Start 'em Young!

Son and I stumbled on this great book at our library yesterday. I was browsing the graphic novels for myself and he pulled this book up and asked to check it out. I read the title aloud, "Strange Stories for Strange Kids". He replied happily, "I'm a strange kid!". So we got it.

Great read!

Ok, gotta say - LOVE your blog! I can totally relate to the stuff you write, even though my kid isn't shopping in childrens anymore (even Target juniors x-small is getting too small for my 'tween)I remember the younger years well!
AHH - Target plus size clothes - they do great on some, others....like the thin tight t-shirts - unless you want everyone to see your bra shape and what color it is. I am tall and plus size and like my clothes to be a little loose fitting and I love trendy clothes - I would just really like more of a selection from Target and more trendier(they have hit the mark as far as accessories go I will say - they are right on trend and a huge selection of them). I have also notice that the new long sweater cowl neck sweater sets they got in go up to a 30 in size - new trend? I love baggy things, but when they are sleevless they tend to hang under the bra line on the side - just because you are in a plus size doesn't mean you grew in length under the arm - if you are making sleevless items, then it should fit under the arm, not to your ribs! Good thing wearing tanks under things became fashionable this summer! But I rant.....
Would love to see some of the cute pj's and stuff come in a bigger size (XXL is not the same as 2x).
I can go on and on about Target since I am there at least 3 or 4 times a week. They have great pricing and have gotten a lot more up to date in the last couple of years.

Lori, thanks for the comments. You nailed a few things right on. Why do the armpits hang so low. Maybe Europeans are designing these shirts and they love rolly polly armpits.

Oh, yeah--Little Lit! I remember these books (I'm pretty sure there's at least one more) from library visits a few years back. I wanted First Child to like them, but I don't think she was as keen on them as I was...
