Ergo, I raced off to KMart to find a pair that would work. Fortuitously, they had one pair left in his size that did not have belt loops. You see, dress code at his school requires that pants with belt loops must have a belt. This isn't too much of a hardship for girls since they can use scarves etc. For boys... not so much. For boys with sensory issues... ick patoohy! I also found a very soft short sleeve white shirt, of course, they had not one single long sleeve shirt in his size. ::sigh:: I did mention to his father that they might look for one at their local store this weekend. ::crosses fingers that they might find one::
My dearest husband missed the concert because he went straight from work, wearing his Where the Wild Things Are t-shirt, to go have dinner with the red-headed step-child, and thence to the movie theater to see the new movie. I hope that it's as good as the previews look. This is The Book™ which he would read to her when she was little. They've bought each other shirts with logos on them whenever they could find them (and I've helped, I admit it!). Whenever they talk about it, their eyes light up. I am so pleased that they are going to do this. It's special moments like these that children remember forever... no matter what age they are.
As for me, I'm going to crack a bottle of wine, pull out some cheese and crackers, pull up a good book (another Liaden® book by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller... if you like Science Fiction and haven't read these, I highly recommend them!!!!), and hang out with the cats. Star is supervising this as I speak but I'm sure that I can get him to come join me in the bedroom. When I got cat food for the Big Bowl™... I got Greeeeeeennnnniiiiiiieeeeeeesssssss.... mmmmmmmm. (okay, maybe I don't love them... but the Teenage Mutant Ninja Kitty Horde goes wild!! ::grin::)
