Underrepresented

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I post a picture and just a few words.

When I was making a calendar for Mr. FG’s grandma (I do this every year at Christmas time), I realized that I had an awful lot of pictures of the girls, but not that many of Joshua.

This is mostly due to the fact that he’s not exactly attached at the hip to me these days, and is thus out of the range of my camera a lot of the time.   😉

So, I took a few of him expressly for calendar purposes.

This picture is from a few days ago, but he now has jeans without holes in the knees, thanks to a Black Friday sale at American Eagle, where I found the super-difficult-to-locate waist/length combo my tall, lanky boy needs.   Yay for online sizes!

And I remembered to go through TopCashBack when I shopped, so I’m getting a little bit of moola back on my purchase.

Oh, speaking of Joshua, check out this cool photo he posted this week.   Love the tiny little feather details!

Really? I'm gonna have kids with holey jeans even as they enter their teen years? As a mom of 3 boys, this is not good news (lol). I was hoping the jeans ripping would cease - or at least slow down - as they aged. (My boys are 11, 8, & 2.)

Lovely picture, by the way. :)

Yes, I'm sorry to say that the ripping is still going on.

And Joshua is 15, so....

Love the new look! As you know I'm thinking about "moving house and maybe redecorating!" Don't know whether to treat myself Christmas and go for it!

Weren't you planning to try a different cash back site? I've never used one. I do have MyPoints and try to use that for online purchases. Have you tried that one? If so, preference?

Yep-I'm keeping an eye on BeFrugal, but their rate for American Eagle was lower than TopCashBack. So of course I went with the one that gave me the highest rate. ;)

oh my, when did he grow up?

Gosh, in the last year, mostly. He's passed me by, height-wise, and is gaining on Mr. FG steadily.

Ripped jeans are still a thing!

That photo of the moth (I'm guessing) is really cool, I've never seen the "feathers" so clearly before.

They are at our house, at least! And somehow, Joshua sprouts holes in his jeans way quicker than the girls do. It's like testosterone eats away at fabric or something. ;)
