Roo has a little bit of a belly on her and she's also longer in the mid-section (long torso?) so I normally buy her bigger shirts (plus there is an advantage to she can wear them longer).
I decided that I would start buying her size 5 shirts and the last time I went shopping I had to venture into the girls section.
And I have to say, I was shocked.
Only because clothing in size 5 is so much... older than the toddler section.
Everything is so... bright. So bold.... so sassy.
The thought of my little girl wearing shirts that say, "All About Me" and "Diva" or "HOT" written across her butt! It gives me the chills.
She's not ready for this.
She's a little girl. She should still be wearing cute stripped shirts with lollipops on them!
I couldn't bring myself to buy anything... so I ran home and ordered plain shirts online for her.
And just thinking about going back to the store and being surrounded by short, pleaded skirts and tube tops (okay, not tube tops but you get me here) freaks me out.
She's my sweetheart, my baby, my firstborn, I can't handle her growing up so fast.
And I know for a fact I can't handle the clothing that comes with growing up.
And if I had a problem with the clothes that are to come, imagine her father.
