Pamela Tracy here, and it's Christmas time at my house. Yup, oh yup.
So, my eight year old was invited to a birthday party last Friday night and then to stay the night. Hubby and I decided romantic dinner out and then Christmas shopping.
Eight year old got grounded. Missed birthday party.
Hubby and I decided that while eight year old was in school yesterday, we'd do lunch at nice but not romantic restaurant and then Christmas shop.
Sunday night my son complained of an ear ache. Soon, he announced that his ear was broken. Should I mention that he'd played all day with no complaint. At about 11 p.m. he woke us up weeping.
At midnight Hubby and I are in the emergency room hearing the words "rip-roaring ear infection and ruptured eardrum."
We held our son, went to a 24 hour pharmacy, and then returned home. We looked at the calendar. There were no more shopping opportunities between his work and mine. None, nada, nein.
So, babysitter Grandpa to the rescue!
Hubby and I got all our shopping done in two hours and ate at the food court. Btw, although our son wants the brown dog that poohs playdough, we did not buy it. LOL
<sigh> I love being a wife and mom.
I love Christmas.
So, are you done with your shopping?
