Thrifting and Eye Color

 N and I stumbled upon an amazing thrift store in downtown San Francisco a few weeks ago. I love thrift stores. There have been MANY times in my life where I simply haven't had much in the way of spare money. Somehow, the vitals are always covered, but those little splurges on clothing, silly trinkets, and useless pretties can sometimes ONLY exist through a local thrift store.

This particular thrift store is HUGE. It advertises that 4,000 NEW items are stocked each day. Needless to say, the children's section is a thrifting dream. Name-brand clothing for less than a dollar. Ridiculous scores all over the place.

We went back two days ago because there also happens to be an amazing Taqueria across the street. We've been having some chilly weather...nothing unusual for the area, but more than K's wardrobe could handle. So, I was on the lookout for some long pants for K and a sweater or two. When I found the skinny cords in K's size...well...what mother could possibly have resisted? And the train sweater? Found by K in a brief moment of interest in his section. 

 It's always so pleasing when I find clothing that just FITS K's personality to the T. It's really hard to spend money on quality children's clothing when we just spend the day at the park. So, I end up buying cheap t-shirts and sweatpants that don't speak to his individualness at all. Not that I particularly CARE what clothes K wears. It's just that it's very satisfying when I watch him pull together an outfit that clearly pleases him and provides him a true outlet for expressing his individuality.

Also, is it just me, or does he look like he's strutting a model pose?

On a side note, K's eyes are changing color. They used to be a stunning blue. EVERY one commented on them because they were SO gorgeous. These days though, they're edging towards a hazel-grey. N and I both have hazel eyes, so blue always seemed a bit odd, but I'm still surprised to see them changing color at 2.5!


I Love reading your comments, and I try very hard to respond to each one. Thank you for taking the time to respond!
