I am in need of some Summer clothes.My plan this month was to go and treat myself, however my hopes have been dashed.Son#1 has no Summer clothes either... The pesky child will keep growing and, going through his drawers the other day, we noticed that he had nothing to wear... unless you can count a pair of old swimming trunks and a free t-shirt from last year's Summer Holiday company.
Being the kind/gullible mother I am I went out at the weekend and spent my money...yes, my clothes money....on him.He now has shorts and t-shirts and is generally going to look a million dollars each time he steps out of the house.And me?? I still have nothing to wear, plus I have no money because its all gone on him.
When you sign up for the whole children malarkey no bugger ever mentions that you have to be so bloody selfless. Yes, I thought I would have a few sleepless nights. Yes, I knew that I would possibly have to throw myself before a speeding bullet to save my child/children... But nobody ever mentioned that I would have to give up really important stuff.... like new clothes and make up.
And I love clothes....I would love to have some nice Summer clothes where my belly doesn't hang over my skirt, competing with my boobs hanging over my top.I don't need designer....just a couple of skirts and a couple of blouses...
Still...my children look nice. Perhaps I'll just have to stand behind them...
