When you have 4 kids of the same gender it seems as though the youngest ones rarely have new clothes because why would you buy clothes when you can pass down gently used clothes from your older kids. But after looking at the spring church clothes of my youngest two boys, I realized that they really needed something new and nice and with Easter around the corner, it is the perfect time to get them new Easter outfits for church. My boys are rough on kids clothes and most of the week I let them wear whatever they want to play in but I love seeing my boys all dressed up on Sunday for church.
There are few things I dislike more than taking my boys out shopping for clothes. Our nearest clothing stores are over an hour away so having the opportunity to shop online and have the items delivered to me seriously makes my day and lowers my stress level. I have just recently heard of Cookie’s Kids, a department store just for kids with great prices on really cute clothes, so I went looking for new Easter outfits on Cookieskids.com.
If you haven’t heard of Cookie’s Kids, they are actually celebrating 40 years in business. In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing and the business was on it’s way.
The company continued to grow and now there are seven superstores throughout the NYC area as well as Cookieskids.com selling clothes of all kinds including girls dresses, boys suits and school uniforms.
My 4-year-old is getting a little picky about the type of clothes he will wear and he really doesn’t like dressing up. If it were up to him, and most days it is, he would wear some sort of character shirt. So I had him come and sit on my lap and help me decide on the perfect Easter outfit for him that he would wear. He ended up choosing this blue American Exchange dress shirt set.
My 4-year-old looked so cute in his new shirt and I love the matching tie and pocket square, even though he had a hard time leaving it in for the pictures. He was great about posing all over the house and yard for me.
Isn’t he a cutie? I love this boy and his almost-too-big smiles.
My baby on the other hand wasn’t so great at posing for me. Once he discovered that his feet could take him places he hasn’t slowed down. He thought is was hilarious to have mom chase him around and around the house trying to get his picture.
I was able to catch up to him for one quick picture in the house. Doesn’t he look so handsome in his new itty bitty suit. Have you ever seen anything so cute? He’s quite the little man!
I love having a baby who doesn’t complain about how I dress him. I also love being able to find cute outfits for him and trying to decide which dressy baby item to get was kind of hard for me. But, in the end, I couldn’t pass up this James Morgan suit. How cute is that! To see some of the other items that I liked at cookieskids.com and had to have check out my Google + album.
I have to admit that I am always a little worried about getting the right size when I purchase things online but Cookieskids.com has a feature called Alva Kids that helps you to find the exact size you need for your kids based on their height and weight. You just enter their measurements and it gives you the suggestion for what size of each item to purchase. I love this because even though I pretty much know their sizes, different brands of clothing run slightly differently in size. The sizing it told me was right on for my boys.
These two absolutely love each other, and I couldn’t be happier with their new Easter clothes.
And yes, sometimes big brother still loves baby just a little too much!Facebook and Twitter and keep up on some of their great deals they are having as they celebrate their 40th year in business. “I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community.
