We took Fainjin shopping yesterday. He has grown, and all his trousers are flapping around – or more accurately, slightly above – his ankles. I’d also realised that his shoes were slightly too small. And all the “spare” hand-me-downs from various people that we had as backups were the same size.
So we found him three new pairs of pants suitable for daycare before his tolerance for trying on clothes expired. Then we headed for the shoes. He only tried on a couple of pairs, but luckily one pair fit and were considered acceptable. I think the flashing lights helped.
As he walked to daycare this morning, I worried that he would fall or walk into something. He was holding his new pants up above his ankles, walking stiff-legged, and staring at his feet to see the flashing lights.
