I was going to let Piper wear some shorts this week, now that it’s getting warm, but I couldn’t. The entire wardrobe of clothes I bought last fall for this summer does. not. fit.
The tags to Carter’s and Gymboree’s clothes clearly state that their size 3-6 month clothes begin at 12 1/2 pounds. Therefore, Piper’s 3 month clothes should be very snug, if not outgrown, now that she’s a little over 12 1/2 pounds. And those 3-6 month clothes should, at the very least, be fake-able.
I wonder if I could sue for false advertisement.
Could you please explain to my why I just spent my whole day before last (and many days before that) completing an exhaustive search of every store in town that I could think of for 3 month denim shorts???
Apparently three month olds don’t need denim shorts, because they sure as heck don’t make them. Anywhere.
Except for Carter’s. I love having their outlet relatively close, because sometimes they’re the only option.
Miraculously, they did have several pair of non-cotton gym shorts in 3 month sizes. I was so excited. And they were even on clearance. She got brown, khaki, denim, and pink (surprise).
I was so excited that she had to wear a pair today.
My reward for my steadfasted shopping experience?
Shorts that are still way too big. And no, the elastic is not stretched. This is just the extra fabric.
Her knees? No where to be found.
Her bottom? Also, no where to be found.
My sanity? Well, the only thing keeping that within reach is the prospect that her 3-6 month shorts, the many pair of 3-6 month shorts that were purchased last year, should fit fine for next summer.
