Have I mentioned Naomi loves dresses? In fact, a sure fire way to get Naomi to throw a tantrum is to try and dress her in something other than a dress.

Yesterday, I got an email from our town announcing that signups for pee wee soccer were now open. I was excited because it'll be the first event she's old enough to do, and classes are at 6:30pm on Mondays, meaning I could actually get home early enough to do this.

When Austin got home he asked me what Naomi would wear while playing soccer....and thus ended my excitement.

I decided to broach the subject with Naomi. Here's how the conversation went.
"Hey Naomi, do you want to take summer soccer?"
"Ok, great. We'll sign you up. It'll be so cool, you'll get to wear cool shorts and sneakers..."
"No, I want to wear a pretty dress."
"Ok but hon, you have to wear shorts or pants while you're playing soccer..."
"I don't want to play soccer."

I'm not giving up though!

From Naomi 34 months, Mikaela 3 months

Haha, that would be funny to see her playing soccer in a pretty dress. Although, I don't think she'd be happy when it got all muddy.
