School clothes shopping--ugh!
I was trying to get out of the house quickly, so I wasn't really paying attention to what he was wearing--until we started walking into the mall. Of course he was wearing yesterday's clothes. Not only did he wear them yesterday, but they looked like he had been wearing them for weeks. Awesome. So here I am walking through the store with this kid with dirty clothes on, big old Winchester ear protectors on, making screeching noises. Public humiliation. Aaron follows me around as I'm grabbing clothes as fast as I can before he bolts away. I've got probably 10 different pairs of jeans for him to try on, and a couple of shirts. We head into the dressing room and with EVERY SINGLE item of clothing I had to say, "don't take the tag off. Aaron! Don't take the tag off!" over and over again. It took doing this at three stores before I was successful in finding him a pair of jeans that actually fit. He was tired, and so was I. At that point I didn't care that they were $27.99 a pair! (Ok, I'm cheap when it comes to clothes that he will grow out of in 4 months). So two pairs later we headed out of the mall and on to Target (another favorite of his--not). By the time we got home we had been gone 3 hours and he and I were both done! We're headed to meet his teacher and drop off school supplies now. I can't wait until Thursday!
