10/1/10 Who Told You You're Allowed To Grow Up?!

We spent last afternoon and evening at three stores getting DS2 a shoulder to toe outfit for the Homecoming Dance next week...suit, shirt, tie, socks, belt, and shoes...I said 'shoulder to toe' because he wanted a top hat...yes, a top hat...Where would one even buy a top hat these days? He said he wanted a cane too and that he wanted to go as Mr. Peanut...funny boy....I informed him it wasn't a Halloween costume party.

Just one thing I want to know...WHO TOLD YOU YOU'RE ALLOWED TO GROW UP?!

What happened to my little baby (second from the left below)?!!



Yes, thanks to your suggestions (thank you) and then 4, count them 4 trips to the Target Photo Place (after getting some of them done on the Staples-not-so-photo-quality copier) to redo the bad ones (over and over because the Target scanner sucks and left smudges and lines every time...you wouldn't believe me if I told you what I went through...let's just say the gal felt so bad that she gave me a full refund and I didn't even ask or complain)...the hall is done (thanks again Diane for the wall quote).

OK, almost done...I'm still considering the quote for the other wall (there's my baby again second from the right...God I feel old). As my youngest sister reminded me...we'll be moving soon...every house that we've lived in, the minute I hang a wall of kid photos we move...so I waited 9 years and this is the longest we've been in any home...wonder where we'll be moving...somewhere warm I hope...it's freezing here, but I digress...

OK, he's still my baby...see...this is how he really felt after hours of shopping with Mom (and then I made him try it all on again at home)...Do I dare tell him to tie his shoe...I think not...he's got to have some level of independence now that he's in High School...
...do you think he'll let me chaperone the dance?...hee-hee.

Happy Weekend all!

Oh - what a cutie! I can't imagine high school. I'm having a hard time with Kindergarten.

Oh my heavens, what a Sweetheart!! They do grow up too fast.. I love looking at old photos and watching them grow up all over again - a good rainy day thing! Enjoy your weekend!

He is so handsome! And he looks just like his mother.

My daughter went to her homecoming last weekend. I agree that they grow up WAY too fast.

Don't forget about our agreement to introduce him (at least) to my DD! He looks just great....so does the photo wall!

Love the quote on the wall. That is a great idea. Is it Vinyl? Did you cut it yourself?

Google 'wall vinyl quotes' (I think they have some at the stores now too)...my LB friend here Diane sent it to me as inspiration for the book (too cool isn't it?). Very easy to put up...made sure it was level, taped it in place and then you just rub it on and remove the backing paper it was on (come off with a hairdryer anytime you want...my sis does one every year for the holidays over her mantle).
