I have a massive migraine that I am pretty sure is steming from the two grand I have spent on back to school. Funny thing is the kids didn't really need much until I started then all of a sudden the list kept getting longer and longer. This year I decided to spend the extra money on quality clothes. I would like to not have to buy them anything else until next summer so most of their stuff was rather expensive compared to my usually bargin basement bargains! Xavier is small, decivingly small. The only pants we could find him that fit nicely and didn't look like he was swimming in them were the $45 ones at the GAP. I love that they have the size 5 in slim and the adjustable waist I will say they are nice and thick and look really good on him but $45!!!! Klausine got the most stuff because she was really lacking stuff the matched. She had a lot of odds and ends but not many nice outfits. As of this afternoon she has more nice outfits than I can count.
Yesterday we did the bulk of the shopping with my mom. I was so happy to have her with me. We're really past the age where you can just buy the kids whatever and it looks good. We have entered the phase of trying on a million different kinds of pants and man was I glad my momma was there to help button buttons and snap snaps.
I'm really looking forward to back to school now and if I didn't have this migraine I think I would be in a really good mood! I have managed to bleach the floors and get a lot of clothes and toys put away. I would be really happy if the house was spotless for the first week of back to school so I can concentrate on getting the kids where they need to be :)
Ok time to get all the furniture back on the clean floors. I have some pictures to post of cours but I don't wanna right now ;)
