Thought of the Day – 5/24/2013 – Loving Kids Clothing

24 May

Clothing for little kids (babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers) is – for the most part – pretty similar to what grown-ups wear, with one exception:

My kids have (or have had) onesies, shirts, bibs, and more proclaiming their love for Mommy, Daddy, Mommy and Daddy, Grandma, Grandpa, their sibling, their aunt*, as well as cupcakes, bugs, dancing, and a few other things.  These items make up a decent slice of their wardrobe.

*Almost four years into having kids, and they have never worn anything expressing their love for their uncles.  It’s not because they don’t love their uncles – my daughter is wild about all of them (and you could make a case that she prefers them to her aunts), but “My Uncle Rocks” items are not very prevalent.  Such bias in the world of toddler fashion…

Yes, yes I do.  (image from

Yet I cannot remember ever seeing an adult (or really, anybody older than 6) wearing a “I love my Auntie” or “What Happens At Grandma’s Stays At Grandma’s” shirt.

Which is too bad.  The world could be a better place if more of us expressed our love for others on our clothing.

    Totally agree that uncles are underrepresented in toddler fashion. I searched for a “My Uncle Rocks” t-shirt for my nephew and came up with very little.

What do you think?
