When you read this post, don’t judge me……..
I have a problem. And I admit its a problem. Pookah needs a new coat. Stranglely, even though i just got him a new winter coat in September, its almost too small. It still fits, but it’s looking smallish on him. His daddy said it’s looking like we can’t afford to buy the child a bigger coat but whatever. Its a nice coat. Anyway, my mother in law got Pookah a coat last winter in the 18 month size, and it was HUGE. Pookah could never wear it. Plus, I didn’t like the coat. It’s too big, too bulky, too…..Walmarty. Now, I love me some walmart, and Pookah has plenty of clothes from there. The clothes are cheap and perfect for daycare where he does nothing but get them dirty and rip them up. But something about this coat screams Walmart, and Big winters in the north. I live in Atlanta where most of the time it’s in the upper 50s and 60s. Even in the winter. So, luckily for me, when I tried it on in September, the coat was still too big. Now, circle back around to yesterday. I put the said “too small” coat on Pookah and his Daddy began to fuss. “what about that coat my mother got him? Can he fit that yet?” It’s too big, I began to fuss. “better too big than too small. Let’s try it on him again. You said he’s growing, maybe he can fit it.” Of course, all things being all things, it fits. It’s still a little big, but not big enough to cause too much trouble. But it’s long, its bulky and it screams WALMART. What am I to do? My child needs a bigger coat. I have one. It’s Christmas time so funds are a little tight…and he has a coat. A practically brand new one…I know I’m wrong but…..it screams Walmart..
