As a general rule, I loathe logo T-shirts. They’re brash and in-your-face. I don’t want Daisy to be have Elsa or Cinderella plastered across her front. There’s just one problem, Daisy loves them. With a passion.
I discovered this to my detriment when a friend of mine gave Daisy a pair of My Little Pony tops from H&M for her birthday. Admittedly, she gave me some warning with a text on the day. “Daisy will love her present, you will hate it”. She was right. I had no idea that Daisy was going to wear those tops every day that she possibly could. For months and months.
Various thoughts have gone through my head. Should I hide them, keep them in the laundry or even throw them away? But I am not a mean mother, and I couldn’t do any of them. So I shut up and put up.
Anyway, the good news is that their life span is coming to an end. They have holes in the sleeves and are starting to get a little on the small side. I can finally breathe a sigh of relief (until the next birthday). I have even gone as far as to replace, yes replace, them with, what I consider to be a ‘cool’ version. Next do a washed out, retro My Little Pony T-shirt, which I actually don’t mind at all.
Which brings me to my next point. Some logo T-shirts can be cool. If they’re retro or vintage-looking, they work for me. Daisy has a striped Mini Boden T-shirt with a rainbow splashed across it, which sadly they no longer do, and we both love it. I’ve also just ordered her a Little Bird by Jools, Jools Oliver’s range for Mothercare, 70s-style rainbow long-sleeved top which will be great with jeans in the winter.
Now all I have to do is get Daisy out of leggings and into jeans…
