It was a big day yesterday for us! I gave my son plenty of warning over the past week or so that soon his favorite green shirt would be too small and he would have to find a new favorite. In the morning I held his arm out and showed him how his arm had grown! His shirt didn’t go to the end of it. I then pointed out the stains that I couldn’t wash out and told him he could wear the shirt all day, but at the end of the day it was time to say goodbye to it. He took it extremely well and just said “ok.”
I hadn’t planned on buying him a new shirt to replace it, but we were out later shopping for his sister’s first birthday present (*sniffle* It went by too fast!) and he found some green shirts. They were cute and a good price, so I bought him two different ones. He couldn’t wait to wear them! It was no problem saying goodbye to the shirt that night and he was proud to tell his daddy how he had grown, and to show off his new clothes! Phew, I was prepared for the worst and it was too easy! I don’t think it would have been a problem even without the new shirts.
