I won’t be around today. This weekend is the Texas Sales Tax Holiday, so the girls and I will be making our annual pilgrimage to
sacrifice my checkbook at the feet of the retail gods buy school clothes, shoes, backpacks, lunch boxes, and whatever else they can sneak into the shopping cart when I’m not looking.
We’ll also have our traditional dressing room meltdown, wherein one of them says, “Pleeeeeease, Mooooooom, Pleeeeeeease, I Loooooooove Iiiiiiiit.” And I say, “No, it doesn’t fit/shows your belly/looks weird…” or any combination thereof, thereby effectively turning myself into Big Mean Ogre Mom and continuing my transformation into my own mother.
Pray for me. Wish us luck!
