Peanut has a certain love for his clothes. I could give him clothes for a present and he would be completely ecstatic about it. Once, we were surprising the kids with concert tickets so we told them we were going to a fictitious store called “World of Socks”. When the reveal happened, Phoenix was angry that we lied to him and Peanut was in tears that we weren’t going sock shopping. (Lesson learned – don’t surprise my kids.)
Whether it’s hats, belts, vests, the kid can accessorize. When he’s hooked on a certain article of clothing or accessory, I often have to make sure he’s not sneaking off to school re-wearing it.
This is his robe. He loves that robe. It was temporarily misplaced for awhile but was found and washed today. Peanut finished dinner and announced that he was putting on his robe. He spent the rest of the evening lounging in his robe and jeans. It was his comment of “I wish I could wear my robe to school” that is going to have me paying extra attention to what he’s wearing to school.
