So Bon Don had to get a little Joan Crawford today.
Ok well maybe not this extreme...
But I did have to lay down the law!
See I know that "the style" nowadays is form fitting skinny jeans,
I even like these clothes and think the style is very cute...
See I still know what's "cool" I'm not a total square.
However, I don't think that my teenage daughters need to be showing off the goods with tight jeans and tight blouses.
Now let me clarify...
They CAN wear either one of these articles of clothing...
just not together!
My girls have very shapely figures for being so young and often get mistaken for being older than they are, so to allow them to wear certain "styles" of clothes together is out of the question.
My rule is, if you are going to wear skinny jeans then your top better not be tight, and if your wearing a tight blouse or baby-tee then no skinnys...
you get the point.
Well this morning my daughter Cindyjo was in a hurry to get to school early and finish a project so she threw on clothes and off we went.
I noticed what she was wearing when we were in the car and I told her, "Didn't I tell you not to wear tight on tight?"
Cindyjo said "I didn't even notice,
I just grabbed clothes cause I was in a hurry. I'm sorry"
(which in her defense I did rush her and seen that she just pulled clothes off a hanger)
I told her to call her sister who was still at home and tell her to bring her a T-shirt when she got to school, she called her sister made arrangments and I thought the issue was resolved.
(This is Cindyjo)
Well I got home today and asked Cindyjo,
"Did Joshmo bring you shirt to change into today?"
CindyJo said "No she forgot to bring one"
I said "Really!"
"ok change into the clothes you wore today,
come into my room show Dad what you had on at school"
I heard her little heart skip a beat.
She came back in the room and we told her we didn't want her to
"forget" the clothing rules again,
so we were going to resolve this by eliminating the problem.
Hubby told her to get some scissors
and then take the first snips into her clothes...
We told her to change and bring back the clothes so we could finish the job, you know spilt them up the middle of the pant leg to ensure they would not try to be salvaged...
We even threw in the
"had your sister brought you a shirt, you'd still have your jeans"
(let them fight that one out)
We told her that if this ever happens again "and she forgets about our dress code" bye bye True Religion, R&R & Ed Hardy Jeans!!
ALL OF THEM!
(The jeans are hanging in the closet to "remind" her)
*No children were harmed during this dramatization*
She took it like a champ, we ALWAYS follow through on our threats.
She kept giggling to make sure she didn't cry, she really like those pants.
