I hate character clothing!
I hate clothes with cartoons, logos, brand advertisements, and most especially licensed characters on them. You will be hard pressed to find a picture of G wearing any of that gear as a small child. Even harder pressed to find one of F. But, in some foriegn language, "third child" must translate to "caved" because I have. He begs in that cute, somewhat lispy voice with those blue eyes and homeless looking blonde straggly hair and I cave. Out shopping with me one morning, S conned me into getting the Legos Star Wars shirts for the 2 little boys. I bought a third in a larger size for a birthday party we are headed to next week. I decided I'd give them the shirts on the 14th as a Valentine's day token and give F the faux leather jacket I had bought for him. Turns out, the jacket looked "too cool" for F. Guess I am going out to get a new birthday gift for the party and return to jacket. And never swear "I will never let my kids..." again.
