Honey Nut Cheerios Hearty Oat Crunch Cereal - Try it FREE!

When my daughter was only 18-months old, she began picking out her own clothes to wear!  This was incredible to me, as I remember my own mother dressing me in my brother's hand-me-down clothes--and I was content.  At 18-months old not only did my daughter begin picking out her own clothes, she also began discarding my own clothing selections.  Her method was simple: whatever clothing I had laid out for her that day, she would unceremoniously throw over her shoulder, and then make a "proper" selection.

BEFORE: The Turtle Shirt
I was only slightly surprised when my daughter began shopping online for clothing (with me) at age 2-years old.  Her system was straight forward: as I browsed online for her new clothes, she would pick her favourite items.  I learned very quickly that if I selected the clothing for my daughter, she just would never wear the item.  Enter the sparkly pink turtle t-shirt with princess sleeves, shown above.
The Famous Turtle Shirt!
When my daughter was 2-years old, she asked for me to buy her the turtle t-shirt.  Although it was too big for her, she started wearing the turtle shirt right away.  One year later, the shirt was just the right size.  It fit my daughter well for two glorious years.  Although the turtle shirt was tiny on her, my daughter continued wearing it for an additional 1 year, although I hid it high up on a closet shelf.  The body of the shirt stretched to accommodate her, but the truth was the shirt was just too short.
Long Live the Turtle Dress!
AFTER: The Turtle Dress
Not wishing for my daughter to retire her favourite turtle t-shirt, I decided to have it upcycled into a turtle dress!  We went to the fabric store, where my daughter picked out some fabric for the skirt portion of the dress.  Then I called on a seamstress to make the t-shirt dress into a reality.  My daughter was delighted, and the turtle dress has been going strong for a full year!  It's amazing that a favourite t-shirt could last for 5+ years, and illustrates that old favourites can still evolve stronger over time!
