Cuteness Interlude

Is this sweater not the cutest thing ever?

Think I'm going to start counting up my spare change. . . !

Yeah--http://www.hannaandersson.com/, http://www.cwdkids.com/, or The Wooden Soldier catalogue (800-375-6002)are great places that make me consider blowing the food budget on just a few really great outfits. They don't have clearances--bummer for me!

I know! This is where grandmas come in handy. I'll have to check out those other websites soon...or maybe I'm too scared to look!

You know, I didn't have this cuteness problem before I had a girl. Don't get me wrong, my boy is adorable, but boy clothes as such just aren't, well, sickeningly cute! And pink! Personally, I can't stand pink, I've never been a girly-girl myself, but I see something pink like that sweater and my fingers start tingling to type in credit card numbers!

Fun, though.

I'm pregnant now and will be having a boy this time. Wooden Soldier is a catalog that features matching family outfits (at an average of $100 or more apiece). I would just love to get a portrait of all the kids with matching outfits. They also have matching clothes across sizes. My step-daughter is 13 (way too old to match her little sisters anyway) and when she was 10, my two were 5 and 2.5. I so wanted to have them coordinate.

Where do these crazy urges come from? I hated that kind of stuff before I became a parent.

Congrats on your pregnancy! Boys are cool, they are great. They have really really neat toys (I was never into Barbie or anything like that as a little girl).

There must be a switch that gets flipped after the first baby is born that makes you want cute clothes. Even my husband was affected by it--he didn't see why we needed baby clothes at all until our son came out and my husband put that first little outfit on and then apologized shamelessly for teasing me about all the cute baby outfits!

I'll have to check out the Wooden Soldier some more--it's been difficult to do matching outfits across genders, at least for someone as fashion-handicapped as I.
