I read about a blogger in need on White Trash Mom and wanted to spread the word. Anne writes a food column for Family.com and her personal blog is Cooking With Anne. She is a mom to seven kids (!) and her husband was critically injured in a work-related accident (he is an ironworker and fell of the roof of a building.) Thankfully he was just released from ICU. Please visit the lovely White Trash Mom ladies for information on how to help.
So far the standard school attire thing has gone well for us, although convincing 5 and 6-year-olds to keep their shirts tucked in all day is like herding cats. Luckily Miss C has a penchant for jumpers. The Childrens Wear Outlet jumpers have been great (I do not recommend their polo shirts.) JC Penney’s school uniform line is on sale and they are offering free shipping with purchases of $99 or more. I bought two of their Izod brand polos and the quality is great. WalMart brand polos aren’t too shabby, either. Today we hit half-price day at a consignment sale and I bought Miss C a Children’s Place khaki jumper in perfect condition for $2.50. Woot!
