A Rant

Why is it that it is next to impossible to find seasonal wear that coordinates with the season you are currently enjoying?!?!?! If you haven't figured out what size your child's feet will be by the end of the winter and have bought that size boot by Halloween then "sorry ma'am we aren't getting any more boots in this season". ??? What ??? It isn't even officially winter yet!! This is Minnesota!! And Heaven help you if you haven't anticipated (in JANUARY) that your toddler will want to stomp in every puddle located (in MARCH) and bought your rain boots. Because "I'm sorry ma'am, we got those in January and aren't expecting any more this spring" ?? Huh ??? If you really want these things you can of course spend extra to buy them from a store on line and hope and pray that you figured the size correctly! ARUGH! Oh, and by the way, the stores that do sell rainboots only sell them for older children, becuase there's no way a 2 year old will want to stomp in puddles or a parent who wants to keep the shoes in semi-good shape for at least a month or two. Oh yes, and don't forget to stock up on extra mittens and hats (for when they disappear) by the middle of November because you won't find any of those that fit either. Of all the...........

  1. I had the same problem with snow boots! I stocked up at REI when I found some good winter boots for $14. Who knows how big Jada's feet will be next year--or Jakob's either for that matter! :0)
