Dear China, She's five. Please make some clothes appropriate for her. Thanks.
School shopping. It ain't what it used to be. Thank God for the internet because I can sit in the comfort of my own home and order hundreds of dollars worth of clothes, have them delivered to our door, force the kids to try them on, then send back whatever doesn't work. I don't have to load any children into the car or the stroller or deal with any whining or bullshit from anyone. It's great. There are times, however, when we're out and I try and get someone to take interest in looking at clothes. Now that Drew has such an opinion (who the hell told her she could even have one yet?) I'm done even pointing clothes out in the stores to her. She wears a 6x and so many items are completely inappropriate for a kid who wears such a size. I can just imagine how this is going to get worse and worse as all the kids get older, especially with the girls. Oh, Lordy. Some of the girls I see walking home from the high school look like straight prostitutes. I'm going to hang this on our front door. Whadaya think?
