What To Do When Your Toddler De-Clothes…


Seriously, I am asking. WHAT THE HELL DO YOU DO?!

For about a month now, we have been having issues with getting and staying dressed. Mornings usually consist of me exerting all my daily energy into just getting her dressed. Then followed by the ripping off of said clothes I spent a good 10 minutes trying to put on. Oh, and how could I forget the 20 minute long tantrum that follows. Now, it’s not every day, but its about 5 of the 7 days of the week. This is stuff that drives mom’s to drink bottles of wine to the head.

The newest thing is now she has figured out a way to take all her clothes off as well as the diaper. Ehhhh is she prepping us for a future career as a stripper?? For the love of God, say it ain’t so.

Today while I was preparing dinner, I had to run into the front room to grab something and left my toddler for not even a minute. I came back to the kitchen to find this:

A crumpled up romper and a diaper about 4 feet away. Sigh.

Obviously, I know this is just one of the wonderful phases of a toddler (ahh-hem the cursing phase) and she is not practicing for a career that entitles her to earn dolla bills, but how am I supposed to keep this kid dressed?

Any and every piece of advice is greatly appreciated because I don’t think I can handle another mid-day show.
