I woke this Saturday morning smelling like a coconut. Catherine was applying copious amounts of lotion to my face, so even though it was only 6:30, I decided I would be safer getting up. The kids wanted some Lucky Charms, so being the conscientious mom that I am, I swiftly ate all the marshmallows out of their bowls so they would have a healthy breakfast. One of these days they are going to catch on that that the picture on the outside of the box really is what is inside the box.
When we went outside, the air was cool. Anastasia said, "It smells like Halloween!" Oh no, the season is changing!!! I began to panic. I just figured out what everyone was going to wear for the summer!
No more simple summer dresses to just throw on. No more flip-flops. I was going to actually have to find socks that matched everyday for the kids to wear.
Not only do I dread sorting through piles and piles of clothes to see what could be passed down to the little ones, but I was going to have to figure out something quick for Anastasia and Isabella, who were shivering dramatically in the 70 degree air.
I had to face it, the time had come to go shopping with the kids. I guess I am kind of a weirdo, because I really don't like shopping that much. Isabella is really easy to please. She loved everything she tried on, whether it fit or not. Anastasia, unfortunately, takes after me, and is super picky. Everything has to be soft and totally perfect. She will not wear jeans at all. She doesn't like dresses much either. Pants are required to have an elastic waist. I think she must have tried on 50 pairs of pants and she only consented to get two pairs. Then, she was mad because Isabella got more than she did! UGGGGHHHH!!!!
The best thing I bought was this cool toy for a dollar at the thrift store!!! We'll see how long it takes for all the balls to get lost, but it was a big hit.
Anyone have any tips on how to keep kid's clothes organized?
