The Portrait Project And The Subject Of Growth Spurts

Seriously, I cannot believe how much my daughter has grown in the past year. One minute she was a little girl the next minute she has shot up in height and she is now in size 10 clothing, although she is not quite 9 yet. Children have growth spurts but for us it just keeps happening over and over. In fact the other day Sylvia put on a dress which was way too small. It is her age but no longer fits so it was the last time for her to wear this lovely dress and we are going to have to get new clothing items.

It’s not just with clothing. The same thing happens with shoes and so my mum took Sylvia to Clarks for her Birthday and she now has a new pair of school shoes and trainers. I love going to the clarks outlet, it’s usually half price and they had a deal buy one get one for £5 which was pretty great. So as my daughter grows and spurts I am going to look for some second hand items. I am going to try and muster up the health and strength to visit some charity stores and look for some awesome clothes at bargain prices. I wrote a post this week on 101 ways to save money and second hand clothing is one of the ways to do this.

    1. We go to the one in Castleford Yorkshire whenever I visit my grandma…. it’s the place to visit! They have some right bargains!

  1. your daughter is really beautiful! I think the second hand shop is a great idea to save some money and they usually have nice stuff. Although shops like Primark may also have and the clothes are cute too 🙂 x

  2. Beautiful photos of Sylvia, she really does look like she is growing lately. We have a clarks outlet near us too and I always get my children’s shoes from there as they are much cheaper but the same quality and service. xx

  3. Lovely photo. Growth spurts are so infuriating: you buy something that doesn’t fit for ages and then they grow out of it really quickly 🙁

    1. It is worth it and we usually go once every 6-8 months and get 3-4 pairs for the price of 1 or 2 it’s worth it!

  4. Great tip with the Clarks outlet, we have one near us and we always stock up on shoes for all three kiddies when we visit.

  5. What a lovely picture. I can’t believe how fast my children are growing I want them to slow down lol. I’m cherishing every second x

  6. My three kids are growing up way too quickly. I feel like I am always buying them new clothes as they soon outgrow them
