For the past week or so, I’ve noticed all the excitement over new school clothes. It’s been a long time since I’ve had to do the whole “what am I going to wear on the first day of school?!” But I have so enjoyed watching a bunch of girls, through the blogosphere, get ready for the biggest day of the school year: the first one!
I often comment on how I miss those days, when my kids were young and excited about school clothes and new school supplies. Well, actually the Girl was the only one excited about any of those things. They boys were all “meh". She would organize all her stuff by color and animal (kittens in the front of the notebook, horses and unicorns to the back) and of course, write her name on everything.
I thought those days were long gone for me. Little did I know, a simple trip to Wal-Mart on a chilly weekend in Ohio would bring such excitement over a new shirt. For the Skater, no less!
