Basically: clothes + 3-yr old ≠ clothed child
I play games, I hold her when she cries, I try to make socks going on fun, but I finally get to: "On the count of 3, you're going to put this on or I am." She has told me recently, she hates this phrase. What's a father to do? Muscle on the clothes or use more strategic means? Helpful hints in the comments - please - I'm begging.
Having accumulated sage advice both online and off, I just wanted to say I haven't used any of the techniques suggested (yet). Today, as Frankie was talking on her play phone, I took the outfit I layed out the night before and simply put it on with absolutely no resistance. I will, however, keep all your suggestions in mind when the going gets tough. Thanks all.
