Stars & Stripes Forever

One of my favorite holidays is the Fourth of July and I have started the hunt for a cute red, white and blue outfit for P. Thought I’d put together a curated list of what I’ve come across (and thought it was only fair to include girls clothes as well.  If I had a girl, I’d be broke!)  And I know, I lean towards a more conservative look for kids (when you search “boat shoes” and “nubucks” for your 3 1/2 year old, you might be living on the wrong coast.)

Yesterday was P’s first day of summer and he wanted to stay home and play games (which is fine, but not when your day starts at 6:30 am).  This morning he was up at 5:45 am yelling “unsnuggle yourself!!!!” and yanking my arm to get me out of bed.   And then he was telling me he was hungry (um, not at 6 am you’re not).  I put him back in bed.  He told me he’d be more comfy in my bed but we’ve already made that mistake with a 90+ pound labrador.

Weekend will be swimming at the pool and then we have a wedding tomorrow night (I still have not managed to get into my salon and my hair is more trailer park than ombre.  Never again.)  The last time I got my brows waxed, she went too far and I ended up looking like a gang member.  So now I have bad dark roots and eyebrows that are starting to grow in (imagine that look?), plus no tan in a Kate Spade dress.  Basically I feel like the bus driver from South Park.
