I learned something today…
So it’s back to school a week from tomorrow and I have been trying to get new clothes for TheBoyzz but it is like pulling teeth. Especially with Marc.
If he could, he would wear the sloppiest jeans, stained from paintball jeans, torn on the bottom from walking on them jeans. He likes his pants to be loose and his t-shirts to be tight but they can only have sleeves of this length and that. They have to be pretty fitted in the waist, something that is tough to find. He will not wear anything but blue jeans. Khakis or dress pants? forgetaboutit.
I went to elementary school today to deliver some backpacks and told some of the teachers, that I found loitering (heehee, I crack myself up) in the hallways, about my dilemma.
Here’s what I’ve learned: Where it is cool for girls to have shiny, new clothes, shoes and what-nots, it is not cool for boys to have shiny and new things. I was also told that I should have gone clothes shopping at the beginning of summer and let the boys wear the clothes to make them dull and uninteresting 😉
I have no manual for these things, heck I had to have my husband show me how to change diapers for goodness sakes. I guess we’re not going to spend much money on back to school anything. One suggestion was to dress them with clothing from Goodwill 😯
I am sure they were making fun of me
