Jacket for Mica

On Thursday Mica pleaded before school that he NEEDED a new jacket. 

On Saturday I said we had to go out to get a jacket. All the sudden he didn’t think he NEEDED one. He was adamant that he wasn’t going out. It turned into me saying, “You told me a few days ago that you NEEDED a jacket. We’re going to get a jacket.”

So off we went, with a huffing and puffing teen in the car. 

The difficult thing with Mica is that he has a long torso. It’s impossible to find a jacket to be long enough for him. 

We went to Old Navy, H&M, and about 5 more stores. Finally he landed in a jacket on a jacket that still isn’t quite long enough. 

Then I got to listen to Travis about how Mica should just use one of his jackets. He said, “Did you have him try on an XL, so it would go down longer?” I said, “It is an XL. An XXL wouldn’t be any longer. Just wider.”

Sometimes it would be nice to have just one other girl in the house. I’m not a shopper, but I don’t like to argue all the time about getting things.

I still think it's a nice jacket. Allison told me that the kids here don't wear jackets or coats and if you wear one to school it's embarrassing. Same with backpacks. Why would a practical thing be embarassing!?

It looks good on him. I have a long torso too, and swimsuits are what is hard for me. I don't want to wear two-pieces anymore and it's really hard to find a one-piece with a long enough torso for me.
