We recently received a hand-me-down fleece that I love — it’s very bright and stripey — but it may already be too small for Zoe and Lucy. I’ve been trying to get Zoe to try it on for weeks — just try it on — so I can pass it on if necessary. But she refuses every time, no matter what kind of mood she’s in when I ask.
Finally tonight I got her to try it on. (Basically it did fit, but the sleeves were a bit short.)
“What do you think Zoe?” I ask.
“It’s too small. We need to give it to Baby Tess.”
“You don’t like stripes very much, do you?” I ask her.
“Nope. I only like stripes on Zebras.”
