Thomas the Train


I'm not a big fan of "Character Clothes"...you know you aren't either. But when your kid is obsessed with something, you've got to give in and bite the tacky character clothes bullet. they are only kids once right?
Chad's Mom brought these home the other day and it was love at first sight for bridger!
He LOVES his new jamies...he won't take them off. After a huge fit I was able to peel them off his body...but he insisted that they remained attached to him somehow, so we resorted to tying the top around his shoulders like a sweater. Today I took him to the store like that, and I now have a new appreciation for my Mom. She had to deal with my My little Pony, Rainbow Bright, and Barbie phases. Thanks for letting me dress like a nerd Mom!

Totally understand. My mom got Aliyah some Dora jammies. I hate them, but she loves them and has to wear them to bed every night. Don't worry, it's better when you can just buy them the underwear and then they can wear them ALL the time without people seeing them. :)

Ohhhh! I miss his cute little face! And yours, for that matter! I totally miss you guys!!! It is time for a southern Utah vacation to see all of your friends?!!! You can stay here! Just come! We will even feed you with our trade!!! And BTW, I think character jammies are totally ok! It is the shoes with the lights and the thick velcro straps across that top that I draw the line at!!! ;)
