We have matching nursing gowns, too.

I went bad to jeans and haven't looked back too much. I have been absolutely blacklisted by those people (whose children were among my children's closest friends), and they won't have anything to do with me.

So, not so much with dresses and skirts for me. It seems like cult behavior around here. I'm not saying anything about anyone here, please understand. This has been my experience and my heartbreak.
Wow! Was this for religious reasons? What a shame that your so-called friends were so judgemental!

Oh man. I am denying my daughter's sexuality? Here I thought I was keeping her legs warm.

I don't have any daughters, but when or if I do I will let them wear whatever they want (within reason, no Brittney Spears look alike clothing ect.) Dh went to a private Christian school where all of the girls were required to wear long skirts. When I pointed out how sexist that was to him he didn't get it. He said "Well the boys had to wear dress pants." I tried to explain how much more restrictive to movement, esspecially for children, a dress is than pants. I still don't think he gets it.

I never wear skirts or dresses. I have thought it would be nice to have a few gypsy skirts, but I like to wear t-shirts, and T-shirts just look better with jeans than skirts.

Mine does the same. She is a complete tomboy and will NOT wear pants or shorts to save her life. She freaks out completely when I even HINT at wearing pants. I hate, hate, hate dresses and skirts. BLEK, GAG, YUCK, VOMIT.

But what can I do?

And about her panties showing...she says, "mommy EVERYONE wears panties!"

To further what Angelbee has said. My girl runs jumps, digs in sand, climbs up in the treehouse, rides a bike, dances, and wrestles in her dresses. She is amazing. No hinderence here.

Here all schools have uniforms and all the uniforms are skirts (for girls). In my childhood in Canada I wore skirts quite often, came here at 12 and was forced to wear a skirt everyday to school and as a result I pretty much never wore a skirt again once I left school.
DD loves clothes and I am afraid she is gonna be a serious girly-girl

OK, I'm really baffled.

Is this an American thing? Southern?

Are there truly people here who only dress girls in dresses? Can someone explain?

And sorry to be dense, but are there truly mdc mamas who do this? Or is this a wind up?

Confused..............

Well, I know some religious groups so this. I had a woman approach me in a supermarket and tell me I should put my daughter in dresses like Hannah in the bible.

I don't know what she meant, and haven't looked it up. Does anyone know?

My daughter wears whatever she chooses. Of course, I pick out all of her clothes at the shop and don't buy anything I find inappropriate... I will say she will change clothes a bazillion times a day if I let her... : I, OTOH, prefer long skirts as they hide my post five baby body (for the most part) and are quite comfy. But, before kids, I would live in jeans. I don't like dressing up and wearing clothing that I find uncomfortable... sooooo, I dress for comfort and style is totally secondary.

Besides, my family has already pigeonholed me as a hippie, so I need to look the part, eh?

What an odd comment. I mean, all the women in Bible times wore dresses. Then again, so did the men...

Pants in public? Eeeeeek.

I don't have any living girls, so is it bad if in total desperation, I put my 17 month old in a dress? You can only dress your cats up so much before they start running when they see you coming! OK, 2 glasses of wine is probably too much for me! :LOL

Dresses are not inheirantly restrictive--- they are simply restrictive when you "realize" that you are not supposed to ever show your panties.
