This is a picture of The Rockstars tripping off to camp one morning.


The Miss is in an asymmetrical hem-water colour print Betsey Johnson dress embellished with studs scored online heavily marked down, for HKD 100-something (seriously). To commemorate the occasion, she eschewed her usual purple Nikes in favour of Rockstar's shearling Uggs which she has laid claim to, having scored the boots after rummaging through our shoe cabinet one morning.

We don't ever remember a younger Rockstar wearing those, we bought them from some giant warehouse as a standby one snowy vacation, in case his sneakers weren't warm enough when he wasn't in ski boots (he spent most of his ski camp days in ski boots). The Miss considers them a favour well earned, after excavating the deepest bowels of our cabinet, pulling those on and declaring them a perfect fit. Free Favourite Boots. She loves taking over Rockstar's hand-me-downs and making them her own.

Rockstar is eagerly going for a coding course originally for 11-15 year olds (but in an area he's familiar with hence the coding school said it would be ok; otherwise we would definitely not try this) - in the clothes he slept in, the previous night. He observed it was "great" his pyjamas were wearable to camp the next day. (Obviously this was a matter of opinion but Pick Your Battles, Aileen.)

Which just about sums up what these two are like.

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    Rockstar made the decision on his own that his pyjamas were wearable to camp?

    Miss Rockstar’s dress is so pretty, the colours are just too dreamy for words.

      He’s quite fussy about comfort and likes to wear soft, old comfortable stuff which is often PJs 🙂

      The dress was an unexpected bonus because it didnt look that nice online but the Miss was taken by the studs and it was quite cheap (probably others also didn’t get it for the same reason resulting in it being heavily marked down without anyone else buying it either..)
