    What are you, Alix: a hobbit? (Anyone remember that “Lord of the Rings” scene to which I am referring?)

    the Blues – always faithful, always work – wonder why women (of all ages) take so much time for such a simple decision. Given the maxim “When in doubt – go blue” – applies for clothes and …. life :)

    School uniforms? Maybe not a bad idea!

    I wish I could find blue clothing. Everything is either weird colors or black.

    Uniforms! That way you know what you’ll be wearing every day and you can concentrate on more important things, like getting an education.

    One of the downsides of motherhood, the stubborn teenage girl.

    Girls get away with whatever they can, even with uniforms. They’ll wear the skirt too short, pile on makeup, and/or use jewellery to stand out.

    That’s why administrators provide students/parents with a school handbook with rules. A watch, one pair of knob earrings on girls only, skirts below the knee, one class ring (if you have it) and definitely no make-up, hair extensions/wigs or hair colour.! But that’s just here (Bahamas). Uniforms are good training for ‘real life’ when you have to dress a certain way and follow appropriate behaviour..

    Our son’s school had a uniform. There was a tie that the boys could wear if they wanted — none of ’em did. The girls, however, quickly adopted the tie, very loosely tied, with the white blouse. The school finally changed the rules so that it was an allowed combination. I think they did it because it was just adorable on them.

    If you plan on being a corporate drone.

    Public school my children went to had no dress code nor did my children have a lot of clothes too chose from.

    @Kab Buch

    Very nice! Thanks. Why is it so hard to pick out clothes the night before?

    My daughter sees that the older girls have picked out their clothes the night before. She has me make sure that the six-year old sleeps in her clothes, to forestall a morning battle. I also line up her shoes to match, and socks. We trust the boy not to pull together something too weird. I resigned from getting up early to get them ready in the morning. . . .

    I like it better in the book. Still good scene.
