Shopping for a coming home outfit-
For a girl: this one is so cute, oh but this one is cute too. Hmm, do I want to go with an outfit or a dress.
For a boy: Why does everything for boys have cars, trucks, trains or balls on it. Even dress clothes. Why can't there just be something plain and cute?
Shopping for baby clothes-
For a girl: there's so much cute stuff on clearance
For a boy: it all looks the same but at least there's a bunch on clearance
Shopping for a baptism outfit-
For a girl: do I want eyelet, lace, beaded, smocked, classic
For a boy: Do they all really have to have a vest or now tie? Ugh
Shopping for an outfit to go to a wedding-
For a girl: look at all these cute dresses on the clearance rack after Easter. I guess they were too dressy for Easter but are perfect for the wedding. On clearance for $13? That's awesome.
For a boy: I can't believe the entire mall had nothing. I finally found something at Strasburg for $60.
Leisurely shopping at the mall:
For a girl: wow, look at these cute dresses on clearance for $3. Oh and there's a sweater on sale for $7. These shoes are half price.
For a boy: OMG, they have a cute dress shirt, I know he doesn't need one but when he does they won't have one so I better get it now. Oh but it's regular price at $30. I better go against every cell in my body and pay full price because I know I won't ever find it again.
Shopping for Christmas outfits-
For a girl: look at these cute dresses on clearance for $15, they even come with matching doll dresses and they have all the girl's sizes.
For a boy: I've gone to every store and still can't find squat, I guess I'll settle on this sweater that isn't ugly but costs twice what the girls outfits cost.
Shopping for necessity-
For a girl: Oh look, you outgrew those pants. We'll pack those away and you can wear these bigger ones I found on clearance a couple months ago.
For a boy: Did you seriously rip a hole in your jeans again? That's the 3rd pair this week, I guess I'll go and try and find you pants at the mall tomorrow (knowing they won't have a single sale, sigh).
For a girl: " I found a cute dress on clearance for you today." "Mommy thank you, it's so cute, can I wear it to school tomorrow?"
For a boy: "I got you a new shirt at the mall today." "Mom, that shirt is babyish. Besides, my green shirt is comfy and my favorite (and stained and way too small)."
Now I eat my words. I know that boys cost just as much, you just get 1/3 of the stuff for that price.
