We are having a true New England winter.
A winter like the ones I remember having when I was a kid.
I love it!! And I LOVE that Tommy loves it and wants to play in the snow every chance he gets!!
What I didn't love is that his budget boots fell off his feet every other step. Want to piss a 3-year-old off. Drag him inside to change his cold wet socks every 10 minutes when he is trying to play in the snow.
Well I finally bit the bullet. Pulled out some fabric money (money from the business goes back to the business at this point) and went to LL Bean (just like any good New Englander would do...helps that I pass LL Bean on my way home from work)
Tommy got new boots...nice new boots. even better new boots with a great warranty - if they fall apart before Jack can wear them - Jack will get new boots too!!
But the sweetest, and most special part was, after trying on his new boots and stomping around the house, totally unprompted, Tommy walked up to me, gave me a big hug and kiss and said "Thank you for my new boots Mommy!!"
