with a green stripe -- and don't forget the mis-matched teal and pink striped socks. I noticed because I knew they were singing a song and doing a dance at the "Gathering" at school this afternoon, and that I would be there with my camera ... but of course, hoping she would wear a cute purple sweater with khaki pants was out of the question. She was ensconsed comfortably somewhere between "What Not to Wear: Elementary School Version" and "street urchin." However, she was dressed, which was most important, so I decided not to fight it...
