Well, if you ask me, Style.
We walked into Gymboree (*btw it’s Gymbucks redemption time) and my heart does a little flip flop when I opened the door.
Mommy. In. Lust.
I go straight to the swimsuit there on the bottom and Charlotte goes straight to the seat in the back to watch tv.
We both know our place.
And then I start to notice that all the really cute stuff in the line is ‘baby girl’. Now for Gymboree, ‘baby girl’ is size 5T and under, ‘kid girl’ is 3-12. I want my baby to still look like a little girl. I mean, she is a little girl. She just doesn’t fit those sizes anymore.
I hate that she has to wear the older styles just because she is a bigger kid. While some of the differences are slight in the shirts, in the swimsuits the difference is 1 to 2 pieces.
I don’t want her wearing a bikini.
And in the dresses, the baby girl goes from like an easy step in and zip up, to a criss cross back that she cant figure out on her own. Those harder-to-get-on clothing frustrate her and she just wont like something as a result. Not that I blame her.
Not every child is the same size and just because they are a size 6, doesn’t mean they are 6.
Nonetheless, the stuff is adorable if you have a kid 5T and under.
(for the record, I felt like a criminal taking these pictures)
Of course when it comes down to it, no matter what I love, if Charlotte is with me, I let her pick her own things.
Although I tried to talk her into some other shorts…she stuck to her guns.
She settled on this giraffe shirt from the Glamor Safari line and matching khaki shorts and socks, and I would show you them, but she insists on wearing this tutu skirt every where we go (from Target, best $10 I ever spent)…so there ya have it.
Do you have a problem finding clothing that is not only the right size, but the right look for their age? Maybe I’m just a prude when it comes to my daughter.
And she isn’t dating till she’s married.
