On Wednesday, right after school, I took The Goon Squad shopping for fall.
Why do I wait until until midway through September to go back to school shopping you ask? Well, one because August and September are super busy for me, but also because this is when Old Navy has that crazy kids sale.
I was just in time too because it was 45 degrees this morning and some people grew out of their jackets from last year.
I also deftly avoided being tricked in to buying recorders. You know, recorders. The loudest, least musical instrument of them all. Before I had children I vowed I would never allow them into my home and so far, so good.
That being said I was talked into buying a fleece that was at least two sizes too large for the boy because it had skulls on it. My entire family are suckers for things with skulls on them. I’m not sure what our collective problem is, but it is pervasive. Whatever. My son can wear the fleece as winter dress. We will say he was influenced by Shannon Hoon, or that guy from Greta.
Anyway, I wrote about it over on That’s Right, You Heard Me and you can go read all about it over there, and you totally should. Especially if you want to feel better about not brushing your hair, or not brushing your child’s hair.
You should also do it to make me look good. God knows I need help doing that.
