"Oh, I thought those were for like pigtails."Braun, who also has a 10-year-old son named Riley, says this isn't her husband's first time committing a fashion fail.
"He's dressed her funny numerous times — and it makes my day," Braun explained. "He's sent her in swim shirts, tiny play shorts meant for under her dresses, completely opposite patterned shirts and pants and numerous times in a pajama shirt or pants."
"I love it," Braun added. "He makes me smile every day."
Don't clip your child's wings. Your toddler's mission in life is to gain independence. So when she's developmentally capable of putting her toys away, clearing her plate from the table, and dressing herself, let her. Giving a child responsibility is good for her self-esteem (and your sanity!).
Braun shared a screen shot of their text exchange, and the post has gone viral. More than 60,000 people have shared it, with several moms tagging their husbands to let them know this sounds like something they, too, would do.So what did little Elsa think of her fashion misstep?
"Elsa didn't even notice it," said Braun. "She said thought it was hat as well... If it wasn't very small and meant for an infant or newborn tush, I'd definitely try the pigtails with it."
