I did the noble and dreaded deed of taking my 9 year old Butch Bee school clothes shopping. I can only take one kid at a time, for the simple reason I want to kill them all if I take them out of the hive together. I mean literally kill them. I would line them up under my little dodge caravan and hit them like a squirrel running giddy across the road. Is that too harsh?...Well if u have ever tried shopping with 3 kids at the same time, you would know this is a mild punishment.
My son is set for school. I spent only about 200 bucks on him. Boys are so easy to please. Take them to Old Navy or to Gap and they find what they want, and that's the end of it. We had to make a token stop at Target. I like buying socks and underwear there. I don't know why. He claimed he needed a new backpack. This kid has about 3 of them. The one he picked out was 60 bucks. 60 damn bucks for a stinking backpack. Now in my day I could go to Big Wheel and get a back pack for like 8 dollars. Came complete with a Trapper Keeper and a Michael Jackson notepad. Hell yes! Today the back packs come with nothing but a high price tag. My mom wondered if they were lined in gold. We looked. They aren't.
I am a people watcher. I have been all my life. I don't like being social ,I would rather stand on the side and make fun of the people I see. Its better for my pysci that way.
I notice a trend. A Horrid trend. Do you ever notice that men like to wear their pants below there gut. Like the squeeze into a size say 32 when they really where a 52. Why don't men buy pants that fit around the waist? Do they not realize how foolish this looks? Us women, we like to try and hide our mid section, so we buy pants that fit so tight around the mid section , we cant breath. Why do we do this?..Makes the tummy look flatter. Think about it, have you ever seen a woman wear a pair of slacks, trousers, jeans or whathaveyou with her gut hanging over the top of the pants? It does not happen. I think men need to take a lesson from us ladies and wear clothes that fit. Stop living in the world that you think you still wear the same size you did in high school. You don't. Go out and buy the husky pants, its ok...Cover up the beer belly fellas, you will look leaner, and cleaner and well kept. Its just a bit of fashion advice from me to you....
Next week is Blondie Bees turn. Lord have mercy on me that day.
I bought my Boo Bee some Dora underwear. I want her to stop peeing in a diaper and start whizzing in the crapper like the rest of us. Well most of us anyway. She will be 3 next Tuesday. This is a crying shame. I am lazy and there is no reason why she isnt wiping her own ass. Starting in the morning this all going to change.
I have a question . Blondie bees little friend who is going into second grade has her own cell phone. Is this normal? My parents did not even allow me to call friends till damn near 6th grade. Are my kids social outcasts because I am not gonna spend money on cell phones for them to lose? What damn 6 or 7 year old needs her OWN cell phone?
So these are my delimas for this day in history.
*Guys wear your pants around your waist, not below it.
*Back pack makers don't sell 60 dollar backpacks unless a kid comes for free with it
*don't let your small kids have cell phones, they will lose it or possibly order a pizza with it.
