Stop the Insanity

I've been a blogging slacker. But I must admit that I do have somewhat of an excuse. We have been busy packing for our trip to the beach! Steven and I have both made it our mission to have the car packed and ready way ahead of time. So I'm currently driving around town with a car packed with a beach tent, a wagon, and a stroller. The car is just waiting for the suit cases (oh and the golf clubs, god forbid we leave the golf clubs behind). As I was packing Little Bit's suit case I got sick. Yep sick. The kid has an ENTIRE brand spanking new wardrobe to take on a week long vacation. I had to take a picture to document this absurdity and utter insanity! She has not one, not two but SEVEN yes SEVEN never been worn, tags still on 'em, dresses! And what you may ask is mama taking new? Nothing, nada, zip. That's right, I'll admit it, for some reason I find it more important to dress my kid rather than myself. Sophia can make a pillowcase look cute (and I know this because I have purchase two adorable "pillowcase" dresses) and here I am trying to squeeze into skirts that I bought my second year of law school, which was a much smaller period of my life! All I can say is that I hope when she struts her stuff in her new outfits that all eyes are on the 15 month old and not the 29 year old mama in the outdated duds!

This is why my husband has several heart attacks everytime I come homw from the mall. It's so hard to resist little girl clothes. And you're right, I don't care about looking like a total slob (as long as I'm showered and all), but the kids have look good :P. Sophie is definitely a very stylish toddler. Can't wait to see pics on the beach!

As long as the girls look great that is all that matters. Your trip sounds so fun. I can't wait to take Aubree to the beach one day. So many fun times ahead. Have a wonderful time with your family.

I'm the same way--I LOVE shopping for Jonathan but have no money left by the time I get things for myself. I still have things that I bought in college! I agree with everyone else, though, that it's more important to me that Jonathan look good than that I'm wearing the latest from Ann Taylor!

We ought to start packing too! We're going to California on Friday and will be there for a week... I'm totally psyched! love the hanger shot.... i hope you guys have a blast!

ps. about buying clothes for boys... i agree with kel, it's not fair that they don't have HALF as much cute stuff for boys than they do for girls!!!

i hear you, i have bought myself nothing and lydia...well it is craziness. i will not do my make up and hair to make sure that she is dressed to the nines!! i know that people are more interested in her than me...i was at sams and my cousin (a distant one) came up to me and asked to see the baby. after commenting on how cute she was, she said, "oh paula, i did not realize it was you!"
