A few weeks ago, I finally found and ordered a great winter coat on a good sale for Roman. I try to wait until the really quality ones are on sale after the holidays so that they will hopefully last through a kid or 5. I have been pulling his sweater cuffs out past his little jacket sleeves for a while now trying to keep his wrists warm. Also trying to make sure his sweater or shirt is pulled down as far over his pants as possible when I hoist him into his car seat because his jacket has gotten small enough to just barely meet his back waistline when he sits down. He probably couldn't care less, but I can't relax if I think he is one degree colder than he ought to be.
After ordering it, I showed him a picture, and he has talked about nothing but his "big"coat because he is so "big" now. But each day that it didn't show up, he asked "mommy am I big enough for the big coat yet?" Well it finally came last night. The very same night he got to help with making valentines for his preschool friends. It was as if the universe all came together in a big bundle of red-happy-cozy-candy-heart-sticker perfection and I have never seen the kid more excited.
So today, this beaming bundle of big love is headed for a very fun day of preschool- his cuffs and his hem well passed where they should be so that my mind is at ease with his comfort. And even though I am so well passed a much needed shower that I am getting itchy, and I can no longer button my own coat over my big pregnant belly, I am so very happy in his happiness.
Happy Valentine's Day!
