I did however, make sure each kid got one of his favorite t-shirts and I kept my favorite as well.
Bear choose his Dad's "Transformers" shirt, they both LOVED Transformers.
My favorite shorts he wore were his camo ones. OMG how I LOVED to see him in them, he just rocked those shorts, he really did.
I was looking for something else in our closet two nights ago and picked them up...oh man, so many memories, even the day we bought them came back in my mind.
Anyway, I knew they would be a little big but with a belt I thought maybe it could work, so I asked Kody if he would like them.
He said, "Of course I do Mom...anything of Dad's I would love"
I told him they would probably be a little big and he didn't care, promising me that he'd hike them up with a belt no problem.
Well, yesterday morning he came out of his room with one of his Daddy's favorite outfits on.
I wanted to cry, I wanted to laugh, I just wanted to remember the site of our son walking proudly in his Dad's outfit, getting ready to leave for school, forever.
Although a few kids teased him about his clothing being on the "kid-ish" side, when he stopped to explain to them how much those clothes meant to him, they were all apologetic when they "got it".
Minus the long hair, I just can't believe how much of Karl I see in Kody. :)
My real good friend Karrie invited the boys and I for dinner tonight. It'll be nice to get out for a little while.
