It's Not Fair! (Five Reasons I Have Shopping Envy)

Spring is finally here. It's not shorts and t-shirt weather yet, but I know that spring and fall in New England are volatile enough where we need to have clothes at the ready for both 30 degree days and 80 degree days.

Reagan is all set. She's such a peanut that she can wear clothes that Madison wore two summers ago, and thank goodness for that.  I know I should feel bad for her, but now the clothes she's inheriting aren't quite so ... stained. She has quite the closet full of cute stuff that still looks great.

Madison was not all set.  There is no way she'll fit into her clothes from last summer.  Therefore, we've had some shopping to do.  We hit the mall on Sunday, and today, we went to the outlets.  With the exception of a few sets of pjs, and maybe some dressier outfits, we now have the basics covered.

Unpacking her purchases, I realized I am jealous. Super jealous.  When it comes to clothes, this kid has got it made!


5. Every season, the kid gets a new wardrobe. No questions asked. I'm not saying I want to do a complete overhaul every season, but man, it would be nice to have that option.

4. She looks cute in everything. Bright colors? Adorable. Classic little girl? Adorable. Funky? Adorable.  I mean, I realize I'm probably biased, but the kid looks adorable in anything.  There are plenty of looks I can't pull off, but my kid manages to make jeggings look cute.

3. A full wardrobe replacement didn't clean out our bank account. Cute, durable clothes are cheap (or not cheap at all - cough, Gymboree, cough - but coupons and sale racks make them feel cheap. I wish I could get myself a complete wardrobe for the amount I paid for hers.

2. Growing out of your clothes is a cause for celebration. Yay! You are such a big girl now! You need big girl clothes because you grew SO MUCH!!!  When my clothes are too small, it is not good news.


1. Elastic waistbands.  Adjustable elastic waistbands.  With absolutely no judgment.

Anyone else suddenly realize that your toddlers have it pretty darn good?
