Yet more baby clothes

I brought home the first lot of borrowed baby clothes the other day, which my mum had thoughtfully washed for me. On the one hand I feel like I'm tempting fate by gathering all those little pants, shirts, cardigans and all-in-one suits when I'm still less than halfway through gestation. On the other hand maybe that's just me being superstitious and I may as well starting transporting them while I'm not to big to drive.

And speaking of baby clothes - punky baby clothes in particular - I see that the fashion pages of today's DominionPost includes a sample of some cute items which are available here in NZ. Rock Your Baby has mostly cutesy gear, but I did like the Little Anarchist t-shirt/beanie/etc (25 bucks Australian or 27 bucks New Zealand) and the Funky Little Dude set (30 bucks Aus. or 32 bucks NZ). A little more accessible to non-punks like myself, and a whole lot less expensive too.

Well, that's all from me - I'm off to move my bum muscles.

So you know it's going to be a boy, right? I recall you saying that you didn't want to know, but the clothes you keep mentioning are for boys. If you have a daughter, she could have serious gender issues ;)

Hee hee, fun clothes (sigh)! Dressing the baby up, gosh, even just looking at the clothes can make a big difference ... like wanting to have more babies.

Must say that I (and work colleagues) object to the fact that there aren't adult sized versions of the t-shirts on this and the previous site...might be a market there for someone?!?!

Jon: you make me laugh. No, I still don't know my baby's gender, nor am I assuming it will be male. I just prefer the boyish stuff to the girly stuff - it probably reflects my taste in my own clothes. A girl in boys' gear should be no problem - it's putting a pink frilly dress on a boy which could cause serious gender issues.

EB: really? Is there going to be exciting news from you in the near future?

Desiree: Well the truly punk/metal stuff you can get in adult sizes...
