The other day a big box arrived at our door. The dog barked, Connor went wild with excitement, and I anxiously watched the monitor to see if the commotion would wake Ethan up. (It didn’t. Love that kid.) Connor always wants to open packages right away (who doesn’t?) but especially this one, because he was convinced it was full of LEGO. A gigantic box full of LEGO. And he was not dissuaded by the fact that it didn’t rattle when we shook it.
I knew it wasn’t LEGO, but I was actually more excited about what was inside. It was full of clothes. And not for me.
One of the downsides of having another boy is that I don’t feel justified in buying new baby clothes. (This is also the downside to being practical and frugal and keeping all of Connor’s clothes for four years.) I did buy a few new things for Ethan and, to be fair, I have totally enjoyed opening up the boxes of stuff Connor wore and reminiscing about all those cute sleepers and tiny onesies.
This particular box of clothes was from Sears and it was part of the ambassador program and The Baby’s Room launch of Carter’s and OshKosh, which are two brands I happen to love. And it was perfectly timed, too, because Connor has just reached the stage where he wears out his pants before he outgrows them. He has ripped holes right through the knees of three – THREE! – pairs of pants in the last couple of weeks. And Ethan did need some stuff, because he’s in a different season (not to mention different climate) than when Connor was this age. So now he has some very cute and very cozy pants and some adorable hoodies. I’d have taken a picture to show you but he barfed on both sweatshirts as soon as I put them on him. He’s helpful like that.
So despite the fact that the box did not contain LEGO, Connor was pretty happy. It was probably the fleecy pyjamas and the footed sleeper in his size, which has moose on it. I know, right? So cute.
