It can’t only be my kids who seem to grow out of clothes a month before the season ends but long after all of that season’s clothes are gone from the store shelves. (Sidenote – finding winter hats and gloves in January or February should not be a nearly impossible task, it’s winter for crying out loud. Same goes for bathing suits in August!) Alas, the retail cycle seems to be completely out of sync with my kids’ growth patterns and the times I do get the next size up, the kid in question doesn’t grow until after the season and has outgrown the size before the next time he or she can wear it.
