We like to move it
Fresh Makeup for Spring
One of the most requested songs in my van is “I Like to Move It” from the Madagascar 5 album. We haven’t seen the movie, but that song came on my kids Pandora station awhile back, and ever since then it’s become a favorite.
From his car seat, Luke will usually yell, “LOUD! LOUD mom!” over and over until I turn it up loud! They’ll kick their legs, wiggle in their seats, and laugh throughout the whole song. These two are MOVERS.
I was chatting with my friend Jenna a few years ago about kids clothes and she mentioned to me that she liked how I always dressed the boys in casual, easy clothes that allowed them to move. She only had girls at the time and said she could imagine dressing her son, if she ever had one, in similar outfits. As it turns out, she now has a 6-month-old boy! And while he’s still wearing a lot of infant clothes, like onesies, I plan on letting her raid my boys’ clothes boxes for any other outfits that she’d like to borrow once he gets a little bigger.
Well, H&M must have had the word “easy” on their mind when they released their Spring line for kids. Everything can be mixed and matched which makes it so easy to get my boys dressed. And right now, you can mix and match these adorable tops and bottoms for $9.99 (and check out these adorable girl’s styles too!).
David’s at the age where I can tell him to go grab a shirt and pants from his room, so I tend to keep his drawers pretty slim with just a few basics. I can easily slip these into the mix since they all go so well together.
My favorite feature, though, of the whole line is the interior elastic waistband on the pants! Either that, or how lightweight the pants are. Both are high on my list of important things for my kids’ pants.
My boys have never been skinny kids, so I’ve always battled the need to size up so it’s not too tight on the waist, but then it ends up being too long in the legs. While these pants are still a bit long for them, I love the adjustable waist feature. It buys so many more months of use for the clothes!
David was particularly excited to have a dinosaur shirt because the rest of his wardrobe it mainly comprised of truck t-shirts. He walked into the bathroom as Justin was getting ready and said, “Look dad! I have a dinosaur-us rex on my shirt!” It was so sweet.
I can say with certainty that we’ll be living in these H&M clothes this spring!
