To Send Or Not To Send

You know those times. When you're all into making a meal and you realize you don't have all the ingredients. Because your precious children finished off the last of the butter with their morning toast, or maybe your husband ate the last of the all-purpose Maria cookies which dubs as an excellent vanilla wafer or graham cracker in certain recipes. Then the decision has to be made....Do I send HIM to the grocery store? Or do I stop everything and go myself?

Pros and Cons:

Pros: He usually comes home with a special surprise just for me. i.e. new cookbook (what's he trying to say?) brand new paring knife (sweet!) silicone cooking utensils (not to bad..)and the best...chocolate (yeah baby!)

Cons: He shows up with some after Christmas sale racing speed boats. His excuse..."Justice hasn't gotten anything yet with his Christmas money!"

Poor Justice. He can't even play with HIS racing speed boats because he sticks the antenna of his remote control into the water. This makes the boats go faster, and stands his hair on end. ( his hair is always sticking up. But how safe can that be?!) When we hide the boats and remote controls I later find cars, jungle animals, and his sisters socks in the water where he tried to make his own boats. Usually a soggy cookie and a wet cat can be found nearby as well.

I think I'll hold onto Justice's Christmas money next year.

Looks like fun. My son got a remote control's tiny for in-house use and FringeMan played with it all day on Christmas. Some toys are just plain fun for the whole family.

At least I got only what I needed this time (yes, I sent Dennis to the store for a single item for supper and that's all he got!)

As for the boats, it looks as if it's as much Bro. Michael's toy as it is Big J's!

Never send the Man. He always buys too much (but at least it was on clearance).
