I like to hope that I’m not the only mother out there with this problem . . . but every time the weather changes I am caught off guard once again by the fact that my kids have nothing to wear. We’ve only just finished acquiring enough tights and snowboots for everyone, and then all of the sudden they’re supposed to wear flip flops and shorts. And we don’t have any. Last year’s versions are either torn, stained, too small, or missing entirely. The reason this is coming to mind at the moment is that fact that it is absolutely gorgeous outside, the tulips are finally blooming, and I’m getting that ominous feeling that we are, once again, unprepared for it. It occurs to me that it’s just possible that one or two of you are in the same dilemma. Your girls can’t continue to wear the long sleeved velvet dress to church indefinitely, as handy as that would be. So in the interests of the greater good, and under the general heading of spreading sweetness and light, I am giving you a 20% off coupon for Amoretti. Hopefully that will do something to ease the strain.
