We need to get moving.

It’s already late.

Are you still lazing around?

Rise and shine!


9. Clothing and getting dressed:


onesie = a common type of clothing for babies, that is one piece, and snap buttons around the legs

ponytail = long girl’s (usually not boy’s) hair, tied together but still hanging down

pigtail = long girl’s hair braided and hanging down

sneakers/ tennis shoes = shoes used for athletic activities

party dress = a fancy girl’s dress that she’d wear to a party

Sunday best = more formal clothes children have, that they’d wear to formal family functions (weddings, funerals) or, in religious families, to attend services

barrette = clip worn in girl’s hair to keep it in place

panties = underwear pants worn by girls

snowsuit = suit covering the entire body (except head) for going out in very cold weather or snow, often worn over another set of clothes

booties = just about any soft shoe worn by babies. Although it’s a diminutive of “boots”, which are higher around the ankles than regular shoes, a lot of things that people call “booties” aren’t really like this

velcro = a kind of closure for clothing or shoes where the two pieces just stick together when you press them together; to open you just pull them apart

bobby pins = hair pins worn by girls
