It's actually chilly outside! I absolutely love it! The only downside is that I have no idea what the munchkins are going to wear since they seem bound and determined to keep growing every year, thus making all of last year's warm clothes useless. I have already added a wardrobe's worth of sweatshirts and pants to the giveaway pile. It appears that W, the world's tallest 5 year old, has actually grown considerably since being the world's tallest 4 yr old. It looks like he now needs a size 7 pants - maybe an eight. He also refuses to wear pants that button - only snaps or elastic. Dressing him reminds me of Meg Ryan ordering food in When Harry Met Sally. "No buttons, please. These don't feel good. Not enough pockets. I need to put my pants on BEFORE my shirt. No long sleeves under a sweatshirt - that doesn't FEEL GOOD." He's just a little particular.
Well - Princess Poopie is waking up, so it's time to run. More later.....
It seems, as is so often the case with me, everyone had the same idea. I spent most of my day searching in vain for long khaki pants in little boy sizes. I kept running into other moms - some I knew, some I didn't - who were all doing the same thing. We compared notes and came to the conclusion there were none to be found. Let me tell you, Target could have made a killing on khakis today - as could Old Navy. I did manage to find a few things for the Princess, including some new shoes she was thrilled with. So, at least only 2/3 of my children will be inappropriately dressed for the fall/winter - as brief as it may be.
