I feel like I went to LA last week for 2 days, came home, and King is a little boy. Why do they change so much while you are gone? He was just telling me stories with random words that don’t make sense right before I left and now he is carrying full on conversations of words that all go together and make sense. It is mind boggling to me. I know everyone says it, but why do they grow up so fast? Don’t they know that if they slow down growing just a little bit that their moms and dads will be so much happier ha. It would give me so much more time to soak in all the moments, time, and everything in between.
Where we are moving in just a few weeks I have been going through all King’s clothes from the past 10 months while we have lived with my in-laws. It is crazy to me that only 10 months ago he was a completely different kid than he is now. He dressed differently, acted differently, and I was completely different too. I am packing up all the clothes that look “baby-ish” and putting them away while only keeping out his clothes that make him look like a little boy. It is so hard to pack them away, but it is the perfect time to go through everything with moving. It is crazy to me that the clothes that I have snagged him at Old Navy have held up amazingly and still look brand new in his closet after 10 months. This little man is a thrasher, he ruins and stains clothes on all of his adventures. We have had to get rid of countless things due to perma-mud stains on them, but the Old Navy clothes are never in that pile. He looks like a little man in his Old Navy clothes, I mean just look at him!
I have been going through my closet as well and pulling out pieces that I no longer wear anymore. Isn’t it crazy how fast styles change and something new is in? I love to snag my pieces at Old Navy because they are so affordable and they are on trend. Then when that trend seems to drift away quickly I am not mad at myself for spending over $200 on a dress that was in trend for only a few months.
We can’t wait to be heading to Jackson Hole today, I think King is going to love it there with all the horses, dirt, wild life, and everything in between. Me, I am more of not an animal person, but you do what your kids love right? I hope you have the happiest 4th of July!!
