Posted by   + Show Post

fucking cotton footless pjs for my dd.. she's growing out of her fucking 3t's, the footed kind.. mind you, she wont be 3 until oh Easter.. yeah. but she needs a one piece still, she wont sleep in anything else. she likes her toes exposed, but it's just been too fucking cold.. like right now it's 12.

tonight it will get down to 6, tomorrow's high is 9 and the low is -12. so yeah duder is  preparing for a cool spring, 

everything is fucking fleece, and footed, like i said 3 hours, i purchased one pair, i am sniping 2 others on auction that end tomorrow... i remember wearing what i am looking for as a kid all the time..

gap and old navy don't just sell these anymore, and i have spent my night looking for some that won't cost be $20 bucks a pair... i need to start sewing again, because this is just ridiculous... is it so much to ask for fucking 100% cotton jams?

what's your hard to find kiddo item?
 


ETA

i got 4 pair at Children's Place last night... and am checking Kohls today... didn't think this would get featured, or like any of my posts for that matter...

but a bunch of awesome ladies reminded me to check CP. gonna check Kohls amd Walmart today!!

please continiute to comiserate with me, about the clothing industry's evil plan to drive all mothers insane!!!!!!

ETA #2

ok so i found the Disney Cinderella ones at Marshalls,

i didn't bother with kohls cause of the location, but i did get a few more from the childrens place store for an unbelievable steal. so i went from one pair to like 8 in 16 hours. lol.

Oh yes!! DS is two.. A 12 month waist and 24 month length -__-

Quoting ermka: Not as hard to find anymore, but I used to have a hell of a time finding slim cut jeans for ds. The assumption that all skinny kids are short irritates me to no end.

man i went to cut the ringer neck off of one of dh's old  big tshirts, cause i lost my paint smock, and the fuck handles just like.... fell apart... it was one of those bah! wtf *tosses into to trash what the fuck* moments. 

Quoting funny_girl3:

 Not the fabric scissors!?  What the heck were you doing with them?  I only have one pair of sewing scissors as well and I wanted to scream at my husband when I caught him using them to cut the hair out of the roller on the vacuum.  Any other time I would be thrilled that he was servicing the vacuum, but don't touch my scissors!  And I live in PA so I know all about the cold.  We had a brief warm spell that melted all the snow and now it's freaking cold again.  But seeing the yellowish-greenish-gray grass again is a nice change of scenery.

Quoting the_dude:

yeah i was thinking of doing just that.. but.. i busted my scissors. i must have a pair of fiskers just for fabric... NO ONE IS TO TOUCH MY FABRIC FISKERS i just need new fabric scissors, going to town tomorrow, even though... it's fucking witch tit cold.. FUCK i need spring NOW. 

Quoting funny_girl3:

Can you cut the feet off?  My mom did that.

i am convinced that the clothing industry is out to drive all mothers absolutely insane. 

Quoting Ultra_: Everything!! My kids have teeny waists and shoulders so pants have to have adjustable waists and be slim at the same time. Some still are too big. They have to not be too short. Then the shoulders just hang off. Their feet are small too. Of course they make does in all sizes, but my luck whenever I look, they have very few in their sizes. :/ My 9 year old daughter wears 6 slim pants old Navy. Others are still too wide in the waist and short. She couldn't wear anything she got for her birthday until my Mom hemmed everything. Ugh!!

I take a one piece,buy it a little big.  cut off the footies above the elastic band and hem it, easy peasy dude, and cheaper!

she "explores" her body as toddlers often do, which is fine and well, unless, it keeps her up.. which makes her unbearable to deal with the next day. plus, she picks them out over the 2 piece ones, which i have oodles of, she prefers them. 

Quoting Anonymous: What the fuck does that mean??
Quoting the_dude:

she will keep herself up and wake herself, by ya know.. finding nemo... 

Quoting ColieO: Why can't you do two piece?
