We still have growing kids! My youngest did another overnight 3" growth. He is 13 years old and 6 ft tall and skinny - OMG - so skinny. He eats more than the rest of us and eats constantly - right now, he is putting away an entire bag of popcorn - after 3 corndogs, some pasta salad and an apple.
Needless to say, when he put on his jeans to go out last week, they looked like Capri pants, but in a bad way. Even his shirts were hitting him right at the jean top seam. They looked like they wanted to be half shirts.
Before now, we would just raid older brother's closet for things he did not wear anymore because he grew out of or just didn't wear, but DS#2 is no longer growing and doesn't live with us anymore.
Off to the store we go! Let's hope Kohl's has some deals - this kid needs a new wardrobe! We will more than likely do it in sets since they give you Kohls cash. He needs shorts for summer and shirts. We will get one pair of jeans for nicer occasions, but are holding off til fall to get more - he might grow again!
DD also needs a dress or nice slacks because she is going to see the musical Hamilton in a couple of weeks on a Friday night, so she needs to dress up just a bit. She has grown as well - though not as much as her brother - and her dresses are hitting her a little high in the waist. She has a straight waist, so it does not look good.
While we are out, since we have to combine trips into the city, I am hitting Joanns for some interfacing and batting as well as matching thread for my 2 quilts. While there, a customer is meeting me for a pick up. Then, we are off to Kohl's where we will meet up with Dad, then go for the Sushi Birthday Dinner we have been promising our daughter.
I don't love Sushi, but this child does - she could live on it.
Well, I am off to grab a quick bite to eat to tide me over, then answering emails and getting ready! Hope you are having a great day!
