Oh, Husband, No!

What's wrong with this picture? Read on to find out!

Ever since we had Raelynn, there is no such thing as sleeping in. For either of us. And ever since I started teaching again, that means every morning, like it or not, I must get up at 6am. On weekends, we try to go back to sleep but since Raelynn is used to the routine of waking up so early, she's ready to play at 6am. Though lucky us, this morning, she decided 5:30am was a great time to wake up and play. I can't be too mad at her though. The sun has been rising earlier and earlier, so I get why she thinks it's okay to be awake.

Jeremy and I played with her a bit but then we both wanted more sleep. Into the playpen she went. A while later, she cried and Jeremy went to check it out. She'd apparently pooped but that was as much as I heard about it. I rolled over and went back to sleep. My sweet husband took care of things while I slept, unbeknownst to me. When I woke up, I was greeted by a happy baby who was running around the house in her sneakers. And an outfit that didn't match. Oh Jeremy! It reminded me of the last time he dressed her himself. There is a reason why I pick out Raelynn's clothes each day. If I don't have time to dress her, fine, but my husband (or his mother if she is here watching the baby) are not allowed to pick out her outfits. Please click here to see what he dressed her in last time. Go on. You HAVE TO see it. I'll wait. Done? Ok. Yeah. Ugh.

So here is my poor mismatched baby from this morning:
It's awesome that Jeremy put her in her USF (Go Bulls!) jersey from Joel and Andrea. After all the Florida Gators (coughcoughSUCKcoughcough) crap my parents bought for her, it was nice to have her wear a shirt promoting where I'd graduated from college. And the pants are from my wonderful Auntie Jill. The pants are grey with pink polka dots. Separately, there is nothing at all wrong with these 2 garments. 
The problem lies, as you can see from our little pouty model here, in that these 2 items together do not at all match. They don't even slightly go together. No. It's like my husband just groped for them blindly in the dark which he couldn't have since the sun was up and Raelynn's room, even with the curtains drawn, gets plenty of light in it. Because we were going to the QICF anyway, I just waited until we got ready to leave to change her into a cute dress and tights.

See? Muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch better! Poor Raelynn. We'll have to train her daddy on how to match clothing. Her grandma is already a lost cause of course.


  1. Dads always dress their little girls in t-shirts and sweats...what's so wrong with that...?

    Tights are always too hard to get on };-)

    Funny stuff! I remember those idyllic days

  2. Except for maybe the pink dots, the out fit is cute. Give him a break. He was half asleep, and you were sleeping. I know about MIL's outfits, but the pink, red & white, was no big deal. I've said my peace.
