Y4 - 75/365: Proper Little Man
Since Ryan was an itty bitty, I've wanted him to have a smart-looking pea-coat, but they're always some outrageous price. So, earlier this week I placed an order on my never-before-used Vertbaudet account. I had noticed they had some fantastic deals going and I quite like the sensible and sophisticated look of their clothing.
Some of the items arrived today, including this pea-coat I had ordered in a size 2 years. I was so excited to try it on him, however, was soon disappointed to see that a size 2 in Vertbaudet runs a bit small and although it fits him now, it wouldn't for long.
I have since phoned them back and placed a replacement order for all the same items in a size 3 instead.
Matt isn't keen on the coat, but it's my "guilty-Mommy-pleasure" to dress him up all smart-looking before he's old enough to tell me how much he hates shirts with buttons and collars and refuses to wear certain things...like SOMEone I know.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
