Daniel: So Mom, tomorrow is my shopping day at the Secret Santa Shop at school.
Mom: I know. Are you ready?
Daniel: Yeah. Hey Mom, is it okay if I buy something for me?
Mom: Well, you know I have been known to buy a little something for myself when I go Christmas shopping.
Daniel: You do?!
Mom: Yes. It drives your Dad and Grandmom crazy but what can I say, I need things and they are on sale and I’m there. So I guess it is okay…as long as you have shopped for everyone on your Christmas list first.
This afternoon after school:
Daniel: I got all my shopping done and I even have change! And you know what?!
Mom & Jodie: What?
Daniel: I bought a present for me.
Daniel: Can I open it now?
This kid of mine…thanks to him I love laughing until I cry. Those are the best kind of tears…
so much better than the ones shed last week.
