Next we have a little discussion of fashion. There are few things nearer and dearer to the heart of your average nine year old boy, hmm?
Thing Two, in the manner of second born children the world over, decided he needed a unique and creative manner of self expression. Since his chosen method does not require unattractive facial piercings, illegal activity, engaging in excessive risk-taking or embarrassing his mother, I found myself supportive. He heard about the dismembering and rearranging of clothes and it appealed to him. He calls it Franken-fashion.
He has even engaged in sewing to make this happen and is quite proud of his creations.
Go, Thing Two!
