DD is always a bit different - she could take all her clothes off early! She can do knickers and trousers is I remind her that the label goes at the back iyswim She can do tops, but not shirts / small buttons. She is ust three.
dd couldn't do socks until the week she went to school - was my major stress at the time!
Ds - 3.5 can do everything apart from buttons and laces - has been able to for a few months. He is far more independant than dd who would still like me to dress her every morning. Can/will are 2 different things!
Ds is 2 1/2 and is steadfastly refusing to even try to learn to dress or undress himself. He just says "mummy do it" to everything except socks. Discovered today that the little monkey happily removes shoes, socks and coat and has a good go at putting them back on again at nursery! btw tights are difficult, have you tried putting them on when drunk
LOL @ back to front dungarees, my dp puts nappies on inside out and back to front (cloth ones). My ds1 is going to be four in march. He can do all clothes but struggles with socks. It takes him about six hours to get dressed, as it is essential to jump on the sofa, fight with his brother, play with every toy in the house and go for sixty wees inbetween.
DD is 2.7 and is a whizz at taking stuff off (always has been) and getting better at putting stuff on as long as she is reminded that the bows/buttons/picture goes at the front - not so good at long sleeved tops but she is getting there with practise.
DD is 3 and puts both legs into same trouser leg, knicker leg etc. Always gets one arm through the neck hole of tops. Can take everything off, although she often gets stuck with her top round her back.
Trouble is the mornings are just so rushed that it's hard to take the time to do things slowly with her.
My DD2 is 4 (5 in Dec) and dresses/undresses herself well, but it always makes me smile now she's at school. You can always tell when they have had a PE lesson as they come home with cardigans on inside out, shoes on wrong foot etc.
thank goodness for this thread - DS is 2.5 but shows no interest in element of dressing/undressing himself. He can jsut about manage to pull down a pair or tracksuit/PJ trousers, that's it. I can see no point in potty training him until he can at least do trousers, surely?
