Believe it or not, Kate will start Kindergarten in just short of a week. And I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the idea.

On Sunday I took her shopping for some new clothes.
We went to Justice...but that's definately not the place for us.
To say that I wasn't impressed is an understatement.
Which was surprising, because some of their summer and spring lines
were too cute.
So, we ended up at the mall.
Gap was completely EMPTY of all summertime clothes.
Seriously, I don't think they had five short sleeve shirts in the entire store.
We hit Gymboree next.
And my goodness, they can be so hit or miss.
Sometimes I want to buy the entire store and others I walk out
completely empty handed.
But they had a few cute things for Kate and Ethan.
There was one shirt that I thought was too cute...a little brown headed
girl walking a yorkie on a leash.
Could we get any closer to perfection?
I didn't think so.
But Kate said, "M-O-M...I am NOT going to wear THAT."
Ok. End of story.
We did agree on a few things, so I guess we accomplished something.
It only took us over an HOUR.
Well, as it turns out, we ended up with the wrong size on a skirt,
so I went to another store today for an exchange.
My mom was with us and she saw an outfit that she thought was too
stinkin' cute. And she told Kate she would love to get it for her.
And Kate said, "Granda, I wouldn't wear THAT."
(scrunch face included)
This was VERY FRUSTRATING for me.
She's only FIVE.
Why does she have to act like she's going on FIFTEEN?
...and if you choose to comment....
PLEASE don't tell me it's gonna get worse!! :)
