Talking FabKids and Memorial Day

Disclosure: I received a sample product from FabKids to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Today is Memorial Day. As always, we'll go to the parade, and when the soldiers come out, I'll start to cry. It doesn't matter that my oldest is now out of the military, I'll still cry. Gets me every time.

After the parade, we'll do the partying. There'll be games, face painting, balloons, bounce houses, and more. And my 7-year-old will love it.

How did I get my son ready for the holiday?

FabKids Denim Rockstar Outfit
First and foremost,

FabKids offers a variety of stylish, comfortable
clothing, loose enough for my son to move around in!
I got him a haircut.

He looks like a whole different kid, doesn't he? Except for the cool Denim Rockstar FabKids outfit he's sporting. That's the same in both pictures. ;)

Super Soft Short Sleeve Graphic Tee

Then I took him to get some eats in his belly. Along the way we stopped for your everyday super-critical moth rescue.

Operation Save the Moth
You can easily see the double stitched seams on the shirt. Nice!
A little moth was injured and my son with his big, very soft heart took about 20 minutes getting it safely to grass so it wouldn't burn up on the pavement. I stood on road (driveway) duty so my son wouldn't be in danger. ;)

Operation save the moth was a success.
The moth was successfully placed in the grass
just beyond the mulch you see here.
The mission was a very big deal, with the moth successfully (finally) getting his resting place in the grass. I didn't tell my son the moth had little chance to live regardless (it's wing was hurt), I just let him do his thing. His intentions were good and he was determined, so I just let it be.

We went inside, got him fed and then we were ready to get some Memorial Day activities up and running. That's what we're about to do now. I know he'll be comfy in his new FabKids outfit, and he'll be styling too.

FabKids Classic Straight Denim Pants

FabKids is a wonderful monthly subscription service where you receive an outfit for your child each and every month, and its delivered right to your front door. How does it work? There is a due date each month to buy an outfit. If you decide NOT to get an outfit for the month, you opt out by that date and you're fine. If you DO want the outfit, do nothing, your account will be charged one outfit credit, and then at your convenience, you can pick and choose which outfit you would like to have delivered. It's as simple as that...

If you find other items you'd like, you're welcome to buy any item(s) you like, at any time, and with the good sales and discounts always going on in one form or another, it's highly likely you'll want to do some FabKids shopping pretty regularly. Right now they're having a Buy One Outfit Get One Free sale that's hard to beat.

We've had our FabKids subscription for quite awhile now and we always love it, every single time. From experience, I can tell you that the clothes last a long time, they're very durable, and they wash up nicely. I highly recommend this subscription service to anyone with kids.

You can learn more about FabKids by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Carmen Perez said...

Your son is so handsome, he looks adorable. Have fun celebrating this very special holiday.

Lori Gunn said...

The FabKids box subscription sounds so great - I really like his Rock Star shirt and the comfy looking jeans. I'm glad your boy saved the moth. Kindness is a virtue.

connie said...

What a handsome boy you have. The box sounds like a cool idea. Have fun this holiday.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Enjoy the parade and hope you don't cry too much.

Aimee Fauci said...

Fabkids is awesome! I do not have boys but know how hard it is to find cool boy clothes. They are awesome with doing this.

Christy Maurer said...

His haircut and outfit are so cute! That is totally something Kyle would have done with the moth. He saw a squirrel get hit before and it was still (somewhat) alive. He put it in a box til it died and buried it.

Jeanine said...

He is so stylish! I love all the clothes I've seen from FabKids. I haven't had a chance to go check them out fully yet but I intend to!

Kathe W. said...

a child with a big soft heart is a big AWWWW for me!

stevebethere said...

Aww! heheh! Have a good Memorial Day :-)

Maria said...

He looks comfortable and that is number one. I love that these look durable which is great on the pocketbook.

Lois Alter Mark said...

You should be very proud of your son :) And he looks adorable in that outfit.

Pat Hatt said...

Sure the moth appreciated the effort at least. Could tell the haircut indeed, hopefully you enjoy the day

Amanda T said...

Really cute clothes, and what a sweet thing he did for the moth. I always did things like that too.

Pam said...

Those jeans are really cute! I love the shirt too.

Theresa Pickett said...

Aw, the photos are adorable! The jeans are super cute. I'd buy them for my kids if I had boys.

Dinner then Dessert said...

We bought some things from Fabkids, but my kids are like beanpoles so guessing sizing online is hard. That outfit is adorable!

alissa apel said...

I love the moth story. How sweet of him!

Happy Memorial Day! We used to go to a park here called Memorial Park, but now we celebrate all the May birthdays.

