My son is growing like a weed. It’s really tough to keep up with. This week, he is in desperate need of new shoes, since the last pair I bought him lasted about 3 weeks; new pants, since he went to school twice this week in floods (and not the only-kind-of-too-short kind, but the seriously-dude-you-look-ridiculous-get-some-clothes-that-fit kind.); and a new haircut, because he has luscious, thick, fast-growing hair. There is also less than a month left of school, so buying school-appropriate attire seems a little silly at this point, because it won’t be around for next school year at the rate he is growing. Should I buy sandals and shorts? Or shoes and pants? Plus, we are heading into heavy birthday season, so budget available for miscellaneous clothing items is slim. AND…? His sizes are a little tough to find sometimes. It’s like the perfect storm.
Clothes shopping for teens is not the only thing I did this week, which is lucky, because I’m pretty sure you’re either asleep right now, or wish you were. Here’s a quick update of the other goings-on here at The Manor.
Stuff I did this week:
Stuff I didn’t make but wish I had:
The obscure holiday thing is getting a little old. But this is one I could get behind.
My swirls never looked this good.
Maybe I should stop complaining about other people’s food dislikes. Because I hate this stuff.
FINALLY. A cinnamon thing I can really get excited about.
Stuff you can expect to see next week:
I’ll be spending Mothers Day with my friends.
How many weeks in a row can I post about coconut? I think I’m about to set a new record.
My son will turn 15. I intend to freak out about it and probably eat a lot of ice cream.
I wish I could say I was taking the weekend off, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be shopping. Wish me luck, friends.
