Ok, so literally LOL here! I totally got caught "vrooming" my cart around the corner by a worker at the local discount department store. Yah, so I am definitely one of those moms that makes all the sound effects, BUT...this time I was caught doing it while the kids were at school. I guess it's just a habit that I find entertaining myself HAHA HA HA HA HA!!!! oops ;) :)

All rave reviews for our boys suits!

Dapper Dudes!
Boys Suit - Black 5 Pieces With Vest Your boy will look dapper at his special occasion in one of our boys suits we have at The Spunky Monkey. Starting at $54.95, these boys 3 piece suits are very reasonably priced.
Lito Childrenswear is known for quality craftsmanship and attention to detail.  They have out done themselves with these little pint size suits!
Everyone that orders one is pleased as punch, however we take no responsibility for your little one not spilling punch on himself ;).
Consult the size chart  to make sure you're ordering correctly.  These suits run true to size, not big or small.  If you can get your little guy to stand still, measurements will help.  Most of our suits come with a shirt and tie, however, if you'd like to get an extra, we've got those too!

Pre-K Graduation

Ok, personal update:

My oldest finished Pre-K and "graduates" this coming Fri.  What a hoot that will be HA HA HA!!!  She had her end of the year dance recital yesterday.  I can't believe it's already her 3rd year in dance?!  CRAZY!  All I kept thinking through the whole recital was that next year when she is in kindergarten at the "big kid" school, she'll have to go to a real dance studio and no more easy preschool dance where they're mobile and hold the class at the school.  So that tuition will go up ARGH! 

And simultaneously, my youngest starts preschool next year so I have to decide if I want her to skip the easy preschool dance at the school and have her in a class at the same company as "the big girl" so at the end of the year we can avoid two different recitals and we can just do one for both of them. can ages 2-5 be so "complicated"...I can't even imagine the decisions we're going to have to go through when are kids are in Jr. High and High School.  OK, I can't even think about that now or that just freaks me out LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  One day at a time...

All of this and she CHOSE, yes, her people contacted my people (a.k.a. me LOL!)!  (Can you feel the excitement?)
