Can you believe that summer is already here? Darius' last day of school was today. But it literally feels like three weeks ago since I kissed him good-bye on his first day of Kindergarten with two apples in his backpack for his new teachers. Now I'm arranging for time at Camp Grandparents while the integration at work becomes Priority Numero Uno for most of the summer.
Good thing I had the chance to grab some affordable, customized "camp" gear from likewear.com. The closest I can describe Like Wear is like a Tupperware-equivalent for fun fashions. Like Wear sells a ton of licensed or trademarked images. You can create custom orders by working with one of their sellers. Wouldn't that be adorable for a Scout troop, Little League Team, or your kids friends who are all going to the same camp?! Or you can order what's in stock direct from their website. Or save yourself some cash and host a trunk show (for hosting you get store credit to do your own shopping).
Loving the retro-ness of some of the images, I literally sat Darius in front of my laptop and let him pick out what he wanted. My budding environmentalist chose the Give Peas a Chance image for one shirt. But his inner sportsman also picked out a Wheaties shirt. Who knows, maybe one day his image will be on a box. Okay, probably only if we photoshop his image onto a box. But a mom can dream that her son will strike it rich and then buy her a McMansion, right? Boys love their mommas, after all.
Lucky you, Like Wear is giving $25 to a Who's the Boss? reader. All you have to do is comment on this post with your favorite camp story by Monday, June 14th. Let it be funny, touching, embarrassing, whatever. The first time you kissed a boy, got covered in mosquito bites that all got infected, went to "horseback riding" camp only to be treated like slave labor at the ranch. Okay, maybe those are my stories.
