Fall is Here


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.

  1. and HELLO! did they forget we need long sleeve polos (white and navy!) as well? What, they just sell uniforms in August and wrap it up after that? The buyers for those stores obviously don't have uniform wearing children do they?
