Colorful

OKAY, NEW PLAN!

For about two weeks now, Mila's preschool has been having "color days." That's to say, they assign a particular color to each day and go all in on celebrating that color. They wear clothes with that color, they eat snacks that match, and they spend the whole day worshiping that particular shade of the rainbow. It's all very exciting if you happen to be a four-year old named Mila who loves a good party.

The best part is the "wear clothes that color." IT IS AMAZING. While it was a little challenging to find something orange or brown in Mila's closet on those days, there was no fighting! For two weeks, she has gotten dressed in the morning without making me roll my eyes 246913413 times!

It's so magical.

So, here's what we're going to do. We're going to fake like color days are continuing. It may become a permanent thing, even. I'm sure high school-aged Mila will be delighted to be told it's "Blue Day" and she should wear something blue. Even if she's not, I don't care because it's making my life SO much easier right now. We haven't fought about shoes. She's gotten dressed within minutes of being told to get dressed. She's in a hurry to get out of the house so she can show her friends that she has the right color on. Suddenly, the kid acts like she has places to be!

Don't anybody tell her when we cross into the fake color days. It would ruin my fun.
