Sisterhood of the Ladybug Pants

Probably the best-ever kid-clothing purchase I've made: the pink pants with embroidered ladybugs that I bought the weekend before Beth was born. (On sale, even.)

Beth loved them. Really, truly loved them. Insisted on wearing them. One of my favorite Beth moments was when we were walking along Walnut Street in Shadyside, Beth proudly showing off the ladybugs to anyone who would pay attention. (One college-age girl told Beth she's like to have them in her size. Beth beamed.)

Sarah, now that it's her turn, adores her "gaygeebug" pants. Thanks to our fondness for classic Sesame Street sketches, she's spent the day singing the "Ladybug Picnic" song: at breakfast, at the bank, in the car. Sadly, she's outgrowing them. They're just about the right length for her, but the waist is getting oh-so-tight around her little middle.

Thought the magical pants were supposed to fit everyone, all the time. Bummer.

(Oh, and Sarah peed on the potty today! Hooray!)

Man, now IIII want some ladybug pants!

Libbers, where do you shop for your girls? Where might I find said awesome clothing line?

The ladybug pants were Baby Gap...I've seen similar things since then but don't think they have anything now. Crewcuts has embroidered pants too...more expensive, but they do eventually go on sale.

So now they're just the right size for Laurel! Perfect! I've been waiting for the ladybug pants (just kidding - you need to save them for the 4 other baby girls you're having soon).

That would be just rude if we didn't go see you too. I am so excited I can hardly handle it. I don't know if I can wait until july
