Did I ever mention...

That my husband is a total genius? Well, maybe I did over here.

Seriously, the man has great ideas. Whenever I have any kind of problem or issue, he thinks about it and always comes up with a wonderful and creative solution.

The problem this time was that baby B will not leave her socks on. Of course it was no problem when the weather was warm. But now, it's been cold for a couple/few weeks here and the girl will just not leave anything on her feet. Her piggies have been freezing cold! I go get her socks several times a day, and within minutes they disappear. And one always disappears deeper than the other and just cannot be located. I had gotten to the point where if we were going somewhere I would remove her socks and shoes as soon as we got to the (warmed up) car so that I could put them back on when it was time to go in (otherwise the car would absolutely swallow one sock - never to be retrieved).

So yesterday, here's my baby girl, trying to pull her shirt off, running around with bare freezing piggies... Daddy takes her into the bedroom to, I assume, get her some worthless socks... Instead she comes out looking like she dressed herself ;) [I have been trying all morning to load pictures so that you can see for yourself, but no such luck. I am still having horrid issues with uploading pictures and am ready to throw a huge fit! So I will just lamely describe her attire for you: pink patterned long sleeved pj shirt, short sleeved pink patterned dress, and blue snowflake tights]. At first I was a little horrified, but we weren't going anywhere, so... then I realized what a piece of genius went into the dressing.

Dad had put a dress on over her pj shirt so she couldn't lift it. And the best thing? He found a pair of tights to put on her! While they were a little on the big side, they certainly did the trick. She sat down and pulled on them a few times before she finally had to give up and suffer the rest of the day with warm piggies!

Needless to say, we went out and bought a bunch of tights!

Now if we could just find some shoes that she can't wiggle out of.

That's too funny! Too bad you didn't get pics up of her outfit. Sometimes you just gotta do what you can do with these crazy kids.

Great idea! My girls HATE to wear socks. They both tug them off as soon as they go on. And yes, they do the same in the car. LOL!

If you aren't going anywhere how about feety PJ's?
