So today will be a crazy ass day...because today the children and I are going school shopping with MY MOMMA! Ahhhhh!!!! Everyone scream!!!!
My mom is awesome and cool but she is a shopping maniac. She can leap Ten Targets in one small bound, wrangle deals out of every Sears coupon and cash register and get Two For One leggings from every Old Navy store across the nation.
I'm more of a buy it all online at one place and then sort through it when it gets here and send back what doesn't fit.
She's more of a try every single thing on, even when they're two of the same thing, just in case the stitching is different.
Today, with school fast approaching (one week away) I will brave the flurry of activity that is my momma and shop with my daughters for their clothes and school supplies. We will exit the stores laden with our booty, pencils and baby doll dresses, I-Carly slip ons and crayons. I will buy them underwear and socks, even though I'll probably have to buy more in a couple months.
And then tomorrow I'll call their dad and precisely tell him where to get their fall jackets or hoodies (and upside to sharing custody, last year he bought their bookbags, this year their jackets/coats or sneakers...pretty much whatever one or two things I don't get today!)
Later tonight Jeremiah will have to withstand several small girl children flailing clothes in his face, modeling shoes and insisting he watch binder demonstrations. He will be overwhelmed, but he will smile and give them the same response he gives me, "Ah-ha....Riiiight....I don't know....of course....uh-nuh....ok I'll do it when we get home..."
So Adieu fair blogging friends, I'm off to pack a days amusement for my darling baby boy. I'm sure he'll have to endure days like these for years to come...poor, poor Elijah.
