Bear went to school in a vest today, as well as the rest of his uniform. The weather has been so warm recently and so the sudden cold was a shock. Bear is not always impressed by vests. He will sometimes utterly reject them and sometimes insist. He is also in a new shirt as the shirts from last year were looking a little short.
The trouble with kids' sizes is that there seems to be a huge stretch between them. Anyone who has sorted clothes for a nearly nine year old will be aware that one moment the shirt will be fine, the next bear will be struggling into something with sleeves half way to his elbows and looking like a neglected child. Today he has gone to school in a shirt and vest that look far too big for him, a sweater that is exactly the right size (for now - I'm watching closely) and trousers that are just about long enough.
Everyone is full of colds, coughs and yeurk here. I think we can plan a duvet week.
