We are finally in the last leg of the race, in seven days, my kiddies go BACK TO SCHOOL!!! They are happy, I am happy, my wallet on the other hand is not so happy! I dread back to school shopping.
I was very proactive this year and spared myself the mental break down; however there is still some clothes shopping to do. I love to shop, I can spend hours browsing and strolling around the mall, but when I take my Diva teenage daughter and seven year old son clothes shopping it is always a grueling and exhausting experience!
My fashion forward seven year old son is quite the Fashionisto. He knows what trends are in and loves anything name brand. His style is a mix of Rocker meets Skater. I try to do his clothes shopping alone, because if the hubster comes along, then my son ends up with ridiculous items like a "Fedora". Yes, a Fedora!! He set his eyes on this beauty while shopping for spring clothes; my hubby caved and bought it. It is safe to say that my hubby lives vicariously through our son?
Diva on the other hand is a totally different story, even though she is not into name brands, her motto is as long as it fits and looks good, she will wear it. She inherited my body, curvy and busty; not the easiest to dress! She gets frustrated very quickly and it's all down hill from there. The saving grace this year is we started early and are almost done with her clothes shopping. But now she wants a new phone...does it ever end?
Before leaving for work this morning, my hubby did say for me to keep my eye out for anything I needed for my trip to VEGAS in October, so I guess it won't be so bad to take the kiddies shopping after all; Momma needs a new pair of shoes!
