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.
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.
