The most patriotic holiday is right around the corner, so do you have your little one's red, white, and blue 4th of July outfit picked yet? Independence Day calls for barbecues, picnics, pools, and beaches (or however your family defines "summer fun") and, of course, fireworks. Celebrating America's birthday is a privilege and I don't know, did it really happen if you weren't wearing something patriotic?
I have to admit, I loved dressing my daughters up in holiday-themed clothes when they were babies. At Christmas, they were covered in Santa Claus and reindeer, at Easter, spring-themed bunnies and duckies galore, and July 4th, I would plaster them head to toe in red, white, and blue. These days, at almost 8 and 10, they're a bit less interested in wearing a "Don't pinch me" t-shirt on St. Patrick's Day, and I guess I can't blame them. I'm happy to report, though, that wearing some version of red, white, and blue on July 4th still makes the grade. Perhaps it's because my husband and I wear our flag colors with pride on July 4th, and they haven't yet entered the "parents aren't cool" phase. Whew. I'll ride that wave as long as possible. In the meantime, Happy Fourth of July! Check out these adorable outfits for your little firecracker.
