The movie ended..and it was bedtime. It had been a long wonderful weekend. But a weekend filled with lots of fun..and not enough sleep. At the end of the movie..the little girl got her wish from Santa. A fluffy white puppy. Happy ending right? Ahhhh not so much around these parts!!
"Mom can we buy a new house so I can get a puppy?" Sorry Kaden you need a lot of money to buy a new house and right now Mommy doesn't have a lot of money. "Well I have a lot of money ($38 to be exact). We can use my money!" Honey we need WAY more money than even YOU have. "Well I want a puppy." I know you do...and someday we will get a new house and you can most certainly have a puppy. "But I want one nowwww. I just want a little puppy that will follow me around and lick my face. I just KNOW I will NEVER have a puppy." This is followed by sighs...then tears...then sobs...Ohhh the drama...Ohhh the heartache...Ohhhh the sad sad little boy. All because of a fluffy white puppy!
They are cute...and I would LOVE for him to have a puppy. Despite my bad dog luck..another story for another time...I then went into guilt mode. Feeling sorry for myself because we live in this apartment(which mind you I do kinda love) and we can't have a dog. Sorry for myself because this is NOT the life I thought we would have at this point in our lives (despite the fact that I LOVE my life)..I had to go smack myself up in the mirror and remind myself of those things. AND also remind myself that children do NOT always get everything they want. EVEN if it is a cute..soft....fluffy....white puppy!!!
