We live in Texas, and summer here is B-R-U-T-A-L hot. I’m not proud of it, but lately we’ve been spending alot of time indoors doing alot of TV watching, craft projects and playing crash track cars. It suits me just fine, because I’m not real good with handling triple digit heat conditions.
It’s no wonder JP prefers running around in the buff!
Now, don’t get me wrong – I’m a pretty liberal person in my beliefs… But there’s only so much of running around naked I can take!
Allow me to illustrate a scenario:
JP is sitting in the middle of the living room with atleast 20 of his favorite model cars, he’s talking gleefully and deeply encgrossed in his make-believe play. He is also buck-naked – not uncommon for him since that’s how I potty trained him this summer. We’re not nudists or anything, but frankly – I just gave up on trying to keep him dressed! His newest skill is undressing himself, so guess what? He’ll just randomly undress himself at will – thank god he only does this at home!
Then finally, almost half-expecting it to happen – I hear a pained cry ring out.
“Mommy!! – I made a boo boo!” He cries out
The sound in his voice tells me he’s fine. I glance over at him, expecting to see a pinched finger or something of that nature and find him in the same spot on the living room floor.
“Where’s the boo boo?” I ask, approaching his side, preparing to kiss the affected area. Since that is our standard boo boo procedure.
“I hurt my pecker” He squeaks. “Kiss it” he continues as tears well up in his eyes
I cover my mouth and stare at him in utter disbelief, with my mouth agape I could barely hold back from laughing hysterically at what my three year old just said to me. Nothing prepares you for this sort of stuff as a parent!
Needless to say, I’ve been a little more stringent on enforcing the clothing code for nothing else but to protect himself against little mishaps like that. So when I did some shopping at Cookie’s Kids recently, I couldn’t help but notice their cute little underoos from Fruit of the Loom. Spiderman and Superman to be exact – and some crazy awesome spiderman sneakers to go with it.
JP LOVES it when a box arrives at the house. I had my camera ready and waiting for when the UPS guy dropped off our package. I told JP there was a nice surprise in there, just for him.
Open it Mommy!! Finally, I peeled the box open and revealed what was inside. Underwear and toys! #CookiesKids
He loved playing with his new car launcher set – He couldn’t wait for me to open it!
It worked great on the hardwood entrance way!
And these underoos are even great for playing in the back yard! It’s so hot here, that it works out well.
In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.
As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.
By the late 1990’s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding CookiesKids.com in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.
