I'm ironing for the first time in like a year I think.
Grandma Spiehs would not be proud! She irons her sheets before putting them on her bed! Strange I know...you sleep in them to make them wrinkled. She always said to me, "Oh, but they feel so good laying down for the first time after ironing them".
I'm sure she thinks it's strange for me to iron once a year!
I have a technique where I put the clothing on, spray it with water, and pat it down. Wrinkles out! ;) It's the slacker way!
I like the way the iron sounds and steams up after I've sprayed water down. I hate when I iron wrinkles right back into the clothing!
We went to Kohl's tonight to get a few things for our big family pictures (on my side) this weekend, and Daddy got something to wear for his one man art show that's in one month.
Mica saw an outfit in his section that he wanted to try on. It was a vest, tie and well the whole nine yards.
I let him try it on since I had to go try on something anyhow. He was pouting because he wanted the tie out of the vest. Can you tell that this kid has only ever worn a tie once? He wore one for my cousin Stacy's wedding when he was 3 years old.
He cleans up good!
Mica wanted what he tried on. The trouble was is that the pants that went with the set were huge! I told him, "No. We're not buying that".
Tears filled up his eyes and he started to cry. It's been awhile since I've seen Mica that way. I've never seen him cry over not getting a clothing item.
I told him that he could get a shirt and tie, just not that set. Then that way he could wear it to Daddy's show.
We found a blue button down shirt and an orange tie. I'm so glad because orange is his favorite color! His tears dried up, and a new smile formed on his face.
