Last week I was looking at Spring clothes for Little A. Sadly, I was half way out of the department before I found anything age-appropriate. This has been going on for a few years (me having to spend a bit more time shopping for girls’ clothing that looks like its made for girls as opposed to little women) and I still do not get it. Why would a child of seven or eight have any occasion that would require hot pants? I haven’t been in a climate yet where the heat was so extreme that little girls had to have clothes that short and I grew up with hundred-degree, high humidity Summers. I understand that shorter clothing can be cute on little people, but having ones glutes (and parts of glutes) hanging out is not cute on any age.
