outfit of the day(bird): head & shoulders

shirt ~ Marshalls
skirt ~ J. Crew, thrifted
shoes ~ hand-me-down from sister
necklace ~ NY & Co.
bracelets, vintage, thrifted

one of our nephews is a trip. he tells jokes and has this way about him that he's always making people laugh. most times, it's intentional, but sometimes it's not.

our sister emailed us the other day, telling us that he had just taken a shower. as those of you who are moms might know, sometimes you just have to ask your kids if they cleaned everything. i literally have to go through a checklist of all the body parts with my kids some days. anyway, he had taken a shower, and she asked him if he had cleaned everything.

well, for who knows how long, he was following his bottle's description, and was only washing his head and shoulders, per the name of what he thought was body wash. my sister informed him that 1. that was shampoo not body wash, and 2. it was just the name, not the directions. needless to say, she sent him back into the shower.

we told her that perhaps she should buy him this.
