Back to school clothes are in house and kid approved - I should say:"Kid selected and Mommy approved." My way of dealing with this task is to take the boys into the store and tell them to select a certain number of shirts from this rack and that one over there. Now select your pants and shorts from these racks. We tell them the number (size) that fits them and let them shop. They are in a frenzy for a few minutes and then it begins to get old to them. That's when Mommy and Nana step in and make the rest of the selections with approval from the boys. It works really well. Mommy makes the decision and each boy thinks that he made all the decisions - and for the most part they are correct. The boys selected Taco Bell for lunch - the decision had something to do with certain cars that are in the kid's meal. No food was wasted, though.
Shopping was a success and now is history. Next comes shoes, undies, socks, and school supplies. The boys have to participate in the shoe deal but otherwise they won't have to get involved. All is well that ends well.
That's the end for today. Tomorrow is another sunrise. No plans but still lots to do.
