Dress to Impress Poll
Posted by 32 on
Here in Florida there’s almost never an occasion for long sleeves. My son has two long-sleeved pajamas that didn’t get returned after the baby shower, and those are for when he gets out of the bath and into the air conditioning. The real deciding factor, just like for grown-ups, is who we’ll be seeing that day. For the doctor or running errands with me, he’s in a smart-looking collared shirt and khaki shorts. A trip to grandma and grandpa’s house calls for something they gave him, most of which has cutesy jungle animals on them. Hanging with our musician friends from pre-parenthood days, when being up at three AM involved drinking beer rather than feeding the baby? Guitar shirt and jean shorts. I was surprised the company for the day wasn’t on the list of factors.
I opt for practical – is it weather appropriate? Does it meet daycare’s dress code? – and then have a cute touch.
Although now that she’s 2.5 yrs old I’m finding that I have less and less say in the matter, especially about shoes. (Today she wore a pair of black Mary Janes that are a bit narrow for her foot, but as they don’t violate the dress code and she can put them on herself, I don’t complain.)
I love dressing my son up in “cool” rock star shirts and whatnot. I would love to see rockabye baby band tees… Like the cute bears on the album covers… On shirts and onesies. I would go on a shopping frenzy then. =)
My 9 month old is just over 25 pounds…
My chubby little babe can almost fill my pre-pregnancy tops! Seriously impressive appetite.
Whatever we didn’t have to pay for.
