New Blog Feature: Things I’ve Bought My Kids that I Love (TIBMKTIL)

November 14, 2010

Zara boots, size 6 and 1/2

So, there used to be this great blog written by this super smart and fun writer/actress in which she posted pictures of fun things she’d purchased along with some witty commentary.  I loved the concept, though apparently not enough to notice that she stopped updating the blog in 2008.  Still, the idea stuck with me, and I thought I’d launch our own version here.

Sometimes,  I buy something at Mama Goose that I love so much I’m struck by the urge to call and tell people about it — as though I have actual, legitimate news rather than just the most recent report of my inability/unwillingness  to confront my shopping addiction.  The boots above were one of those purchases.   The idea of my little hipster toddler in what are essentially baby Doc Martens was more than I could bear — I bought them so fast, I don’t even remember how much they were.  (Somewhere between $8.95 and $10.95.)  And check out the picture below!  My little girl is ready for a semester in London!  (Do they take 2-year-olds on study abroad programs?  That would be great.  If she were in Europe, she’d totally have to sleep in her own bed.)

The Gymboree swing coat was a second runner up for this post, but the boots had me at checkered shoe laces

Do you have a recent Goose score to show off?  E-mail me a picture and a description and I’ll showcase it in our  TIBMKTIL column.  (I’m going to work on the name.  I promise.)
