outfit of the day(bird): i love you for always


skirt, tights ~ Marshalls
flannel ~ swap
shoes ~ thrifted
necklace ~ F21
bracelets ~ vintage, thrifted
my son is at an age where he always thinks he's right and he always knows that i am wrong. it doesn't matter if i tell him the sky is blue, i am wrong. last week was a particularly challenging week for me with him. and yes, just for me...he seems to take it out on me the most. i guess he knows i will always love him, even if he's being a jerk.
so last week, we dropped him off at school, i said "i love you" like i do every day, and he shot me a dirty look and ran away. so i opened my window and yelled "i love you henry!!!" at the top of my lungs. he didn't appreciate it. i didn't care.
that evening, i told him that no matter how mad at someone he is, he always has to say i love you back. and i told him that the next time he pulled that stunt on me, that i would get out of the car and sing that i love him in my best opera voice.
so....(you see where this is going??) the next morning, i kissed him and said, "i love you". he turned around, smiled his best mischievous smile, and ran away.
i had no choice.
i did it.
i'm guessing he will be telling me he loves me from now on. even when he's mad.
xo,
megan bird

  1. :) Love this story! My oldest son went through that same phrase. Wish I'd have thought of this back then! I adore your infusion of flannel into this super-cute look. And, that skirt is fab! Hugs, T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  2. That is hilarious! I swear that embarrassment is sometimes the best form of punishment. Kayla and I butt heads all the time too. Since I am the mom I get crapped on the most. I may have to do the singing to her at some point, ha ha!

    This outfit is pretty fabulous too. That skirt is sweet!

  5. I love that you did that! That's so awesome. Avery hasn't gotten there yet. I'm guessing boys get to the "I'm embarrassed by you" stage first? But I'm sure it's coming! I hope I'm as awesome as you about it. :)

    And I love. your. skirt.

  12. LMAO Mom for the win!!! I have had this same conversation with my daughter and oldest son (aka my mischief makers). Next time, I'm gonna try this too! My 13 year old would be PISSED. Worth it.

    Also, is this your wedding craft in the background? Score! Way to go with the reusing! I love it and I also love your grunge outfit today. The skirt is awesome and perfect for a bad ass mama like yourself!

  14. I may copy your outfit for my day and night gig. Love this. My SIL would always make her kids hug after fighting and say I am sorry and then reply, I forgive you. I think she would do this to her kids too!

  26. That is so funny!! Fortunately for me, my 14 year old son still says he loves me too. I'm betting that wouldn't be the case if I said in front of his friends though. :-) Loving the quilted leather skirt. :-)
