A Simple Solution
For the past several weeks, I've been shopping a lot for an Easter outfit for my kid.
Not many things bother me too much, but I find myself getting upset every time I visit the children's clothing section of ANY store. And at the risk of being like the bickering Andy Rooney (60 Minutes), I just have to wonder why there are so few options in clothing for little boys. I estimate that the majority of retailers dedicate 80% of their floor space to girls' clothing. And don't get me wrong, it's cute stuff.
But I'm left with a paltry offering of t-shirts with a big logo or funny saying and khaki or navy shorts to choose from. At Easter, I am also offered one sweater vest in a "variety" of colors (blue, yellow, or green), and 3-piece suits (yeah, right).
So, I was griping to my mom the other day about my shopping strifes and said, "Apparently, I need to do something about it instead of complaining. You know, like design a line of clothing for boys or something."
"Or..." she said, "you could just have a girl."
Hmmm... good point.
