For the past few weeks, I’ve been working like a maniac!
50+ hour work weeks have kept me away from doing some of the things I most enjoy…
Late night dinner with the ladies, Reality T.V. with mi madre, and most importantly, hang time with my chipmunk, Zac. To make up for time lost, I took the most important man I know out for an evening at the park.
The weather had been awesome the entire day. I couldn’t miss a moment!
Life has gotten quite hectic with a few events at The Gap as well as my new position and transfer coming up. I hadn’t had much time to update MOM.ME
Zac has been growing a ton!
His face is changing, sense of humor is over the top, and believe it or not, so has his energy. He’s becoming much more over protective and social as his vocabulary grows. With this NEW-FOUND ZAC, its time for an upgrade in wardrobe.
My Mom or as Zac likes to say, “Ya-ya” and I went window shopping to see what sales would be going on for the kids.
We were DRAGGED in to The Children’s Place by their unavoidable “$5 Tees” Ad on Fulton Street.
After remembering my more than generous employee discount at Gap, I reneged, we left out empty handed but, DO check out their sale… TONS to offer at The Children’s Place.
With the Chipmunk growing, I’m hoping to maintain his bow-tie. I’d say he favors the clean lines but the Tie definitely adds fun.
His SUPER fashionista Grandma- Mrs Jamison is known to find THE most insane and unheard of sales ever known to man. Of course, she ran into Daffy’s which is now going out of business and ran into these cool finds for the Zacster.
|MOSCHINO Orig Retail Price $85
|Moschino Orig Retail Price $133
|Diesel Orig. Retail Price $85
Each show ranges from about $85-$133 actual retail price. Mrs Jamison and her wonderful self managed to get these funky Diesel tennis shoes for $30 bucks. I fell in love with them the moment she’d text the photo’s. Anyone who knows Diesel knows their products last forever and a day, not to mention, the shoes are without a doubt comfortable. I wanted to stay away from the “Toddler-Like” round toe in the Moschino shoes and kinda liked the maturity and spirit of the Diesel shoe for my big boy.
Accessories for boys can be one of the toughest things to come by.
Sometimes as parents, we’ll spend the entire day hopping from store to store praying we’ll find that one perfect thing for our guys to wear; meanwhile, the Mom over on the opposite side of the store happily skips to the cashier with her cute girly bows and bandanas.
One thing I’ve been lucky enough to learn is that, our guys know what they like. Give them an opportunity to play around and get a feel for what they want. Maybe on a shopping trip, grab a hat. Try it on. They’ll tell you if they think its hot or not.
I’ve been lucky enough to have the coolest guy around! Zac would GLADLY inform me if he’s not digging his look. For the first few months, my family and I realized he had a fascination with watches. He’d just stare and drool just a little more than usual when his God-Father passed by… eyes fixated on the watch alone. The moment he turned 1 1/2, I figured it was time I tried it out. Since then, it’s become a staple in his every day look.
Not to mention the signature Messenger cap, Bow Tie, Neck Tie just to add a few are his go-to pieces.
More recently, Zac has fallen in love with “The Back Pack” (or as he would say, “Bah-Patch”). Oh boy, we couldnt DARE leave without it. While we were shopping for his Daddy Sponsored birthday threads, we stumbled across a football backpack at The Children’s Place.
From then on, the two haven’t parted ways.
It’s a great way to give them a start of independence if they haven’t started Day Care already. Not to mention, it takes a load off the purse and the baby bag.
A smooth step out of baby days and into Toddler-ism.
Here are a few Highlights of cute looks I’ve stumbled across from Toddler Boys
