This is really turning into the suck. I wish anything could be easy for her. I wish I could get her all excited about school shopping and go try things on but no one carries the plus sizes or elastic waists in stores. I just want one damn thing to be easy. I am becoming very bitter over all the little things other people take for granted that are just so damn hard for us.
I have ordered tons of stuff. Once I get something that fits in her waist, the chest is huge. Things are too long. The jumpers are so big they look ridiculous. If the pants fit, she can't button them. If the skirts fit, they have a freaking attached short under, so she still has to deal with the buttons. And why does every skirt need pleats, why do all the jumpers need (useless, btw) pockets? Then you can't even shorten them.
You would think someone would make a pair of elastic waist pants, a pair of shorts, a plain a line skirt with an elastic waist, and a plain a line jumper. They would be the most basic things in the world.
I am pretty much putting all my hopes on a knit scooter that I'm not even sure they'll let her wear without having to go through making it an official accommodation. There are also some pants from one of the links above that look promising and plain enough to easily shorten to thanks again for providing links
She's not even that over weight, really. It's not like she's some 80 pound three year old or something. And to make this even more fun, I've now had a big blow out with my husband over it. Apparently my saying, "this hunting for uniforms business is really stressful, I'm afraid I won't be able to find anything" is my being negative God knows all feelings that make him uncomfortable should be pushed down till I gag on them.
This should be fun, this should be exciting. This should not be so hard.
