Retail Therapy

We've got all those other therapies going on, might as well add another.

Because, really, it's about that time.

Check out Playette napping.

Advice for how to handle itty-bitty waists with relatively long legs is greatly appreciated.

It's called "adjustable waist bands"! My kids all have this problem. Legs to kingdom come, but no waist to even come close to fit in the bigger sizes. My oldest (7) in fact is tall, and sooooo skinny, that he could probably fit into a size 3 pants for waist to fit properly, but wears size 8 to fit his length.

I put Abby in leggings, mostly. (like these: http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=12378&vid=1&pid=665880&scid=665880102). They stay up.

I used to put her brother in sweatpants. Actually I still do. Anything with an elastic waist. Those adjustable waistbands aren't bad, but I'm lazy about the buttons.

Adjustable waistbands here too. However, love love love leggings! A 12 month size looks great on Lillian still, but she can still sport a 18 month size too.

Land's End has a Slim cut that is made for little waists and long legs. Really good quality too.

Try skirts with cute leggings under.. And yes, the adjustable waist band IS a life saver! Right now, Old Navy is having their baby sale! I think it lasts for two weeks- but it's 25% off EVERYTHING!! Check it out! (Started Sept. 11th)
We are going to San Diego! Leaving here on the 20th! How far is that from ya'll? That would be so great if we are close!!

I too have a long skinny child. We swear by adjustable waist and slim sizes.They have them in Target and Old Navy. I am assuming that they have them in girls since they have them in boys.
