First Shoes

It happens twice a year, and twice a year I can't ignore it... the dreaded children's clothing consignment sale. You know, the big one, where mothers run and dive and dig... it really isn't my idea of fun. But, let's face it, when it comes to my children's play clothes I'm a bit miserly and consignment sales can be good for miserly moms.

The boys desperately needed shorts and there was a certain pair of Modge-Podge encrusted khaki pants that needed to be replaced. With Bunny at my side we faced and conquered. Forty-five minutes of shopping and less than $40 spent, the boys have the shorts they need and Sister has her first pair of sneakers. The boys, of course, could care less. She, on the other hand, is very, very proud.
