Our house has been in the midst if potty training this year. Our youngest, three, has gone back and forth with the desire to use the toilet for several months. In the last few weeks we have found a fantastic rhythm where he finally seems to be fully ready to give up his pull-ups/diapers full time. It has taken us a lot to get to this point, we had quite the regression near Spring Break. But now that he is ready to commit full time we have run around purchasing new underwear. One thing he loves is to wear boxers like Daddy. Thank goodness The Boy’s Store carries a fantastic selecting of boys underwear.

Summer in the desert brings the heat. It can start early, the moment we wake up it is already scorching outside. So we learn to adapt. We wear clothes that breathe, we spend the hottest part of the day indoors, and we stick to our air conditioners ands swamp coolers like our lives depend on it.
Our kids love to wear tank tops in the dry desert heat. We make sure to be extra generous with sunblock in the summer months, but otherwise we embrace the sleeveless life, because life gets hot. Thank goodness The Boy’s Store understands that need for tanks.
Boys’ Adios Amigo Tank Top by Tiny Whales : This fun yellow and black tank features a funny and spiky cactus about town. it reads “adios amigos” and if it means adios to the awful heat I am all about it. Available in sizes 5-10.
Boys’ Skull Tank Top by City Threads: This tank has us dead, dead impressed. it features a full screen print of a skull and bones on the front with a smaller trim screen print of the skull and bones along the torso seams.
Power Suit, evening dress, and comfort clothes, are all ways of describing the type of clothing you might wear. We all know that clothing options can change the way we feel about ourselves on any given day. Wear a powerful color can make you feel stronger. Wearing a specially tailored and cut suit can make you feel powerful and put together. Wearing sweatpants and a favorite old shirt can make you feel safe and protected. Clothes are important to adults. But did you ever stop to think that clothes are just as important to kids?
Protection: Clothing that provides physical safeguards to the body, preventing harm from climate and environment.
Identification: Establishing who someone is or what they do.
Modesty: Covering the body according to the code of decency established by society.
Status: One’s position or rank in comparison to others.
All of these reasons make sense for adults, of course, u they also make perfect sense for kids. As adults we tend to belittle kids a lot. We reason away their feelings, their fears, and their achievements all because they seem trivial to us. It doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things yet, so why should it matter to us? But their world is very real to them. It is not imaginary, it begins and ends everyday just as ours does, and it has real repercussions for them. Why wouldn’t we want to help them navigate through it with more ease?
Clothing seems like such a small part of who we are, but in reality it is one of the most constant parts of us. Our style may change over the years but it is one of the easiest ways to present ourselves to the world. it also is a lot like a suit of armor for us in many ways. Not only can it express who we are, but it can also protect us in moments when we need help, strength, or comfort. many adults claim to have a power suit, power dress, power shirt, or power color that they turn to when they need to deliver that presentation at work with confidence. Many of us have an outfit that can always bring a smile to our face and make us happy and ready to look on the bright side. These are all incredible things for clothes to do for an adult, so why wouldn’t it do the same for our kids?
One of the reasons The Boy’s Store was created was to harness the power of style in young boys. Stores often focus on style for girls, bringing them better clothing options, colors, cuts, and fabric. Boys are often forgotten in this department. Cargo pants, tshirts, sneakers, and a hoodie have become a tried and true uniform of sorts for boys all over the world. But is it enough? Bringing color in to the worlds of boys, texture, and diverse style options can give boys more confidence in their abilities. It can give them more of a chance to express who they are, what they are feeling, and what they are capable of. We strive to bring a multitude of style to boys and girls alike. After all, if we give them the tools our kids can change the world.
