Perfect Moment Monday -- I'm Ready!

Some things are genetic. When I was in Junior High school (which is now Middle School), I remember laying out my clothes the night before for a couple of reasons.
  • First, I had just gotten new clothes and was excited to see how they would look together.
  • Second, I wanted things to run smoothly in the morning so I would layout my clothes the night before.
  • Third, I was excited for "tomorrow."
As I made my rounds saying goodnight to my three sons (sounds like the name to a great TV show!), I noticed that two of my middle school-aged boys had laid out their clothes for the following day.

It brought a smile to my face, remembering how I had done the same thing...not too many years ago!

Tessa does this, too!

I love that our kids can plan for their future. Today clothes, tomorrow who knows?

How funny! I was just having the same kind of memories last night as Zo was making me help her try on every pair of socks she owns. A glimpse of things to come.

Thanks for visiting my blog. Isn't it great to recognize the mundane as something special.

I was a freak about planning my outfits. If I got a new outfit I couldnt sleep that night I was so excited to wear it to school. I think I drove my mom nuts.
