How you know it’s time to vary your wardrobe

Okay, so I wear pants about 98% of the time.  It’s not that I dislike skirts — I actually like wearing them very much — but since my day usually involves standing in front of a classroom for hours and then going home and kicking a soccer ball around the lawn with the boys, I find that trousers are just more practical.  So those dresses in my closet don’t get a lot of airtime.

But a week or so ago, I was getting ready to go meet my mom, grandmother and aunt for afternoon tea.  It was a nice enough day to wear a springy green dress and high-heeled sandals.  I emerged from the bedroom in my fresh, oh-so-feminine ensemble.

Matthew, who was eating lunch,  glanced up from his plate.  “Mommy, you look nice,” he said.  He looked curiously at my dress.  “What’s that thing called?”
