Today I received the sweetest email and darling photos from our Dutch nephew's wife (guess that makes M. our Dutch niece ;) ). M. sent an early morning photo of her two cute sons all dressed up for rainy weather where they live in Germany. I will not include the photos until I ask for permission, but the youngest cutie is dressed in a pirate raincoat that we gave him back last fall. The eye patch is a "killer." The older sweetheart is keeping off the raindrops with his sports umbrella that he also received as a gift from us.
Buying clothing gifts for children is fun, but I never know the correct size. So some friends and relatives receive too big items, while others are probably too small :( . Luckily parents know that clothes gifting is a risky business.
If it doesn't fit, just pass it on to some other kiddie.
