Dreary Day Fun...

So I have a relative (who shall remain nameless) who likes to gift the little one with lots of outfits. Who doesn't love free clothes for their kid? On occasion though there have been a few outfits that hubby and I have a good laugh over. This particular relative NEVER gives receipts with these items so returning or exchanging is not an option. Since today is such a blah day I felt like giving myself a little chuckle which I will share with you...




This little gem of an outfit is 100% pure pink polyester!! You can tell that the little one is thrilled to be in it and is so pleased that mommy is giggling at her! I know that some people would think that the outfit is the cutest thing but there is just something about this that just seems wrong. Is it the pink racing stripe down the side, the ruffle around the bottom of the shirt or is it just the fact that the words "Baby Girl" are so hideously embroidered on the front? It for some reason makes me think of the pink bunny suit in A Christmas Story ! I do have to admit that its hard for Evelyn not to look cute in anything she wears, but seriously this outfit is something the frumpy fat kid might wear! LOL! I probably would never have even considered keeping the outfit except I know that this relative looks at the pictures I post on flickr everyday and more than likely looks forward to seeing her in the outfits she has gifted the baby with. What's a mom supposed to do? Can't let the relatives down you know?!

OMG. I won't lie Laura, I have the SAME problem over here. There are certain items that will never be worn..... Oh well. Their intentions are good? Hmmm.... When is Evelyn's bday?? She sure is getting bigger- and doing sooo much more than my lil monkey.
