Yes by the title you may think that I am excited that posies are popping up in my yard giving way to true signs of spring, we have violets, and other cute little flowers too along with my husbands nemesis the dandelion. I truly believe the dandelion is the nemesis to every man who mows his lawn. My 3-year old son though loves to pick them and wants them in vase as soon as possible, who am I to say no. But this post is not about the posies popping up in my yard.
Can anyone tell me why my baby’s pants, sweatshirts, and t-shirts have pockets? I mean besides to look super adorable and for us as parents to look at in the store and say “oh my gosh, so cute, and look at the little pockets.” Not once has my 2nd born used said pockets for pacifiers, wipes, or anything useful to him. My first born is obsessed with singing twinkle twinkle and turning everything in daily life into lyrics to that cute tune, which is now imprinted in my brain on a daily life, along with the Mickey Mouse Club “hot dog” song which will be the death of me, especially when I’m singing it around the house with no child in sight. Perhaps this mouse is MY nemesis?!
Anyways, I digress and back to the pockets, so before twinkle it was all about having a pocketful of posies. And recently with the posies popping up my son may have actually filled one said pocket with posies, the three-year old son, not the baby. But I’m sure you figured that out. Finding all sorts of things in my 3-year olds pockets has been fun, especially after a trip to the beach or playtime in the sandbox, then its mostly sand that I find and it goes everywhere. But we are entering sand season, so I should just get used to it. The pockets of toddlers are at least functionally, not in anyway that makes me happy really though. Do I want to find bugs, sand, rocks and random beach trash in his pockets, not really. Although my Mom tells me I would almost always have worms, bugs and even frogs in my own as a youngster.
I figured the gap would probably make jeans for babies with what looks like pockets but not actually be functioning, but there is room in there for stuff. I guess the baby pockets are for cuteness factor alone, or perhaps I will start using them. Maybe put a baby cell phone in there, or a small baby-size wallet (with chain of course cause my baby is a badass)?!
What fun and crazy things have you found in your children’s pockets these days? Anyone find something in a baby pocket?!
