I’m gonna pop some tags- The Thrift Shop down the road

I know I am not the only one who cant get that song out of their head! My kids love it and sing it in the car all the time now. I’m really hoping that the song inspires a whole new thrift shop trend! Wouldn’t it be great if all our kids wanted to buy from thrift shops instead of this parade of fashion and technology that happens at schools today? My 8 year old already complains to me that his friends have an iPhone 4 and that he doesn’t! What did you have when you was that age? I had playing cards in the spokes of my bicycle and I thought that was pretty awesome! Maybe this isn’t a quick tip as much as its reminding all of us mommies to remember that healthy well rounded kids hear the word “NO” every once in a while, if not on a daily basis!!! The next best thing may not be the best thing for them. And “refurbished” is not a bad word either! I don’t feel cheated knowing that everything I had wasn’t brand new, and I know people who had it worse. That is a very important lesson to teach kids, especially with the economy the way it is now. There is no entitlement, there is simply “make the best with what you have” .

Anyone have thoughts on this too?

Happy Thursday Everyone,

Jessi
