Mom, Dad, and the Baby Gap
How Moms and Dads differ when it comes to baby clothes.
Oh, I know there are a few male clotheshorses out there. But even the guys who really do read GQ for the fashion advice don't tend to share their sartorial obsession with their little ones, beyond the occasional tiny tee emblazoned with a favorite school or sports logo.
I've never seen a dad sighing over the seersucker bubble suits at my local children's shop. You expect a guy to ogle the Victoria's Secret catalog, but how many glance twice at Hanna Andersson? And in my case, thank goodness. After all, who wants a man who cares more about his own wardrobe than I do about mine? And who wants someone else beating me to the nursery to package my bundle of joy?
