It's that time of year. Lots and lots of shopping and not the fun kind. Fun kind being the one where almost everything you bring home is yours and wearable and nice. Don't get me wrong... I love to give presents. But the pressure is just too much.

So there is a lot of "what ages is that good for" and "what sizes is 7 yrs old" and "what the heck are backyardigans and will xxx like them?". I hate to ask the parents what the kids might really like because I always get "PLEASE NO TOYS, ONLY CLOTHES!" and I hate to be that aunt... the not fun aunt that always brings clothes. The good news is that I think I'm done. I was a POWER shopper Monday with my girl Leah and we really worked those stores. Done. I think.....
