the girl just got up (it is 10:32am). she plopped down at the kitchen table in front of me and here is our conversation:
girl: i just had the best dream and i didn't want to wake up.
me (thinking it was going to be about twilight or something): what was it about?
girl: it was the first day of 7th grade and our homeroom teacher gave the whole class lg rumors (i assume this is a cool phone). then she told us we could text anyone in the room for 30 minutes. it was so cool!
the alternate title to this post would be shoring up the cave in.
the hubs is caving in. i've felt it, sensed it, but he threw it right out there in the open last night when he got home from work. we're sitting on the couch and he says, i just want you to THINK about getting them new phones.
i immediately say no.
he says--don't say no yet. just THINK about it. which means he's already thinking about it which means sometime soon they will get new phones.
he says---they're good kids.
me--they're spoiled kids.
he--nawwww.....who am i kidding, yes they are spoiled, but, they're good kids.
me--getting them these phones now not only doesn't make any fiscal sense it also teaches her that if she whines and pouts and fusses long enough she'll get whatever she wants and that's just not realistic. that's not teaching her about life.
he---but she's a kid she doesn't need to learn about disappointment yet.
he's caving. i think i need a safety helmut.
