Geeze, they have reconstructive memories, don't they.
Ohhh! I like that . . . Reconstructive memories. Can I use that???!
Yes...I get that as well. Why the heck can't kids just tell you what they think instead of playing along with what they think you think they think if you know what I'm thinking.
I think I followed that . . . :)
I remember Mom buying me a couple of pairs of demin(?) jeans. They were the worst fitting, hottest, ugliest jeans she could find. Like, they looked like riding breeches up top and skin tight at the ankles. But they were probably 2 for a buck so in her eyes they were great. I dutifully wore them, through 7th grade and into the 8th. I wore them everywhere, to wear them out but they wouldn't; I've never seen something last like those did. I finally outgrew them and when it was time for a new pair, I bought my own Levis with my own 4-H money...
Yep. The ugly ones NEVER wear out!. Ah. Mom's bargains. I think we both need to address that one in a blog post. Did I ever tell you about the clothes she bought as a gift. Then asked me to pay for? Funny story really . . .
Haha, oh Diane, that is so funny... :) By the way, thank you so much for the prayers, I will be back to blogging Saturday, I have a huge CPA mid term and things have got a little better.... I stopped for a little because I was sad and I didn't want to be a downer... I am getting centered again. My Heavenly Father loves me as he loves all of us... I just needed to remember that. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog... grand kids really do give the best prayers :)
We blog friends need each other! Happy to know that the pain will soon be a memory. Good luck on your exam! Break a leg! (Oh . . . wait . . . that's for theatre. Can you tell where my experience lies?) I mean . . . knock 'em out of the park! Or something like that. Thinking of you still!
lolMy son would never wear something he didn't like lolYou had a good son lol
Looking back, I realize that. I didn't know it then. I just thought he liked them . . . ^^

Thank you, Ugochi! I'm finding out now what my kids thought of the clothes I put them in. It's a voyage of discovery . . . Remind me to tell you about the little sailor dress I put my daughter in . . . And I thought they looked so cute!!!Welcome to the neighbourhood!!!
That is so funny...
Thank you Ginger! It just proves that appearances can be misleading!!!
And here I thought Erik loved the pinkle suit! Kudos to him for wearing pinkle, no matter what his reasons. hee hee! I would totally be into pinkle. Darn it! Now I can't stop saying pinkle, Diane! :)
Secretly, I still think he did . . . little monkey! It's just now, that he is this older, manly man that he can't admit it. :)
and I like that word, too. Pinkle. It's just so . . . expressive!
Thank you for visiting! Drop by again!
