Spring Make Over

Before the school year, I bought the boys school supplies, and a pair of new running shoes. I was thinking, and hoping the footwear would last a good six months.

I was wrong.

A month later, A.R told me his shoes were worn out. Even J.P's shoes were looking shabby. What? It's brand new! I looked at their footwear again, and luckily, it was still in good condition.

I refused to buy them a new pair. They'd have to learn how to take care of their belongings.

However,  I soon discovered that socks, jeans, spring jackets and baseball hats don't last very long either.

Sigh.

What the heck do these boys do during recess?

My kids need a spring make over! And a haircut.

So, later we're off shopping for some new shoes, and a new wardrobe. And hopefully, it will last until the end of the school year.

  1. Stopping by from FF to say hello and to follow you. I've got one son and I totally understand your frustration. Last winter he "grew" so fast his pants didn't even last the season!
