Why she won't wear pants at home is a mystery. She's so busy you would think pants would be helpful.
We now have rules like "everyone wears pants to dinner". This is not a statement I thought I'd ever have to utter. "Keep your pants on please." That is something I think every wife says from time to time, but setting a rule about wearing pants at the table is not what I expected from parenting.
We use the super exciting Elmo underwear to keep her from stripping out of the diaper too. I thought I would explain why there are underpants over a diaper. Don't judge me...you try to manage an almost 2 year old.
And yes, she is calling herself "Lucia". That's what the teachers and kids at daycare call her. I don't really mind, because she knows how to say Lucy and she responds to Lucy. I have made it clear that they can call her Lucia, but when writing her name it will be L-u-c-y. Hopefully this is only a phase, but when I drop her off in the morning the other kids call out in excitement "Lucia is here! Lucia is here!" I wonder if they are a bit envious that names like Lily, Connor, Zoe and Mason don't have Spanish equivalents.
