This is the story of the vest. Carver is very proud of his new vest. I will tell you all about how it came to be.
I got Craig a vest for his birthday. I got him a sherpa lined Carhart vest. He wears it every single day and loves it. All of his characters on his video game, farming simulator, all have vests and cowboy hats.
Naturally, Carver has been BEGGING for a vest just like his dad’s. While Carver is usually decked out in Carhartt, they do not make youth sized vests.
If you’ve read my moms blog, you’ll know that we recently traveled to Minnesota for my great Aunt Agnes’s funeral. While we were in town, we had about 20 minutes to kill and happened to drive past a thrift store. I was with my mom and sister so Lord knows we had to stop.
Carver and I made a game of it until we actually started finding some pretty cool stuff. In fact, we ended up with an ENTIRE bag of like new clothes for Carver. Not only were they only $1.25 / piece, it was even 50% off of that!! Lo and behold, we found this vest. Carver’s eyes LIT UP! He was so excited, he put it on and begged to wear it the rest of the day. It actually matched his outfit quite well.
His whole day was made, he was dancing around, zipping and un-zipping the pockets, asking me to take his picture in the vest, calling and telling Craig about his vest, it was in fact, he told us, his FAVORITE apart of the day.
We were sitting at the meal and I could tell Carver was BURSTING to say something, he leaned and whispered, “Mom, when can I tell them about my vest?” I burst out laughing and made room in the conversation to make sure Carver had the chance to share about his most prized possession, his new vest.
I’m writing this on a Wednesday night, Carver has worn the vest every day since he got it on Saturday. I even messaged to warn his preschool teacher, letting her know if it became too much of a distraction, we could save the vest for home. She said she hadn’t even been in the classroom on Monday and had still heard all about Carver’s new vest! Ha!
Anyway, who would have thought this vest would have brought so much joy to Carver’s life! Now I’ve got to pry it off of him long enough to send it through the washing machine.
