They call him Mr. Fancypants!

"Mommy!"

"Yes, dearest child who somehow cannot speak anywhere near a normal volume"

"We need to get fancy clothes for Easter!"

"Wha...? Ok...why?"

"Because that's What You Do. You buy fancy clothes for Easter."

First off...seriously? This is why we're paying the big bucks? For him to go to a church pre-k so he can learn the true meaning of Easter--bunnies, parties, egg hunts and fancy clothes?

Second off..."fancy" in this house simply means long pants without holes in the knees. Oh...and socks. And underpants. Fancy clothes definitely means underpants.

Then he went on...

"I want pants with polka dotted Easter eggs! And a shirt with polka dotted Easter eggs too! That'd be pretty fancy, don'tcha think, Mommy?"

Oh, baby! And at that moment, I knew that all was not lost.

I am not going out to buy any clothes in pastels just for one day-fancy or not!

Monica...I'm the person who still wears my wedding dress! Only because I wore something I already had in my closet...and it's still in my closet 11 years later. That should say something about how I feel about purchasing "wear once" clothing! :)

Tee! Hee! So awesome to see how their little minds work isn't it? And oh Lord yes, the volume of kids. I think Little Buddy increased his volume tremendously when we had Little Munchkin. lol

Now that would make quite the fashion statement!

As much as I love clothes and how cute they make little girl accessories, I'm also a firm believer that I need to get my money's worth out of the clothes before they go into storage for the next sibling. Which is why I shop clearance or gently-used stores, because technically, it's already gone through an older child and still held up.

You'll have to get pics of his "fancy" outfit. ;)
