Years ago shopping for kids clothes consisted of a handful of so-so choices. Fast forward to 2012 however, and I find myself looking at a miniature version of my dream wardrobe everywhere I go! Every trend I lust after soon lands in the kiddie aisle – closely followed by me – knocking things over to snap up the cutest clothes I’ve ever seen.
I found these adorable pastel pieces at Target. Found isn’t an accurate representation of what really happened. I’ve actually had my eye on these for quite some time, but was forced into action when I realized they were almost sold out.
Yes. By ‘forced into action’ I mean I did the unthinkable. I pulled down and stripped off a mannequin in the middle of the store to grab the very last pleated skirt. And I left that poor naked representation of the human form on the shelf without redressing it. Sure, I’m not proud…
…But all’s fair in shopping and war, right? And I bet the security footage of that would be great for a laugh, so it worked out for everyone involved (except the mannequin).
Isn’t it funny, the things we will do at the sign of a sale tag/last item/rival shopper/ninja assassin?
On the very same shopping trip I also may or may not have been that mother in the store, making awkward sounds as she attempted to jump up and down, arms waving wildly back and forth, trying to reach kids clothing high up on that ridiculous rack that no one can ever get to. Every store has one. It sits up there… mocking you… You know the rack I mean.
So maybe that was me, maybe it wasn’t.
My lips are sealed. 🙂
PS – I reached them.
PPS – It was worth it.
