Trendy casual

My kid is cool. Like really cool.

If you have been around long enough you must remember the pink debate. It seems that shopping for school really brings out the fashionista in him. Over the years I have learned to shop online only. That way I can control what I show Little J for approval before I click confirmed, so we don’t end up with a pigmy goat for a pet and enough LEGOs to build a barn for it.

A few weeks ago we took Sophie, our guest from China for a stroll downtown Port Townsend and a little shopping spree. While browsing the quaint little shops on High Street we found ourselves in an art gallery. Little J liked a few paintings and a fire extinguisher. Paintings were expensive and the gallery owner insisted she must keep the extinguisher for safety so my son started admiring hand made silver jewelry. He asked if he can try on some rings so I checked with the sales lady. She proceeded to tell me that they look great if you stack a few together. Clearly she did not expect that her customer was my five year old.

Lucky for him there was a little silver band that fit him just right so he asked for the bill and the name of the artist and bought himself his first piece of jewelry. In his defense this was the first time he chose to spend my money on something he can potentially pawn. He is growing up so fast….

He wears the ring on his index finger like royalty. According to ehow, a ring on the index finger tend to emphasize personal attributes such as leadership, executive ability, ambition, and self-confidence. Obviously.

To top this up nicely he saw me buying his school clothes on sale today and quickly negotiated a pair of red skinny jeans. Lock up your girls dear friends, my boy is coming to a kindergarden near you this fall!

    I love it! I wish I could get my kids to embrace red skinny jeans. I think that time has passed. My youngest used to want everything “in rainbow” and my oldest used to insist on a cape for a special outing. Now we have come to plain black tees. Sigh. Love the jewelry story. xo
