Avoid the Holiday Walk of Shame with Cookie’s Kids

Sometimes I’m a bad mom. There, I said it. Once you’re through judging me, please read on because I’ve figured out a way to fix at least part of it and explain it to you here.

You’re still here? Good, now let me explain that horrible photo above, my failure as a mother, and share with you my plan for rectifying said failure.

We took Bug and Bubby to see Santa at Bass Pro Shops a couple of weeks ago. Bug had a new dress and she was lovely. I searched through Bubby’s drawers and came up with nothing but a bunch of ill-fitting, mismatched clothes. But we had promised them Santa and we had to deliver. I shamefully dressed him in blue sweatpants and a red and black Cars shirt. This is what he wanted and he most certainly always gets what he wants. There was no other choice (well other than a Sponge Bob shirt that was too short and that wouldn‘t do). 

So we headed to Bass Pro and we have this photo for eternity to remind us (me) that my mom skills are not always top notch. He’s a boy. It’s OK. He really doesn’t care, but I do! 
This beautiful blue-eyed, messy-haired, gap-toothed little man is the apple of my eye. Seriously, if you’ve been following along at all, you would know this. In my eyes, he can do no wrong and he’s the funniest, most kind-hearted person on the planet. His clothes should reflect his beauty. I’ve been busy. I haven’t noticed. But with the holidays and impending festivities, I’ve realized that I have to do something…and fast! I don’t have time to shop for clothes and have him try them on. What’s a momma to do? We have a Christmas party coming up soon and I refuse to take this walk of shame again!

We don’t need fancy suits and dresses. My kids just aren’t the fancy variety, I am their mother after all. We just need matchies and I don’t want to break the bank. 

Enter Cookie’s Kids to the rescue. Have you ever heard of them? This site is full of kids clothing and more. You can find holiday outfits, every day kid’s clothing,  school uniforms, and so much more at amazing prices! And it doesn’t matter how busy you are. You never have to leave your own home and you don’t have to get out of your own mismatched jammies to shop
And when I say amazing prices, I mean amazing. This Spiderman outfit that Bubby adored normally retails at $30.00 but we snagged it for $12.99. That’s a 57% savings! You can see my full shopping experience in my Google+ Album for more details and tips and tricks.
Bubby’s outfits were delivered in less than a week and let me tell you, my little man was more than excited to model them for me.
Not only does he match, but this baby is stylin’ and profilin’. He’s an amazing model and I wish I had enough space here to show you the entire photo shoot. This kid cracks me up!
I’d say that’s one happy little mister. You won’t catch me on the walk of shame again this holiday season. My baby has clothes that fit and match. Maybe I’m not such a bad mom after all. We’re ready for our holiday parties now. He won’t be wearing suits. So what? It’s not our style! But if it‘s yours, Cookie’s Kids can help you out with that too. Be sure to check them out! And don’t worry about size. They have an Alva Kids Icon. Just click that, enter your kid’s height and weight, and they recommend the perfect size for that particular brand. It was spot on for us! 
Bubby wants YOU to visit Cookie’s Kids to make sure your kids have matching outfits for the holidays. It’s so affordable, and if you shop now, you can save an additional 10% sitewide by entering the code: insanityisnotanoption at check out. Pretty cool huh? I know, I’m all famous like that. Take advantage of it before that code expires on 12/21/12. 
Cookie’s Kids clothes are Bubby-approved and that’s pretty important in my book.

Be sure to check them out and do some shopping on their website, like them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter for all of the latest deals. You can thank me later! Bubby already thanked me and I’m feeling like a good mom again (at least until my next failure).

  1. Oh my goodness is he adorable in these pictures! I love that you told me about the Alva Kids icon because Michael is off the charts with his clothes.

  2. Your little man is so adorable!! I love Cookie’s Kids and can’t wait until I can buy some more. …and seriously, I totally thought the same thing when we went to Santa’s Wonderland at Bass Pro Shops. My boy was in some raggedy clothes and needed a serious haircut (or maybe just a bath) and it was such a good pic except for the fact that my boy looked like a raggamuffin… 🙂 I love the new outfits!!

  3. Oh my, your son is ADORABLE. Those eyes! That hair! Glad he now has some adorable clothes to match him so perfectly.

  4. Those eyes get me every time! 🙂 Thanks Leanne!

  5. I know Santa doesn’t judge, but seriously? UGH!

  6. Bubby is pretty much a hoss too. It’s really hard to fit him and I loved that I was able to do that from home! SCORE!

  7. Ha those faces he makes, too precious! Love his new outfits!
