Fatherhood Friday: Buying clothes

When we first found out Parker was going to be a boy, we were a little worried about clothes. Until that point, we’d only seen really cute clothes for girls. Boy clothes tended to be filled with dump trucks, or camo, or dinosaurs.

Don’t get me wrong, I love me some dinosaur clothes, but we like to have Parker wear clothes that maybe older kids would wear, or maybe that even I would wear. Thankfully, we were able to find these clothes, just by looking in the right places, specifically places like Old Navy and The Children’s Place.

Last week we went on a bit of a shopping spree for Parker to outfit him in winter clothes. We were able to find some things like a puffer vest, a nice jacket, a cardigan, etc. Just. So. Damn. Cute.

How can a 15 month old look so grown up? I decided a long time ago I would rather forego personal luxuries to spend on Parker instead. We can’t help it, how can you not spend money to make someone look like this?

  1. You can find great deals on ‘name brand’ kids clothes like Children’s Place at kids resale shows in your area. They are like glorified garage sales where people pay ten bucks to sell at a booth and they unload all of their unused or gently used kids clothes for a buck or two each.

  2. i also let my children wear that older children wears and it’s really cute.
