Just how I am feeling...

Give me strength to not give in to what all the ‘other moms’ may or may not be doing with their children.

It is hard not to fall into the Licensed products hole of advertising to INFANTS...

So when we went shopping for Jacob last weekend, I was a bit gleeful while browsing through shops that had generic themed baby clothes. (& a little guilty about the brand named t-shirt that was the best value at about $3 - we need a "t" for over the swim trunks - Jacob is fair skinned with red hair...)

Here is a reminder photo...

So you can't see the red hair in my artsy-fartsy photo... (It wasn't visible in the others either... he is sporting a fringe.)

You can do it . . . . they aren't marketing to the infants but to you *S*

What an adorable photo of Jacob!
I remember shopping with my preschool children and trying to find PJ's that weren't advertising. I got some from catalogs, but there were none in the local department store. Good luck in your battle, it's worth the fight.
