The End of an Era
I had a moment at Babies R Us the other day. It was a small moment but big in what it represented. I hurried into Babies R Us while Chris and the boys were in the van. They were having a GREAT diaper deal that I could not pass on, so I ran it to grab two boxes of diapers for Maddox. Walking to the back of the store, I passed through the clothes. I have been keeping my eyes open for coordinating Easter outfits for the boys. As I passed some things I looked and had my MOMENT...the sizes stop at 4T!!! Brady will be 5 on May 30th but he has been wearing (and in some things, outgrowing) size 5 for a while. The realization I had in that moment....that just kinda snuck up on me in a weird way....is that I can no longer shop for my
baby big boy at Babies R Us. It just hit me - BAM - unexpectedly, unprepared - in the retail world, at least - he is no longer a baby!
