baby gap sale!

confession #1: my first trip ever to babies r us was after parker's 1 month birthday.
confession #2: my first trip ever to baby gap was this week.

i'm not quite sure why i never ventured into baby gap before parker was born--probably because parker was given many, many clothes and i figured baby gap's clothes were overpriced (see Recession 2009). however, last week parker received a shirt and shorts size 0-3 months. i tried them on him and took a picture to send to the well-wishing giver even though they were tight as can be. then i drove straight to the baby gap 10 minutes from our house to get a bigger size. luckily i found the outfit and was about to exchange it when i saw the price on the shorts, $19.50. $19.50?? for a pair of semi-cute shorts? that he will wear once or twice before he outgrows them (p is already 14lbs)?? i told myself it was a gift and if someone else wanted to spend $19.50 on a pair of shorts that was their choice. i knew baby gap was overpriced.

but then the sale rack caught my eye. and i saw these:in case you can't read them, they say:
1. "i'd rather be NAKED."
2. B.Y.O.B, Bring Your Own Bottle
4. Teething bites.

and i had to get them because... they were all either $1.99 or $2.99!!!! with the reversible crabby hat i ended up spending <$19.50 for everything. take that overpriced shorts!

moral of the story: go to baby gap this weekend. get some uber cute clothes. you will be glad you stopped in.

p.s. thank you all for your great comments on the last post. i might write more about the subject or chronicles of a babywise mom next week, but it is friday!! we're hosting a dinner party and the cheesecake is in the oven! love yall.
