Semi-annual event

Every spring and every fall I make the kids pull out every piece of clothing they own and try it on. 

It does not make them happy.

The boys have 4 times as many clothes as G does.  I seem to find a ton of t-shirts on clearance for the boys and none for G.  

They do not like to try on clothes, so it takes forever.  I even try to bribe them, usually with new clothes, but this year the boys aren't getting a piece of clothing.  They each have about 17 t-shirts and that was after I filled 3 bags for goodwill and 1 for the garbage.  

G, on the other hand, was left with 3 t-shirts and 1 pair of shorts.  We are going to have fun at Target and Kohl's.

And if we had ended up with no clothes for the boys.  Z would have been just as happy wearing a cardboard box and a paper bag.

I've avoided that "trying on scene" by simply holding things up against them. I know, weak and pathetic. But THREE boys! c'mon!!!
