It's time for back-to-school shopping, one of my favorite times of the year! This year, like the past few years, we did all of our back-to-school clothes shopping at the Outlets at Traverse Mountain. The thing I love about the Outlets at Traverse Mountain is that there are so many stores all in one place with so many brands I love. I don't know about your kids but my kids are quite picky about what they wear. It may be because from the time they could respond to us, we have allowed them to choose what to wear. I remember as still babies, I would hold two shirts up in front of my kids and before they could talk, they would point to a shirt and I would put it on them. My daughter cared a lot more than my son but my son, a few years later, has gotten to the point as well, that if he doesn't choose the clothes from the store, more than likely he will never wear the clothes unless he picks them out to begin with. So it's just a rule that if I'm going shopping for clothes for the kids, they always come with me so they will wear the clothes that I buy. Every now and then it's a little overwhelming to me but most of the time, it is a great afternoon out shopping with the kids.
