We went shopping this weekend for cooler-weather clothing for the kids. LilZ is about 2 inches too tall for his jeans from last year and NikkiZ has NO PANTS at all. We hit the thrift stores on Saturday where I scored the most for AndyZ and nothing for LilZ. Then, Sunday we spent an hour at Target raiding the clearance racks and even paying full-price for some staples for NikkiZ.
One of the scores LilZ found on the clearance rack was this t-shirt for NikkiZ which I first thought might be too small. Now, he is actually probably the biggest Beatles fan in the house – so he begged for us to get it for her. She didn’t want it at first (No flowers? Or princesses? Or ice cream? Huh?) but when she realized LilZ really wanted her to have it she put it on over the shirt she was wearing and said, “See, Mom? It Sits!” (Sits = Fits. We’re still not doing the -ffff sound.) So, I bought it for her and she and LilZ both wore their Beatles shirts to school yesterday.
And luckily, because of my mad tagging skillz, I was easily able to hunt down another photo where they’re wearing matching shirts. This is why I love flickr, I can dig through 2+ years of photos in mere seconds to find the one I want.
Some people like to put their kids in all matching outfits – usually involving copious amounts of plaid. While I think it’s cute, you won’t ever see me doing that (Unless I could get MrZ to participate too -that would be AWESOME) but this? I’ll do. Especially if they’re cheap and come from Target. I wanted them both to get the ones that say, “My Mom ROCKS!” but LilZ drew the line at that one.
He said he’d rather wear the plaid.
