I have been going through the bag of baby clothes that I kept from when the boys were little. There is a reason for it today, and without going into a long and probably boring explanation, there is a family joke about me crying over baby bootees when my kids leave home. (I deny that this will happen, while knowing it probably will!!).
Anyway, my eldest is on work experience this week and is making a big trek into the city each day. He, of course, has been quite excited and I have been quietly worrying more grey hairs out onto my head. Day one yesterday went without a hitch, as I expect the rest of the week will.
Anyway, thinking about the family joke over bootees when he goes out into the big wide world, i dragged out the baby clothes today in search of some bootees. I really thought I had kept heaps of their baby clothes but now that they are all but grown up I do wish I had more!
Anyway, I found these which I thought might be fun to look at. When the kids were toddlers we had a lot of family weddings and events and so I would make them little suits. So this is a progression of the vests they have worn over the years. The one at the top is a more recent one; my youngest son looks oh so smart in a vest and suit pants.
And just to show you, I DID find some bootees in all that tripping down memory lane:
