One of the things that I remember very clearly from my days of teaching at the university level is the ubiquity of Ugg boots and sweatpants as the midwinter uniform of the female college freshman in early morning classes.
And then the other day, I looked at Margaret coming down the stairs, and realized that she was a very, very precocious young woman.
But she's very cute, and for that one, brief moment, was wearing pants, so I didn't want to pick a fight over the boots.
We have, however, clearly passed the point where I can pick out her clothes for her. I think we'll send her to a school that has a uniform policy.
