If you’re following my Blogmas, you will know that only the other day I was musing about Dressing Up At Christmas and debating whether or not to dress up as something this year. Well, I am still on the fence about what to do for myself (a very short yet sturdy fence that is… safety first as a pregnant woman!) and the other day whilst I was out shopping, I found the cutest outfit for BB to wear which in turn distracted me from the stress of deciding for myself.
And today, a Sunday that involved staying home out of the cold and playing with toy trucks and building bricks, I decided to get said outfit unpackaged and popped an inquisitive toddler into it. I’m not sure he understood why I was oooh-ing and aaahhh-ing quite so much, but he still gave me a grin from beneath the antler adorned and red nosed hood that made my heart happy.
The outfit itself is lovely and warm, with very soft fluffy fabric. All I will say is that the stitching is a bit dodgy… lots of loose threads that I had to trim and there was a slightly popped seam around the right sleeve cuff that I shall have to fix soon. I would take it back but my to do list is already quite long, plus it was the last one in his size at our local branch and I haven’t time to wait for a replacement. Especially at Christmas!
To be honest, I was just excited to see him all dressed up and a popped seam wasn’t going to stand in my way! And I’m glad I didn’t let it. It’s not every day you get to play brick towers and digger trucks with Rudolph now, is it?
