Case in point.
Sunday I decided to take a little time to shop. Morgan Kate was napping and Trav was watching football. Good time to slip out for an hour or so. I made my way straight to Old Navy, as I had heard they were having super sales. I spent a few minutes looking at things for myself and then proceeded to the children's section. There were so many cute things. Oh. My. Goodness. Cute, cute, cute things. Shopping for Morgan Kate is usually so much fun and I sometimes have to stop myself before things get out of hand. However, today was a little different.
As I was looking through the clothes and trying to determine which size to buy (which has always been an issue for me), I noticed their tags. Let me back up for one quick second and just say that I have never been able to go into any store and buy the clothing size that correlates with MK's age. At twelve months of age, we weren't picking out twelve month clothes. Instead we were looking through six month clothes. Until recently she was usually right about six months behind in clothes sizes. These days, we are almost an entire year behind in size. And that brings me to my most recent dilemma. Old Navy's 12 - 18 month clothes read: 29- 31" and 22-27 lbs. Their 18 - 24 month clothes read: 31-33" and 27 - 30 lbs. Morgan Kate happens to be 31.5 inches tall, meaning length wise she would need the 18-24 month clothes. And she does. Almost all of the 12 - 18 month clothes are too short. However, she only weighs 22.5 lbs, meaning she just hits the weight requirements for the 12 - 18 month clothes. The 18 - 24 month clothes just fall straight off of her. It's ridiculous.
Anyway, I realize that I could just shop somewhere else and I could find clothes that would most likely fit. But, I love Old Navy and I love their clothes and I just think their children's stuff is super cute. I guess for now I'll just stick to their dresses - they do seem to work!
And by the way, I am laughing at myself right now for even writing all of this. Of all the things I have going on right now and need to give time and thought power to, and I am caught up in this so -called fashion dilemma. Oh well, at least it makes me laugh! Hopefully you get a chuckle too!
