This weekend we headed up North to my parents once again, for a family wedding. This is the first wedding Limefreckle Jr. attended. I was very nervous about it all summer, originally I wasn't even planning on bringing him, because I just couldn't picture him sitting still through the whole ceremony and dinner, speeches etc.
Turns out, like many things with Limefreckle Jr. lately, I had absolutely NOTHING to worry about!! The two biggest obstacles I had with him were:
1) what was he going to wear. This is a boy that will NOT wear zippered pants, only shorts and sweat pants, and ONLY t-shirts, a collared golf shirt is a challenge for him. He is SO sensitive to how clothes feel on him.
2) What will he eat? French fries are pretty much the ONLY thing he will ever order when we go out to dinner -- not usually on the menu at most wedding venues!
Well it turned out, French fries WERE on the menu, the bride arranged for him to have a double order (and they actually even came and gave him a refill). And as far as his outfit, the bride also made us so comfortable, she told us if he wanted to wear shorts and a t shirt, that was completely fine with her.
I posted about this worry earlier in the summer, and a commenter suggested I buy chinos at Lands End, they have them in his size, with an elastic waist kind of like sweats....he balked a bit, but he wore them. I ordered a collared golf shirt, but at the last minute my cousin found him a "tuxedo" t shirt and that just seemed to be the PERFECT thing for him and his personality!!
