Sometimes I will see an item of clothing and think, ‘that’s perfect for Annie / Ezra’. If I can’t find it in their current size I’ll buy it larger and put it aside until they grow into it. The most recent item I did this with was an age 4-5 Star Wars hoodie for Ez.
This weekend he spotted it in his drawer, pulled it out and has been wearing it ever since! The trouble with this is obvious, the Dude is not quite 23 months old and small for his age, this sweater on the other hand is huge, Annie could wear it comfortably.
Of course despite this Ez is refusing to take it off. He likes putting the hood up and looking like a Jedi, a Jedi who has to have his sleeves rolled up by his Mum because his cloak is 3 sizes to large!
I don’t mind Ez wearing this Star Wars hoodie despite its being way too large. It’s nice to see him take an interest in what he wears and he looks kinda cute and geeky, swimming in his sweater.
