Character determines wardrobe

A writer’s blog should include an occasional quote. Here’s mine today:

When my granddaughter Erin was three, her grandmother gave her three dresses on one day.

She liked the dresses so much she wore all three for three days, including to bed.

Erin is five now.  She has, shall I say, an extensive wardrobe. Everything she wears is chosen with complete authority.  Any suggestion by others is met with a polite but firm dismissal. 

This morning her dad is bringing her to Seattle to attend our longstanding Superbowl party.  As she was getting dressed – in something festive I’m sure, she turned to her dad and said, “How come grandpa changes his clothes, but he always looks the same?”
