Kaylieann Steinbach, 3, was gearing up for picture day at her preschool in Rocklin, California. Her dad, Austin, carefully picked three outfits for her to choose from.
But Kaylieann refused to wear all three. Instead, she opted for an outfit of her own choosing — but not just any outfit.
Austin was not offended by his daughter’s refusal to wear the clothes he picked out, nor was he surprised. He and his wife Jami have always encouraged their daughter to be as independent as possible, and she’s known to head off to school dressed up in fun costumes.
After receiving Kaylieann’s hilarious school photo, Austin couldn’t help but post it on Reddit for all to see. He and Jami were shocked by how quickly the unexpected image went viral.
Austin and Jami also soon revealed that Kaylieann is 75 percent deaf in both ears. Her confidence and individuality has garnered much support from the deaf community.
