Thanks for the inspiration for my title, Jess.
The kids and I went to the mall today. Always a good time. First of all, I found a dress for Kendall that was so unbelievably adorable at Gymboree. And she already had brown velvet mary janes (thanks Granny Beth!) that match it perfectly. But I could not bring myself to spend 40$ on a dress for her. Although I may go back and get it. I mean, it is gorgeous. But, of course, then I would have to buy a bow to match it. Sigh. Anyone have Gym Bucks they would love to loan me? I will take this opportunity to say that a few weeks ago, I spent $40 on an outfit for her but it was actually three separate pieces that can all be worn separately so I felt better about that (side note: I bought that outfit to match a bow that I purchased for her. So I spent 40 bucks on an outfit to match a bow that cost me $3.50. Shut up, I have a disease.) Plus, will I be able to find Cason anything that matches a brown velvet dress where he will look cool and not like Little Lord Fauntleroy?
We ate lunch at the mall, and we sat next to a man dressed as a woman. No, not for Halloween. Just ... because. He was definitely a man and he was definitely wearing women's clothes. He was also carrying a Hello Kitty purse. Which I found to be the most puzzling thing about the whole situation. I mean, if you, your whole life wanted to wear women's clothes, and finally you said, "To heck with it" and you started dressing like a woman, would a Hello Kitty purse be the first bag you would choose to carry? I mean, wouldn't you want to go with Coach or Brighton or something of that nature?
Discuss amongst yourselves.
