Clothes Horse

I'm folding laundry right now- Ernie is asleep, Mimi is in her bouncy chair, enthralled with my laundry hamper. I'm looking at Ernie's clothes for the last few days:

12 pairs underwear
6 pairs pants
2 pairs shorts
1 sweater
9 shirts
5 pairs pajamas
10 pairs socks

What is is about girls and changing their clothes? Ernie has some funny habits now that the baby is here, and changing her clothes seems to be one of them. It's not uncommon for her to come out from her nap in an entirely new outfit. She's already dressed by the time I see her in the morning. Socks are strewn all over the house. Sweaters are next to every exit. And me? I just empty the hampers when they get too full. At least the soap is cheap!

There was a time where MP would come home with a pile of laundry from school every day. I can understand. I think clothes are cuter in little sizes myself. :) But 5 shirts and 4 bottoms on a daily basis was getting to be a bit much. Never had the heart to ruin her fun though.

Happy dressing Ernie.

Hmm...who'da thunk! Ernie's a clothes horse!

I think she just likes the "puzzle" of taking them off and putting them on!
