Wait, you weren't wearing that 5 minutes ago.

There is something that frustrates me to no end and I can't make it stop. No matter what I have tried it continues. What would bring this mama to a full on rampage? My oldest girls change their clothes, probably, 4 times EACH day. At first I tried just telling them not to but that didn't work. I remember the first time I got so angry that I went in and cleaned out their closets of all clothes and brought them downstairs. Problem solved, right? Wrong. The minute I thought I could trust them again and brought the clothes back up they did it all over again! Next I tried time outs when they would change their clothes but again that did nothing. I have tried telling them that it is ok if they would just HANG their clothes that they change out of back up again but they throw previously worn clothes down the clothes chute. So, I have tried yelling and that didn't work. I have tried removing all clothes from their room and that didn't work either. I don't know how to get through to them on this. What to do?

Your girls are so beautiful, there is no way you can stay upset with them!

My girls do the same thing...I think it is a phase, but then again...I doubt it!

Haha! Look at them. They're like, "What? Me?" All innocence aren't they?

No advice. We're not at that stage yet. Maybe you'll have this problem licked by the time Raya gets around to it. ;)

They're so gorgeous! Mine has gone the other way. She gets so fond of the dress she picks in the morning she doesn't want to change out of it for anything. I think the laundry chute is just too fun!

Jessie I know you probably think I'm crazy when I say that I always feel very connected to your posts. Maybe it's because we both have girls around the same age who do the same things. All I can say is I feel your pain. Lyndsy and Jillian are CONSTANTLY changing their outfits/pajamas/shoes/etc. It drives me insane! I end up with outfits laying everywhere. I don't know what's clean or dirty, etc. If you figure out a cure, pass it on!
