I was hoping the mall would be dead. Huskers are playing football tonight. I
The boys were more then crazy while waiting for our photos! I mean running, giggling, jumping and taunting one another! I had to
My quest to look for a winter coat continued. It's my goal to find one with a metal zipper, not cheap plastic. One that will last through 2 boys. I first posted about this here. I found a heavy jacket at Kohls. It's a Silver Point Plaid Flannel Jacket.
Tonight I went to Children's Place, Gap Kids, Yonkers and Crazy 8. All of which had plastic zippers.
My last stop was Gymboree. The boys begged to go down the escalator. I had already taken going to the toy store away as punishment for misbehaving in Picture People. Did I ever mention that I'm slightly afraid of the escalator? I almost lost my balance when I was holding my cousin as a baby. Plus my older sister threatened to push me down the steps when we were kids. Kids! I just picture falling and slamming my head against the metal edges. OUCH! DEADLY!

I bought this metal zipper pea coat for $50. It was originally $70. I got $25 knocked off of that with my Gymbucks:
It's a little dressy, looks super great on Mica, has a metal zipper, grow room, a hood, it wasn't too expensive and it's neutral enough that any hat will work as long as it's not black. If he goes sledding, I might make him wear his crappy, hard to zip puffy coat from last year.
Other Features of this coat:
- Microfleece lining; nylon sleeve lining
- Detachable button hood
- Inset zip placket
- Front pockets
- Machine washable
