What Dads Will Never Understand
I have an addiction to buying baby clothes and getting great deals, get the two together and it is the perfect storm. The other day I was at Kohls, pretty much hyperventilating with excitement when I discovered they were having and 80% off sale for baby summer clothes, when Steve called. I instantly confessed to him where I was and that I was in TROUBLE with this amazing sale. He then informed me I could only get ONE item. With that news, I looked at my stroller and counted 14 outfits hanging off of it that I could not live without. Using my quick critical thinking skills for a situation so dire, I came up with a solution. My birthday was two weeks ago (I am now a whopping 23!) and Steve's kind parents gave me $$. Just enough to cover the cost of all those beautiful outfits. I told Steve my plan and he was impressed, and sincerely said, "you are so selfless, using your birthday money to buy things for Avery." What dads just don't get is this: The clothes I buy for my baby are to cover her bare skin, yes, but they are REALLY for ME. I don't think I enjoy anything more than buying baby clothes, especially baby GIRL clothes. Here is a snippet of some of the outfits I got from this amazing sale!
