WooHoo Wednesday (Aug 5, 2009)

I know it's still technically summer but fall comes quickly in Wisconsin. It can be 80 degrees one day and 40 the next. It occured to me the other day that Bennet has zero fall/winter clothes. I heard Kohl's was having a sale (insert sarcasm) so off we went.

I have to say I'm a little confused by all the sizing options at this point. Bennet was in a 4T but that's getting too small. So now there is a whole new grouping of sizes. 4-6. And the 4 is bigger than the 4T because it's not toddler it's big girl? I just had her try everything on.
Aside from the whole sizing issue I am having alot of fun shopping with her. She's at the age where she wants to pick out her own clothes. Knock on wood she hasn't picked anything too outrageous or hoochy mama. (Yes- she's not even 4 but you've seen what I'm talking about)
Bennet- "Oh mom- I like the polka dot shirt. And the butterfly shirt. And these socks."

And these super flashy diva-in-training jeans. We went into the dressing room to try them on. She looked at them again and lost her mind- "Mom- there's a belt!! A belt! Just like you and Dad have. Oh thank you thank you Mama. I'm so happy." Then she proceeded to kiss both my arms (just go with it). It sure is a belt. A Solid Gold Marilyn Macoo inspired gold encruted beauty. Who knew that would make her day?

Scout lives in hand-me-downs but she still gets a new clothes too. It's only fair. Yesterday she made out with pajamas. Silky polka dot pjs. Next week Nick is out of town for WooHoo Wednesday vs. his standing golf date. What to do what to do?

Ah we are at the same place with G. On size, not flashy accesories :) My battle with him is that he only wants to wear comfy shorts, read gym shorts, & the shirt must have a pirate or a superhero.

This is hilarious;) So cute. Clothes, clothes, how I remember as the oldest of three girls;) Just saw your cute anniversary scrapbook page too. Hope it's a good one in Sept. Celebrated ours today. Amazing all that's transpired in a handful of years, but we celebrated with dinner out and a regae/skaw band while B had her first grandparent overnight;) We are thinking of you and wishing you well with your third. Three girls are a blessing in disguise;) Getting together with my sisters and whole family for a beachfront escape in NC in a week too. Should be a blast as long as everyone can survive being under the same roof;) lol or not. Hi to the girls, all three! ~A, N & B
