One of the joys of having five children is that you know sooner or later one of them is going to make you a grandmother. It took quite awhile, but now I am the proud grandmother of three grandsons and one granddaughter. My granddaughter, Ashley, is now one year old and the youngest.
Of course I love them all equally, but I can't deny it is a lot more fun to buy little girl's clothes than little boys clothes.
This Easter I wanted to buy Ashley a new Easter dress. There is nothing cuter than seeing kids all dressed in new Easter Outfits for the season. I had heard so many great things about shopping at Cookie's Kids, an online department store for kids that offers adorable kids clothes and accessories at very reasonable prices. #CookiesKids
I went to CookiesKids.com and was a little overwhelmed at first by what a large selection they offered. But all the clothes are grouped by gender, size, and category, so once I got the hang of the site, it was very easy to use. I did spend quite awhile just browsing before I picked out this very sweet Florasplash Easter Dress for Ashley. It does come with a cute little sweater shrug, but she didn't want to wear it, and who can argue with a one year old?
I'm always a little nervous when ordering clothes on line, either for myself or my grandchildren because I worry about if they will fit or not. I like a great feature that Cookie's Kids offers called Alva, which is where you put in your child's weight and height, and measurements, and it will tell you what size to buy.
I did this with Ashley's dress, and it fit her perfectly. I was so glad.
Cookie's Kids offers just about everything you need for your children clothing wise, including Boys Suits, School Uniforms, and of course, so many adorable Girls Dresses.
Cookie's Kid's history is actually quite interesting, and this year they are celebrating 40 years in business. In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his bother went into business together in Jamaica, Queens, New York. They opened a store with a full stock of holiday toys, and successfully sold them all. They decided to expand into children's clothing and became very successful.
There are now six superstores in the NYC area. In 2007, CookiesKids.com came into being, and turned into the successful online store that it is today.
After I had picked out an Easter dress, I was browsing other sections of clothing for little girls. I had remembered my daughter mentioning that Ashley's swimsuit didn't fit her very well anymore. She was growing out of it, so I decided to buy her a new one.
My daughter takes the kids swimming all the time at a wonderful neighborhood aquatics center, and Ashley just loves the water. There were so many cute suits to pick from, including lots of character suits like Dora the Explorer. But my grandsons just love Angry Birds, so I thought it would be cute if Ashley had something of her own that was Angry Birds.
She absolutely loves her Angry Bird Swimsuit, and didn't want to take it off!! Who can blame her? She looks adorable.
I thoroughly enjoyed shopping for an Easter dress and swimsuit for my granddaughter at CookiesKids.com, and you can see my complete shopping experience by going to my Google+ photo album.
