Boys gone handsome ... Part 1

I want my SONshine to always look good. I mean, who doesn't, right? The truth is, though it's much easier with girls than boys.
Look and compare boys' and girls' clothing departments at any store and you'll see what I mean.
I had a little girl's mommy said to me once: "You're so lucky you have a boy! You don't have to care what to dress him in every day - just jeans and a t-shirt".
 Well, I can't agree with that. Anthony always looks sharp, no matter if he's going to Church, school or playground. I refuse to have "that's just a boy" attitude. I know, some moms are rolling their eyes at me right now. Oh, well. That is how I am

I buy a lot of clothes. Too much? I guess, you could say that. I sell it on Ebay after Anthony grows out of it. That is exactly how I han afford buying some higher-end clothes - I sell them after I use them!
My all-time favorite brand is Mini Boden. I just love their quality and wearability. Mini Boden t-shirts with appliques are always fun. Anthony absolutely loves them.
Another thing I buy from them all the time is their jersey baggies shorts. I buy them in all colors year after year.
I have to add, that I buy them at the end of the season for the next year 80% of the time, when they are deeply discounted. This way after I am done with them, I can get my money back after I re-sell them on Ebay. Like, last week I placed a huge order for next summer. Some shirts were discounted to $7, and shorts to $10!

Happy 5th Birthday!

My SONshine turned 5 yesterday. I can't believe how fast time flies. I thank our Lord every day for such a wonderful gift I have been given.

My little boy, I hope you know how much you're loved. I will never get tired of kissing your precious face. I will never have enough of your tight hugs. I will never love anyone more than I love you. My love to you grows with every new morning. Sometimes it's so intense that it hurts.  You make my life lighter brighter and happier. Thank you for being you! Thank you for showing me what MOM's love is.
