I bought two Mini Rodini's new items for Landon and Nea from Thumbeline , another new retailer for Suvi Ainoa. I like all my retailers. I think they have really good taste :) Not just because they choose Suvi Ainoa but all the other amazing clothes they have there. It is hard not to buy anything when you browses their stores.
The horse is for Landon and the peacock is for Nea. This morning I tried to put on the sweatshirt for Landon, and he didn't want, he said I want the peacock one. I said, that is for Nea, he said no Landon wants. I said, that is for girl, you are a boy. Boys can't wear that. He asked why?
Hmm, that is a good question. In his eyes they are just pictures of animals he likes, today her prefer peacock over horse. And in my eyes and my mind, how many predefined rules are there? are those rules good boundaries or just limitation?
The end: Landon still wears the horse shirt, because he realized the peacock T is way too small and he didn't want it anymore.
I want to share a few stories of Landon, one is I found them rather amusing and second is I want to write them down so I won't forget as time goes by.
Here is the first story...
One of his pre-school's admission rule is the children must be fully potty trained, so we took his potty training pretty seriously and always praised him for every little success.
One day we went to Nordstrom. I went to the ladies room which is next to the stores elevator, after I came out of the door and there were many people waiting for the elevator, and here came our Landon, clapping his hands and cheering loudly: Hooray! Mummy, you did it!!! You did it!!! Good job!!! Potty Power!!!
p.s. I asked him if I can take a picture for him, he said... ok if you take a picture of my car first. He loves his cars.
Warehouse 11 is another new home for Suvi Ainoa's AW collection. A beautiful store to explore, love everything about it, so inspiring to see how each outfit has been styled. Each product page could be an editorial of a chic children's magazine! Thank you!
We had a blackout last night, among the rest 5 million people who lost their electricity, totally caught off guard. It was unusually hot for San Diego. We were hiding in our air conditioned house until, puuh, lights off. No electricity, no internet, not even phone coverage and daddy was away for business...Totally unprepared but also realized how spoiled we are to the modern life.
The kids were excited, they smell something unusual in the air and that must be fun. We all came out of the house in the evening. Landon was running after the bigger kids in the neighborhood, Nea was excited to see so many people, first time I met and talked to so many of my neighbors. I guess there is always something positive, even during the darkest night.
Sorry bored you with all posts about Landon's first school week. It is such a big event in our family and I can't stop talking and thinking about it.
Today he brought home a little folder with his name on and inside there is this artwork. Until you have children, it is hard to understand how parents felt about their children's drawing, in their eyes, they are all brag-able art :)
