Everybody knows that I’m not a girly-girl, right? These fingers haven’t seen a manicure in years, and I’d rather be in the garden than sitting under a dryer in foils to get my color “just right.”
While that’s the path I’ve chosen for myself, I want Little Peanut to make her own decisions. Blaze her own trail, ya know. Embrace her girly-girl if that’s what she wants.
In that spirit, I moseyed over to Target to pick up some shorts for her. Maybe something pink, with sparkles, Hello Kitty…I dunno. This is what I found:
Um….excuse me?!? Kids’ clothing designers? I already took you to task about footy pajamas. Apparently now we need to talk about little girls’ shorts.
I got no problem with the ruffles.
I got no problem with the stripes.
But for Heaven’s sake, how about an extra couple of inches in the length?!?
Yes, I know I’m ranting. I know she’s a little, innocent girl and shorty-shorts are “cute.” But it’s just not going to fly around here.
I’m sure she can blaze her own trail and embrace her girly-girl while wearing boys’ shorts.
