Little Boys Clothes

It's finally happened.  The bag of clothes people gave us when my little boy was born is finally empty.  Apparently once your child is 18 months old you have to start buying their clothes!  Obviously I've been buying the boring stuff like vests and comfy play clothes, but now I'm going to have to buy the cute, going out stuff too.  It's a sad day...  I think the problem is that there's a bit of a void in the clothes shops where the stuff for little boy toddlers should be.  Those of you who have sons will know shops never have a great selection of boys clothes - the girls section is usually 4 times the size of the boys section - but it's even worse for toddlers.  The baby clothes stop at 18 months, the boys clothes start at 3 years, so you're stuck with the 8 items that make up the toddler section.  I'm particularly annoyed about this at the moment because I went to a large shop at the weekend that didn't have a single pair of size 18-24 months jogging bottoms!  Come on shops, sort it out, little boys need clothes too!  Little boys clothes are sadly under-represented on Etsy too, so these sellers are extra wonderful for making clothes that would fit my son.

If you're wondering what the theme was on Friday's blog - the items were all clues to aeroplanes.  If you want more details, let me know and I'll give you a full break-down.  My plane-geek hubby helped me out with it so I'll have to consult with him for the full answers.
