I went shopping for Isabel on my lunch break, at Target. She needed cheap solid-colored shorts as she has outgrown the ones she has. Four pairs of solid knit shorts (pink, hit pink, light blue and purple), for $3.50 each. You cannot beat that.
The following evening, a Friday, I took the kids to the mall for dinner and a stroll. Feeling bad that I have not gotten my son new clothes since school started last August (he did get some for Christmas but not much), I offered to take him shopping at JC Penny for shorts and/or jeans.
After several changes, Jake ends up with two pair of shorts and one pair of jeans, and I end up out $76! Holy SMOKES! Why can't his items cost the same as a 5 year olds? *sigh*
Let me leave you with a smile.
THIS grainy video is from my cell phone (which STINKS. I have been eyeballing some new ones). It shows Isabel dancing in front of the dressing room mirrors while her brother tries on pants. I sent it to one of my sisters, who cracked up and said Isabel was doing the "Elaine" dance.
