A couple of weeks ago, I was getting my son's clothes together to get him dressed for shul. In our neighborhood, kids typically don't dress too formally - a nice sweater and khakis are perfectly acceptible - which is a stark contrast from my parents' and in-laws' neighborhoods, where parents tend to dress their kids a little more formally.

As I was looking for a pair of pants in his closet, I noticed a sports jacket we had bought him a while ago that he had never worn. I tried it on him and it fit perfectly. Here he was, my little man in the suit jacket (tie too!), all of a sudden he seemed so grown up. Which is the reaction all of our friends had. Since then, he wants to wear his jacket and tie every week (just like daddy).

The dry-cleaner is very happy.
