Hello my Dear Friend... as always, I’m SO delighted that you are here! I’ve got a very confusing pot of ‘Where the heck is size 9?’ to fill your cup.
Shopping with Littlest in tow, somehow we’ve managed to ignore our ‘to get’ list (again) and found ourselves smack dab in the middle of the pink and purple paradise also known as... in my very loud and proclaiming thoughts, ‘Caffe, control yourself... we really don’t need another pair of denim shorts or a green polkadot t-shirt with the words, Gurlz Rule, Boyz Drool! on the front because you have enough laundry to do already without adding more!’ Pheeew... Breathe!
Seriously Darling, how in the world do I get stuck in the middle of the girls clothing section every single time we go into a Target**??? But that’s not my question for today, it should be... but it’s not...
This is my question... Can you or someone you know please explain to me why there is no size 9 in kids’ clothing? There’s size 5/6, 7/8, then 10/12... where the heck is 9?
10/12 is waaaay to big for Littlest and I’m sure her entire body could fit inside a pair of 10/12 jeans, but a pair of 7/8 will fit for about... mmmm, until yesterday! Really? No size 9? Who’s the person in charge of sizing and what do they have against the number 9?
I just don’t remember going through the size issue with my Oldest, but I guess with boys it’s different and it really doesn’t matter as long as they have a belt that fits. Men... Hmmmph! They’ve always had it easy in the clothing department!
So that’s my question Lovey... size 9, where is it and how come it’s not there? And do you think that’s how that joke came to be? You know the one.... ‘Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 eight 9!' HA! : )
My cup is empty, but I would like to refill it with some information about the missing 9. Actually, if you’d like to fill it with a little Knob Creek, that would be good too! I’m off to powder my nose... until next time my Darling... Ta Ta!
**No, I don’t get paid to advertise for Target, though I should, as most of my writing inspirations come from this place!
