My son's teacher just emailed me to give me the mother of the year award let me know that my son is very cold and to please send a sweatshirt in. I thought about it and realized that he has 1 sweatshirt, that of which is a hand-me-down from his brother. Then I mentally went through all his clothes and realized that while I bought him some jeans this year (and reinforced the knees so they could possibly survive til spring) I neglected to think about tops/shirts at all. Needless to say, I will be picking him up right when school ends (with a thermos of hot cocoa) and taking him shopping. I am proud to say that he does have a warm coat that fits! (Probably has holes in his shoes though!)

  1. LOL I do the same with Cole. I hit up thrift shops for jeans and sweaters since he's wearing out too quick!

    I say Hot Cocca would be a great idea ... :)

  2. Tell me about it. It seems that every time I turn around, my daughter has grown out of her shoes, pants and tops. I need to open a store for all the clothes she doesn't wear because she grows out of them too quickly.

  3. Aww, you are a good mama, not your fault if he didn't tell you he ws cold in school, right?
