Wardrobe Wednesday

When Princess was very little, I wasn't so good at keeping my obsessiveness issues to myself. I guess it still may happen, but at least now I'm more aware of it. I spend so much time trying to make my feet soft and callous free, I thought that if I kept Princess from going outside without shoes, she would never have the challenge of calloused feet. Is that not the most ridiculous thing you've ever heard?! I know!!

As I embrace this radical unschooling life, I work really hard to not dump my issues on Princess. I just stopped trying to control the shoe thing. Of course, she had begun to develop her own issues and wouldn't go outside without shoes. Ugh. What did I do?

When I learned to stop interfering, I just let it go. Now Princess can often be found barefoot, exploring the backyard, running around Village Home and on warm days, she can be found just about everywhere barefoot. The other day, on our Fairy House shopping trip, she wanted to go into the store barefoot. I wasn't sure whether the store would be okay with it, so I told her to act like she had shoes on. ;-P

Does that make this "lack of Wardrobe Wednesday"?

Now head on over to our Wardrobe Wednesday sponsor, Aliceson, at Feet Off the Table and see what all the cool kids are wearing!


  1. Love it. With your devotion to supporting and encouraging your daughter's clothing choices, it might be more apt to call it a peacedrobe rather than a wardrobe. ; )

    Great pics!


  2. I love barefoot kids. A great part of summer for sure.

  3. Now that's funny, VHSF!!! You totally crack me up!

    It is a great part of summer, Secret Mom. Glad I finally realized it!
