Purple seems to be the color of choice in our house, at least where my child is concerned. She adores anything and everything in this shade. I’m not joking or exaggerating. Everything must be purple—crayons, markers, clothes, grapes. Even the lilacs in our yard get more of her floral fascination than the other blooms. So deep is her love for the purple, I’m surprised she doesn’t walk around trying to fall down, just so she could get a bruise or two. Only two purple passions escape her—she still has no idea who Barney is (thank goodness) and I still can’t get her to eat beets. Other than that, everything else is up for grabs.

Simple Kids knows that kids are anything but. And that is reflected in their baby clothes designs. So when they designed this cardigan they took that into account. The special touches they added really turn a simple staple sweater into something simply beautiful. And it’s purple. It has precious ruffles for a feminine flair, it’s purple, and boasts big buttons for an exaggerated sweetness (and tiny fingers). And it’s purple. And did I mention that it’s a brilliant purple color that would even make my purple princess happy.

I’m waiting for her to be a teenager. If she continues this obsession, not only will she discover the band Deep Purple, but she will also make the request, “Mom, can I paint my room purple?” I should start buying primer and ear plugs now. Now if I could just get her to eat beets.
