We actually had a rainy weekend, which was fun. I got to wear my white coat one more time, and the littles got to get truly muddy helping Mr. weed the yard. A cool rainy weekend this time of year is kind of a big deal for Arizona. Usually, by March it's already hit 90 degrees.
So my boys have this burlap ruler on the wall in their room; it's really cute and we use it to chart their growth. The other day, juuuuust for fun, I decided to see where I measure up compared to my boys. Oh don't worry, I'm less than a foot taller than my 7-year-old.
One of the best things about being really, truly short is that you can occasionally get away with wearing kids clothes. Which are cheaper. And now thanks to brands like J Crew and Gap, there are actually some decent options out there. Like this pair of snowcat pants from J Crew. The adult version came out when I was largely pregnant with Ava, so I thought I missed out. But low and behold, a few months later they pop up in the little girl's section of Crewcuts, and for half the price no less.
I still had to bring them up a bit. And by a bit I mean 4 inches.
You know you're short when you're buying the pants of a 12 year-old girl and you still have to hem them.
