Marcus can't fit into his 3-6 month stuff now. Well, most of it anyway. He's ginormous. So a few days ago, I broke open the box of 6-9 month stuff. Perhaps I have mentioned before that my friends all had boys, and so Marcus' room looks like a Goodwill dropoff center.
Anyway, I'm digging through these trying to find something for him to wear, and discover, much to my dismay, that almost all of it is long-sleeved. I'm sure when I received these clothes, I thought... yippee! In six months, it will be September and we'll be moving into long-sleeve weather! But no. As the fates would have it, my son is growing faster than the tag on his clothes would indicate, and it's July. It's close to 100 degrees daily. Ain't no way the boy is wearing sleeves.
For the record, one outfit that I especially like is shorts with a long sleeve shirt. ??? Do we live in Port Angeles? Who wears shorts with long sleeves?
Anyway... this morning I spent the bulk of my time sorting through clothes... boxing up the old... looking for wearable stuff. I closed up four boxes to go elsewhere (three to Kathryn, who is preparing for one in the next year or so, and one for Sophie with Athena's 3T stuff, which Elise may be able to wear in a couple of years). There are still at least six boxes lying around Marcus' room. Hopefully I can work on that a little tomorrow morning.
The good news is, I found a bunch of onesies that I'm pretty sure are 6-9 months, even though they originally said 12-18 months. They are the ones Cheryl and anonymouslemming sent me from England. You may remember these onesies from this post. So I'll be sure to keep them away from fire.
But if they are, indeed, too big... and if none of the other boxes present the correct size in more summery varieties, I may actually have to go to Target and BUY the boy some clothes. I have SIX BOXES of clothes in his room and I may have to BUY some. What is up with my karma?! Sheesh!
