Today, after lunch, according to our daily schedule, Cody and Caden went upstairs to get dressed and read books. (No, we generally aren't out of our pajamas until the afternoon unless we have somewhere to be....just one of the many benefits of homeschooling!) While I was cleaning up, I heard footsteps coming down the stairs and when I peered around the corner, Cody was dressed in a button down shirt with a tie. While fighting giggles, I asked him why he was so dressed up and he promptly replied, "Because, Mom. I want to look good for Kimmie!" (Kimmie is a little girl his age who comes over on Mondays for her piano lesson.) We ended up compromising and he's currently wearing a polo with nice jeans. I thought perhaps he should change into something a little bit more...ummm...every day.
I thought this stuff wasn't supposed to start for AT LEAST another six years or more!
I think we'll save all those shirts and ties for another year. Or two. Or eight.
