Amy and I did some necessity shopping at WalMart tonight and found ourselves wandering around our recently renovated local store. While we were shocked to find the stationary where the shoe department used to be — and the wide selection of pens absorbed Amy’s attention — my eye wandered to the baby/toddler section across the aisle. There… in the back of the display was a series of pajama sets for little boys of various ages. And one of the coolest little PJ sets caught my eye… a Woody from Toy Story’s cowboy outfit! “Nah-Uh!” I thought.
I made my way over there and for the first time ever plunged headlong into the world of childrens clothing. I tried to see what sizes the little Woody PJs came in and found the size “5T” first. “Wow… these are for a 5 year old?” I thought to myself. I then discovered that the sizes also showed “24M” and “18M”. Perfect! As I made my way back over to Amy, I saw the perfect outfit that SHE would want to dress our little dude in someday… a set that showed a cartoon shark on the front with the words “JAW – SOME” on it… a perfect play on the title of one of her favorite movies of all-time. I now had the appropriate bait to get her over to the clothes section.
When she accompanied me to the small person’s garment department, I showed her the Woody PJs and asked about the size codes, to which she knowledgeably informed me of my incorrect assumptions and how “5T” is merely a different size for toddler. “Oh.” Oops.
Upon scanning the section for a price (not noticing the huge “$9.50” sign above our heads), I spotted Buzz Lightyear pajamas too! I’m sold. I highly doubt that when our little toy lover is old enough to wear these pajamas that they’d still have them to buy in stores, so we took advantage of the neat selection and snatched them up. And if not for the hope that he’d like them, then for the sheer fact that I can’t wait to see my little man dressed up for dreamland as Buzz or Woody!
Now… where can I get PJs that look like a Ghostbusters jumpsuit? 😉
