Snow boots

Trust me!
I think we bought the last pair in kid size.


Snow pants


Snow pants


Target



Walmart
And buy your daughter snow pants from the boys department.

Shh... don't tell her that!



And one final tip...


Snow pants


Unless digging snow out of your child's shirt and retucking it in every 10 seconds doesn't bother you. Than by all means, buy the pants.

Snowbibs are definitely much better than snow pants.

Santa brought new bibs from Wal-Mart this Christmas. Believe me, he checked a few other stores, they were sold out, didn't carry them, or wanted way more than he could of afforded to pay for them. My kids will stay out for hours in their bibs, despite where they came from.

Tell me about it! Milo's feet change sizes so quickly that I wanted to wait until now because I figured he would be different. I had picked up a random larger size of boots at Snugglebugs that still had the tags on it, and thank goodness I did. They may be a little tight on him but at least his feet are dry for the half hour we are playing. When I looked at target I seriously considered the hot pink with butterflies, because that is all they had Snow bibs I got in 2 sizes in the summer YAY!

I hear ya loud and clear. We had to buy Buddy some new snow pants (BIBS!) this month because his coat zipper broke and his old snow pants didn't match at all. It was like going on a wild goose hunt. And now I'm learning that his boots are getting wet inside, so we may have to try and find boots. Ugh.

I learned that lesson the hard way a few years ago. :(

I don't miss those days! My boys are teens and would rather freeze to death than wear snow clothes.

the best time to get them is at the end of the season. Sometimes they bring out stuff that did not sell. Yes, Alyce will be a big Sister..

Happy SITS day! I'm afraid to even ask what a "snow bib" is, but you are spot on about the snow boots! Live & learn!

Oh yea... you have to have the overalls!! At least until they are teenagers and don't want you touching them anymore LOL

I always check out Once Upon A Child or Goodwill after the season is over and buy the next size up used for next year!

And snow pants are totally boy/girl interchangable - unless they are pink I guess!

Rachel said...

Came over from SITS to check out your blog. I like it so far, you seem to have a great sense of humor!

Jenn said...

all too true!! and try to FIND snow pants in the UK. They don't normally get snow, so all you can really find is ski pants.

And who spends that kind of money on a 6yo who doesn't ski?

Oh, how I miss Wally world....
popping in from SITS, and I love your blog!
