While I quickly document the stuff-up that was Friday…
Wait a minute, you’re still here. Never mind I’ll leave the confession till the end of the post. Perhaps you’ll be bored by then and won’t bother reading it, she says assuming that anyone bothers reading any of the food diaries…interesting question – does anyone read them?
So, today, better than average, expensive though. Why am I such a sucker for indulging my kids when they so don’t need any more STUFF!? Caitlin got her ears pierced (that was planned – early birthday present type thing). Then we had gelato…it was necessary, really. Next was buying a birthday present for one of Caitlin’s friends. Then I was planning on grabbing some groceries and heading home for lunch. So someone explain to me how I ended up not only buying the birthday present in question but also: putting on lay-by a huge lego set for Santa to bring David (had to be sneaky about that one so Tom wouldn’t notice); buying a Smiggle eraser (for Tom) and gel pen set (for Caitlin) that neither of them needed; agreeing to a free model painting lesson at Games Workshop (Tom painted Gandalf and Dave painted Gimli) and getting slowly worn down by the fact that both the boys had so much fun doing the painting and then joining in one of the games that was running at the time, such that by the end of the exercise I was walking out of the place having spent a ludicrous sum of money on small plastic figurines and painting supplies; and then finally canceling a lay-by at another shop and letting Caitlin spend the non-refundable deposit on yet more stuff we don’t need.
On the up-side Caitlin declared to me today that I am the best mum ever. And I don’t think it was ONLY her mercenary streak speaking….
The boys just squabbled over the miniatures.
