All By Myself

Margaret is getting to be a rather independent person these days.  She is stubborn (strong-willed?) and wants things to be done the way she thinks they should be done.

One of the ways that this will has manifested itself lately is in the choice of adornment for her person.

Those of you who knew me when I was a small child can laugh at this.  But she has decided that unless someone offers her a pretty good reason why she ought to do differently, she is going to wear a dress every day.  She might -- might -- be willing to stretch a point and wear a skirt, but for the most part, she wants to be in a dress all the time.  She also has opinions as to sunglasses, shoes, coats, hats, mittens, scarves, etc.  It's an adventure.

But she's also getting way better at getting herself into and out of her own clothes, which is both a blessing and a curse.

Here she is wrestling with some shoes.

It was also cold and rainy and getting on for dark, so the sunglasses were not particularly necessary.  But, you know, so stylish.
