First thing on today's to-do list was: "PICK UP ERNEST'S TUX" for his 8th grade graduation on Wednesday.
At first he didn't want to rent one. I just want to wear black. But you'll need a jacket. Everyone else will have one. Can we just get a suit? If you're willing to go shopping. (And that would be a resounding NO!) So we rented the tux instead. He was relieved to find that several of his classmates had already rented them.
I picked it up today. Ernest will be disappointed that the tie is not a REAL tie. It's tied already and hooks together in the back. Because he's been a tie-tier for a long time. 8 years old and he was already tying them on his own.
He may end up substituting one of his own ties for the rental tie.
