Spring is almost here, or so the calendar tells me. The weather, on the other hand, keeps screaming WINTER IS NEVER GOING AWAY. Every year around February, and early March, I go through the kids’ clothing. It’s not fun, nor do I love it, but it’s necessary for me to do this horribly boring task. If I don’t, my daughter ends up with pants that are so short, they could all be considered Capri pants, or Petal Pushers. There are years we get lucky, and Little Miss just needs a couple of things.
I’m here to tell you, this is not one of those “lucky” years. The kid sprouted up like a damn weed. However, as luck would have it, a new Carter’s sprung up in the area. We headed there to check out the spring line featuring sizes 3-7 at Carter’s. Obviously she’s not fitting into a 3….but The Boy, sometimes fits into a 3. Yes, he just turned 5. Sue me, I’ve got petite kids. Have you seen me? There’s really no hope for them!
Surprisingly, I had a lot of trouble not buying the entire store. The cuteness factor on not just the girl’s side, but the boy’s side, was beyond my expectations. My daughter found dress, after dress, after dress for herself.
The boy’s side had my head spinning. SPINNING.
My budget was $50, or that’s the budget I told my husband I was sticking to. I even pulled out my 20% off coupon to show him I was truly going to stick to my budget. Normally, I’m super good about coming out well under budget. Every once in a while, I splurge. It’s allowed, when you find amazing goodies for the kids!
I’m not saying I went over the budget. Not am I saying I came under the budget. I’m just saying my budget was $50, and I had a coupon, plus I knew the spring collection was up to 50% off. If I hadn’t brought my daughter, I might have been able to skirt away within the budget, but that orange dress……how could I say no to the beautiful orange dress? She’s waited so long for a dress that flowed, and was beyond princess-y, in her all-time favorite color, orange. Seriously, look at her face! How could I say no? The pure joy of finding such an amazing dress!
My reasoning behind splurging on a dress, you know, besides how excited we both were to find a pretty one in her favorite color, is that dresses last longer for her. Even if she gets taller, most of the time, she doesn’t expand much in the shoulders, and rest of her body. So she can get away with the dress and throw on some leggings under it as she gets taller, turning the dress into a tunic. PERFECTION. So of course, we got a really pretty pair of pink leggings for her, too.
