Are there shorts under your dress?
Why do I always have to wear shorts?
Because, it's no fun to sit like a lady.
"Sitting like a lady" sucks. It pretty much rules out swinging, running, climbing trees, jumping on trampolines, summersaults, cart wheels, and sitting indian-style during circle time at school.
If you let your daughter wear a dress or skirt without shorts and still participate in all these activities - just think of all the people who have seen her panties.
Ainsley often skirts the shorts by wearing pants. Which is way funky cool.
