Default Dress codes - too complicated?

True Story .... this past weekend, we were in Rochester, NY for a shopping trip.

I was drying my daughter's hair and sent my 3 year old son off to get ready for dinner. He rummaged through his suit case and came back and asked "Mommy, is tonight a fancy night or a casual night". I told him he could just wear his jeans. But he pressed further, "but Mommy, is tonight a casual night, are you sure my jeans are okay?". I replied, "yes, it's casual night tonight".

A few minutes later, my husband gets back to the hotel room and asks if he has to change for dinner, and my son replies, "It's okay Daddy, tonight is a casual night, so what you are wearing is fine."

Who says dress codes are complicated? Even my 3 year old gets it!


And yes, you know your kids are spoiled when at age 3 they think of dressing up in terms of cruising dress codes!

Funny, how a child understands the dress code over some of the adults, I love it! I think we tend to make it more complicated that is actually is, truly, not a big deal.

They aren't spoiled, they're well traveled! What a wonderful little guy you have and how great that your children are being exposed to travel at an early age !

I wasn't as lucky, but I'm enjoying it now !

Fern, as their mother, I can honestly say that they are spoiled! DH and I certainly did not grow up with silver spoons in our mouths. DH had a hard life, and I was blessed with a father who gave us the best possible life he could afford. We struggle between spoiling our kids and teaching them hardships. Our comprimise is to, as much as possible, teach them to be grateful for the lifestyle we can afford to live. We try to teach them that we we have comes from Mommy and Daddy working very hard and saving our money. We do worry sometimes that we give them too much.
