Maybe a few of you mothers out there can relate to this post. I had to go to 3 stores today to find shorts for my daughter before I finally found some that were decent. Yes, she's only 7 years old, but, even young children want to keep their behinds covered. I have a big, big problem with the children's clothing these days. They are either too tight or too short and almost always uncomfortable (according to my daughter). Skirts of a decent length are particularly tough to find. I'm not hard to please mind you...I'd just like to see a couple more inches of material over their back ends! The children's styles seem to be just smaller versions of the current teenage trends. It's almost to the point where I don't dare put a shirt into the dryer anymore because I am afraid my daughter's arms won't squeeze into the sleeves.
I can only hope that these styles change before my daughter becomes a teenager. I can already imagine the battles which will take place in this house if they don't.
