Size doesn't matter

You know what's great about kids' clothes?  Shorts. 

Kids can wear the same pair of shorts forever.  Last summer Annika was still wearing a pair that were size 18m (and she was just over 3).  Sure, they were a bit shorter on her than at 18m (I think they started out as capris and ended up as shorts), but they still fit perfectly in the waist and bum.  Emmett (who is now 18 months) is currently wearing the same shorts that he wore last summer.  The pair he had on yesterday was a pair that I had originally bought for Annika's first summer.  Can anyone guess what size they are???




They are almost a bit snug, because baby got back with his big cloth diaper bum, but they still do fit.  So do you think you know what size they are??  Scroll down and see!



























Were you right??? 
Make sure you leave a comment and let me know if you guessed correctly!

Can you believe that?  Size 3 months and he's wearing them at 18 months.  Granted, they are huge for an actual 3 month old.  Like I said, I bought them for Annika's first summer (she was 3 months in mid-July) and she never wore them that year because they would've fallen off her (this was before I started using cloth diapers - they might have stayed on with a cloth diaper).  But thankfully I didn't put them in the giveaway bin just because she was older than the number on the tag.  They've gotten a lot of wear since then! 

Hmmm, I wonder if I could still squeeze Annika into them now.....  ;)

I'll confess: I didn't actually guess! But it doesn't surprise me. My girls are like that, too. On both of them, the only thing that ever seems to change is their length (and quite rapidly, at that!), but they never seem to grow out of their waistbands!!

LOL....Janelle is 6 1/2 years old and wearing a 6x/7 but still fits into shorts that are a size 3!
Wish it worked that way for us!!

I so agree with you on this one. My daughter is 22 months and I have been using shorts from her first year this summer.
