Kids are brutally honest. If you want to know the truth about anything, ask a kid. They won’t say something just to appease you, they will always tell you the honest truth (so be ready for the answer). When I came across the t-shirts at Honest Baby, I couldn’t help but laugh. The shirts have quotes that are brutally honest and if baby’s could talk, these are thing things they would say.
I found it quite difficult to pick out the right Honest Baby shirt for my daughter (as so many would “fit” her personality), but I eventually picked “don’t expect much, I’m big for my age”. For my regulars, you know that my daughter is tall for her age. I don’t expect my daughter to be doing certain things at certain times, I just allow her to live and learn at her own pace. I do spend time teaching her things and am so happy when she masters developmental stages, but really I just let her be a kid.
However, I have noticed that people think that because my daughter looks more like a 2 1/2 – 3 year old, they expect her to be way more developed than she is. A prime example of this is when she is at the library. She towers above all the other children her age and does want to play with the older children – on the steps. A few months ago, steps were very dangerous for her and I had to be so close by at all times to ensure her safety. The other parents which were letting their older children play on the steps looked at me like I was completely over protective (which I might be a little), but in this case my over protectiveness was valid. I felt obligated to say things like “she’s only 18 months old”. Which then the other parents would reply “Wow, she is tall for her age”. So there you have it.
That was a bit of a rant, but it’s frustrating when I see other people judging my daughter because they expect more from her. She’s still just a baby, let her be a baby, she’s just big for her age. That is why I LOVE this sassy t-shirt that my daughter can wear and I don’t have to say anything to other parents, they can read it for themselves.
The shirt is ribbed which makes it quite fitted. This is the first shirt my daughter has that is this tight. My daughter received a 4T shirt (I told you she is big), but in her defense, they are cut a little small, so please make sure to order a size or 2 bigger anyway. (Sorry for the terrible picture, she’s been way to busy to get to settle down for a photo.)
When ordering your Honest Baby shirt, you can personalize them to match your favourite style. I went for pink and brown. You can also choose long sleeve or short. There is also the option to have the saying slik screened right onto the shirt or you can get a quote bubble sewn on. I went for the quote bubble – because even though my daughter can’t fully talk yet, I want her to have a voice.
