So, I asked him where he wanted to go. Of course he wanted to know where the girlies went. So I told him Target and that is were he wanted to go. I let him decided what he wanted to look at first. And he decided school supplies.
He had a real hard time deciding what he wanted. There were a couple of things that I felt he had to have, like pencils. But, other than that, I didn't care what he got, as long as he could use it. Just like the others he had to have a notebook, binder and folder. His didn't have to match but he had such a tough time choosing between sport logos and animals and cartoon pictures.
He ended up with a Star Wars prayer/quiet time journal. A folder and notebook with a yellow Lamborghini on it (my personal fav) and a binder with a tiger on it. He also got crayons, pens, colored pencils, markers, erasers, a ruler, scissors and a pencil box. He got a little bit more because he didn't really have anything. Plus, I think those are things all kids should have for their first day of "school."
Taking him clothes shopping was the easy part. He got to pick two shirts on his own. Both I liked. Both t-shirts. I picked him out a few plain t-shirts because they were on sale. Then he got two pair of shorts. One was the cotton sports kind and the other was camo cargo shorts. I thought NG was hard to fit. Boop has not grown in width in years. But, he has grown in height. Waist band and shoulder width wise he can keep wearing the clothes he has. But length wise on the shorts and the t-shirts he needs bigger sizes. The boy eats. But, he doesn't get any thicker. Just taller and just like his daddy I am told!
Of course, he doesn't care what the clothes look like. Or even if he got any new clothes. But, it had been awhile since he had any. So we made the effort. He is such a cutie!
Lastly we looked for a movie. We are currently on the search for Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. No luck. But he did get a Cherry Icee. All was right with the world. He really is such a special boy. And I am glad he and I got some one on one time .. . .
