I’m sad. A year or two ago I bought H a couple of red and blue spotty dresses from H&M. She’s too tall for them now. This makes me sad. This morning was so warm we knew it would be a dress day, and I only had one size 4-6 in the wardrobe which was suitable (the rest have long sleeves and today really was not a long sleeves day).
They’ll be fine with leggings but even those need replacing. Sigh. This is the problem with a tall girl!
So off I scooted to H&M for lunch, picked up three dresses for under £8, a Hello Kitty beanie hat with ears (I still don’t like HK but H does) and a hairband which stays on her head – all for a bargain £11 or so.
But the dresses! The lovely dresses! Here she is in March 2012 dressed as Miffy for World Book Day (for children) at nursery when the dress was new. Sob.
Because H&M rule, I picked up two more spotty dresses. Seriously, she will thank me for all these cool clothes when she grows up, she’s fared much better than I did being a seventies child (although my anorak and jeans aren’t too bad really. I like my sister’s plain anorak though!!)
