Wednesdays are super-busy around here. We have swimming lessons and soccer and this week, with VBS, it was an insane day. We dropped Pk at VBS and then went into town. There was a friend to whom I had leant a bunch of girls' clothes before we knew for sure that we were done and she returned them all. All of the older stuff is going to a friend but the younger stuff is too small for her girlie so we decided to try and sell some of it. I love shopping at the second hand store - I buy Gymboree, Gap and other premium brands for a third of the cost and they have some really lovely stuff. They are really stingy when it comes to buying though and I got almost nothing for pristine Gymboree stuff. I was a bit disappointed. LB, on the other hand, discovered this trampoline the second we entered the store and he was in heaven. We couldn't get him off and when another child approach, he warned, "MINE!" We broke down and bought it for him since he jumped on it the entire time I browsed.
I got some great stuff at the second hand store for the kids. I love dressing LB in clothes that are smaller versions of what daddy wears - rugby shirts, small plaids, preppy t-shirts. I know the day will come when he refuses to wear what I want him to but in the meantime, I'm going to take advantage of it. Pk got some lovely stuff, too. I was good and restrained myself from buying more dresses. Everyone tells me that the stage of the dress will pass but thus far, there's no sign of that yet. I just love the fact that I can buy a huge bag of stuff for the kids that's all good quality and not have spent very much!
