Old Photo Friday: Ziggy and the Plaid Pajamas

My mom buys the kids lots of great clothes - but often a little on the big size. I understand why - kids grow, and usually, they grow quickly.

And of course, the buying-large strategy means the clothes will last for awhile.

Like in the case of Ziggy and the plaid pajamas which my mom bought him when he was a baby. For reasons she outlined in this email I received from her:


"Bought Ziggy some plaid PJ's since U like 2 dress him in old men clothes and he's in bed a lot."


Here he is wearing his "old man pajamas" as a wee baby:

And here he is still happily wearing his "old man pajamas" just last month:

What about you? When it comes to kids clothes, are you a "buy a size bigger" shopper, or more of a "buy the stuff I like in multiple sizes" kind of shopper?

This is my usual installment of Old Photo Friday, even though (yes, I know) the photos aren't that old.

Linking-up to the always funny, Finding the Funny at My Life and Kids and Kelley's Breakroom.

My MIL did that with my kids for years.

thanks, it will serve him well if he decided to be old school punk rock one day!

I think it's generational.

It's kinda riddiculous, no?

Being a fan of old man pajamas, being an old man myself, and all things flannel and plaid, having no sense of style I applaud you for training your son in the proper male dress code. It will save him years of frustration and make shopping so much easier.

That makes me laugh! I have a picture of myself in a red gown when I was a baby and later as a toddler. A big toddler. Thanks for linking up with us over at #findingthefunny!
