-I also took the time to clean out all the kids' closets this week. Do you see the pattern here? When Chris is gone I just can't stop. Pierce got a huge boost in the wardrobe department since he inherited Ace's Alaska collection. We bought everything a little big when we lived in Alaska, for layering purposes, so now it all fits Pierce pretty well. Odette got all of Avalon's closet goodness as well. Which leaves a few opening for Ace and Avalon. I am loving these leggings sets, and corduroy pants for Avalon. Ace takes all fashion inspiration from Chris, so I basically buy him mini versions, this cotton sweater fits the bill. As do these jeans, and I love that they have the drawstring waist!
-Before Chris left he gave the kids a little pep talk as he always does (and I usually spy on it) "okay guys, be good for mom, don't make her any crazier than she already is. She loves you so much, so listen to her, be nice to each other, and don't play with lightsabers in the kitchen while she's cooking. Ace you're the man of the house, so take care of my mama!" It's all sweet and wonderful until Ace really took that to heart. This whole week "since I'm the man of the house I get to stay up late right?" no. "So, guys I'm the man of the house so you have to listen to me" no. "Mom, I can't go to school I'm the man of the house dad said so" no. "Okay mom I'm the man of the house and for dinner I think we should have ice cream then salad then pie" no.
It's time to overthrow this tiny dictator.
