Dream big, little girl

So, I was at the mall today (due to an incident involving an iPhone and a pavement), and I wandered through Primark’s children’s section. Initially, I was pleasantly surprised to see PINK cardies in the boys’s section (admittedly, it looks like maybe this is because preppy is coming back, but I’ll take what I can get). Feeling good, I took a photo (which didn’t come out very well). The good feeling lasted about 30 seconds, as I turned to see this one, in the girls’ section.

    “Future time travellers wife” would be a better t-shirt.

    A reason for checking out a party goods stores…
