I was having trouble finishing up the Xmas shopping for The Boy, as he is kinda like buying a gift for Our Lord and Savior..I just don't know what to get..nothing seems good enough.
I mean he is at the age where he is very particular.
I made a purchase I swore to God I would never buy my baby boy. This is an item that can cause great distress for me as I know what boys keep in these things.
Yes, I bought my son a wallet.
I know he is only going on 11, I know he still thinks girls are growdy, and I know his hair cut is so unflattering that he would never need to use one...
But I still no what boys keep in there besides there allowance and lunch tickets..
I have seen many a wallets loaded with a plenty of these items starting at, um, an early age...
May God place His hand on my boy and keep Trojans outta of his wallet..
Along with Mary Jane and fake ID's.
The children need to take gifts into to school with a five dollar limit. Just one gift. The Boy brings a boy toy, Blondie brings a girl toy..Simple is as simple does.
I head to Walmart WAY over dressed as I am in my church clothes, and I look real fancy in church clothes, and I feel outta place...I was half tempted to head back home nad put on my flannel pj bottoms and a mint julep face mask.
Anyhoo....I easily find toys for both kids...under 5 bucks..which is hard as hell.
I come home with them and my son says..
" now I don't mean to be rude, but I am going to get made fun of if i take this to school"
I bet your thinking I bought him lip gloss or a My Little Pony.
Nah, I got a deck of cards, two decks in one...with star wars on it...One deck is hero's, one deck is villans.
Now mind you, this child and ALL his cohorts play with Star Wars dolls, i mean action figures, on a daily basis.
So I make mention to him that he plays with Star Wars crap all the time.
This is when he informs me this is a secert life he lives and that he keeps his love for Star Wars a secert from his classmates.
I had no idea he was covert spy star wars action figure playing dude.
He is undercover.
I think he is telling me this because he wants to keep the cards....
But damn, I hate to blow his cover..
Whats a mother to do?
Well, tonight I am wrapping them playing cards and slapping a bow on it.
I wanna thank Emmasometimes for my template...she has now single handedly gave me a template for all seasons...Next up will be my spring/summer one from last year. Gawd I miss that one..
