My house is filled with beautiful wood floors; beautiful, bare, wood floors. I hate rugs - don't ask!It's just the way I am. So what's the problem? My baby is frantic to start crawling and something in me rebels against watching him struggle across that cold floor.
Maybe it's my mother's voice in my head saying,
"Cover that baby, he must be cold."
Babies kinda miss the whole point of the cause and effect thing. But believe me, no body is missing out on the hollers Pip's emitting every time I try to prevent him from practicing his new sport.
My friend at Baby Goose Co. saved me. She makes these darling baby leg warmers. the more I put them on my kiddo the more I love them.
They go much further than just warming the legs. They give him some extra padding for the knees and tops of his feet. Don't tell him that though,
he's going for the tough-guy look.
They saved me some money too.
I was able to stretch some of his more Summery clothes into Winter outfits merely by adding leg warmers under his short outfits.They are also great for an extra layer to prevent "bare-ankle syndrome" - another no-no around Nana. They work perfectly well under footless sleepers, overalls or pants to keep those ankles covered.
Plus, they are very stretchy. He'll be able to wear them a very long time. In fact, T-boy wears them too.
Only he wears them on his arms.
He's such a goof. He can't stand extra layers around his torso and complains about things when they feel the least bit tight. When Winter came he had a lot of good t-shirts that still fit him. So we just added some leg warmers and he's nice and toasty. And I didn't have to go add shirts to this Season's shopping list.
It doesn't take a lot to make me happy.
Besides, I was born in the eighties, I'm pretty sure I came into the world with big hair, wearing neon pink leg warmers.
