“Having a baby is like getting a tattoo on your face. You really need to be certain it’s what you want before you commit.” Elizabeth Gilbert
I love this quote because it basically sums up parenthood. Before you have kids, you hear all the time how hard it is, but you don’t grasp what hard truly means until you are in the thick of it. When my son was first born, I thought those first few months were the hardest when my days were a blur of diapers and 3 am feedings. Then, I realized it only gets harder. Instead of worrying only about his physical needs, I am trying to nurture his emotional health and make sure he is progressing intellectually. I am trying to set boundaries and find clever ways to trick him into sitting on the potty chair. In between all of this, I am trying to work, clean, cook, carpool…need I go on? There are days I look at him when he is throwing a tantrum or refusing to share, and I think How do I teach this little person to become a responsible, compassionate, functional adult? I take a deep breath and remind myself to take it one day at a time, and do my best to just be there for him.
Right now, we are in a stage where he is becoming more independent, and that means teaching him to care for himself and make decisions on his own. As much as I want to step in and just take care of everything (because most of the time it would be so much faster), I have to let him try things on his own. This extends from eating on his own to picking out his clothes, and it is a crucial step in their development. He is learning to brush his teeth on his own and comb his own hair and taking pride in how he looks. With this new stage, he has taken an interest in his clothes. He has a favorite color and of course he wants his clothes to reflect his interests such as cars, trucks, and more cars and trucks. It gives him confidence to pick out his clothes, and it makes me feel so proud when I see him dress himself. Who would have thought watching a toddler put his arm in the right hole in his t-shirt be such an emotional moment?
It is the perfect place to start teaching children how to make their own choices that reflect who they are and what they want and inspire a sense of self that encourages them to think on their own. However, clothes shopping kids is never easy. It can be so expensive for something they are going to grow out of quickly or get so dirty you can’t tell the original color. Plus, if you have ever gone clothes shopping with a two year old boy, somehow it turns into a game of hide and seek in the clothing racks. I cannot imagine how hard it must be with multiple kids. Ordering online can be an even bigger pain because you just never know how it will fit, and not all companies have friendly return policies. This is why I jumped at the chance to try a sample from Wee Blessing, a child clothing subscription. I barely have time during the day to feed myself so anything that helps me take care of my son’s needs is a huge deal.
Wee Blessing was created by a busy mom of two that understands how hard it can be to clothes shop with kids. She designed this service to help moms and give kids clothes they will love at prices parents will love, guaranteeing 40-60% off retail prices. They handpick top brand clothes specifically for your child and ship them right to your doorstep. In the comfort of your home you get to try them on and send back anything you don’t want. They offer clothes for kids in infancy to fourteen years of age. You can choose a one time order, monthly or quarterly deliveries for your child, but it is so much more than everyday outfits (and pajamas). Wee Blessing is perfect for birthdays, baby showers, new outfits for school photos, even formal and prom wear! To get started…
- Fill out a style profile which includes sizing, favorite colors, and everything they love from superheroes to princesses.
- Choose your delivery frequency which comes with 4 outfits or a onetime outfit for a special occasion or as a gift
- Wait for your package, and when it arrives, you have 10 days to decide if you want to keep all the items sent. If not, send back what you want for FREE! No return shipping or restocking fee.
- You are only charged for what you keep, and there is just a flat $5 shipping and handling fee. If you love everything you received, you get an additional 10% off.
- The best part is you get brand name clothes for your kids that are 40-60% off retail price.
This is an amazingly convenient way to shop for your kids, and it gives you more time to do the things you really love with your family. Instead of wasting time and energy at the store trying to coax your child into trying on clothes or bargain hunting, do something fun and have clothes your kids will love shipped to your doorstep. This is a totally new way to shop for your kids.
When the box arrived, my son was thrilled to open it up and see what he had received. The items they picked were spot on with what he likes, and he loved to try them on at our own pace while mixing and matching the pieces. Each piece was well made and from a name brand kids clothing line. It was adorable to see how excited he was about the new clothes. When he wore his car sweatshirt to music class the next day, he was so proud to show it to everyone! Wee Blessing has made buying new clothes for my son actually fun again, and it gives him the chance to begin to learn how to express what he likes…without having a meltdown in a store dressing room.
With St Patrick’s Day coming up and Easter right around the corner, it is the perfect time to try it out Wee Blessing and order a special gift for your wee one. Once you try it, be sure to refer a friend because when they sign up, you get a $25 credit.
