I just went to Target with my 10 year old. Everyone should experience the joy of shopping with her. So with her permission, I share our recent experience.
Every other year or so she gets Valentine’s and St. Patrick Day shirts. We went over to that section and I showed her this:
“But gold is a solid rock. I don’t want my heart to be a solid rock.”
Then we saw this:
“Donut pants? That’s something YOU would wear.”
And there you have it.
I have no idea why the second picture is sideways.
(And I probably would wear them if the situation was right.)
My kids want a dog. My daughter really wants a dog.
A grainy and therefore id-defying picture of my daughter with a borrowed dog.
I never had a dog growing up, so I’m not so sure about getting one. There seems to be a lot of crap involved. And I already deal with a lot of crap.
We also travel a lot and I’m not sure how far it is to get a dog that is kenneled at least one weekend a month.
Two of our friends got dogs for Christmas. My kids have been playing with these dogs and whimpering when they leave them.
It’s not like I haven’t tried substitutes. My daughter has four robotic dogs (all different sizes being able to do different things which means that if you put all four together, it is almost like a real dog) and a Webkins dog she can play with on the computer. Why is this not enough?