Paula Schuck said...

What a handsome young man! I love FabKids. They have so much great stuff for kids!

Binky said...

It's nice your son is kindhearted like that. We need a lot more people to be that way.

The Mommy-Files said...

His outfits look so cute on him! I hadn't heard of this company before. Thanks for sharing.

Theresa Mahoney said...

I knew something was different, I just couldn't put my finger on it. It's the hair cut! My gosh, he looks so grown up with his new do! But not too grown up where he isn't still a cutie pie rockin' his Fab Kids outfit!

Tammy Woodall said...

Kids would love the rightly named Fabkids clothes. I really like the Fabkids Denim Rockstar outfit.

Jen said...

Love the photos!!

Meagan Ivie said...

I've heard some great things about Fabkids. What cute little guy you have!

Such a cute outfit, and Fab Kids always has the cutest clothing, i love the printed tees.

Such a cute outfit and an adorable little guy. That t-shirt is really adorable and I bet he just loves it. He is a great model too.

Kristi Maloney said...

Your son looks so stylish in his Memorial day outfit. Love the Fabkids clothes. Well, good thing that moth wasn't in our neck of the woods - He might have been zapped by our new bug zapper. (Don't tell your son!) lol Hope you guys had a great Memorial Day!

Elizabeth O. said...

A handsome boy with a soft, big heart. Love the shirt!

Beth@FrugalFroggie said...

Such cute clothes. Love the new haircut!!

Michelle Varga said...

Those look really great on your son! I find it's hard to find enough boy clothes in stores so this would be a good option for my son.

Ann B said...

Kids are so hard on their clothes. Fab Kids is an amazing quality kids line. The clothes always outlast the kids.

Russ R. said...

Aww, such an adorable young man. He looked like he enjoyed himself there.
My Mom used to do the hair cut thing with my brother and I when we were growing up. Each time there was an occasion, we always visit her hair stylist and we either get a trim or a major haircut.

Lynndee said...

I like those denim pants. They're really nice. I bet my son would like them too. Your son is such a cutie! :)

Dawn McAlexander said...

Your son looks like he is ready to take on the world! Fabkids sounds like an awesome opportunity to keep the kids in clothes! I will have to check it out!

Haircuts can make a drastic change for little boys :) He looks great!

I really love the style and affordability of the FabKids line. I wish they had this for my older tweens, but sadly, they do not.

Donna L. Ward said...

Your little guy looks very handsome with his new haircut and great, stylin', FabKids wear - I just know you had a great time at the parade!

Jenn Perry said...

I so love the idea behind this service. My kid goes through so many clothes because he play so rough. Definitely going to look in to this.

Lisa Rios said...

Your son looks so cute and stylish. These outfits perfectly suits him. Fabkids clothes always rocks and they have so much of great stuff for kids. Glad to know that you had a great Memorial Day weekend.

Jacqueline said...

I was diggin' the shaggy look, but a new summer 'do is always a great way to kick off the best season of the year! I didn't go to any parades this year, but we did spend the day at the beach as a family :)

Krystal Butherus said...

I really need to sign my toddler up for this. I love their collection of clothing!

Krysten Quiles said...

How grown up does he look! I'll have to recommend this to some of my friends with kids!

Anne | HealthySouthernMama.com said...

What a cutie! I love that shirt.

aww... how cute of him trying to save the moth. As for his outfit, he looks fabulous in it. I have heard a lot about Fabkids but never bought anything from them. I will have to check it out for my little one.

alissa apel said...

I need to get my boy's hair cut to. But Mica wants his hair a little longer. I just don't know what to do with it.

Ay Lin said...

what a cutie! like his outfit, btw.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

We used to call getting a haircut getting your ears lowered. That was a stupid saying.

~ Noelle said...

He looks so grown up with that hair cut. I am in love with all the fab kids clothing you review. Awesome.

Grandma Juice said...

AAwww... he is such a great kid! He looks great too!
My oldest just got out of the military after 8 years as well. I am such a crier like you! The videos of 'coming home surprises' you see online... big ole ugly girl cry! :)

Melissa Pezza said...

The Rock Star shirt is my favorite, too. I need to get that for my son.

Jinxy and Me said...

He looks like he loves his new shirt. It's super cute too!

Patty Woodland said...

He is adorable - although I am sure he doesn't want to hear himself called that. I have heard nothing but good things about FabKids

Jeannette said...

That haircut makes him look so much more grown up, My son is about the same age. he would LOVE that shirt! Looks like you had a great memorial Day!

RENNIE D said...
