|My darling daughter, enjoying |
the sweet life
on the merry-go-round
I spent one whole year not shopping. That year I mastered the art of patience and selflessness. At the time I only had one bambino and she didn't seem very threatening. She demanded a lot of my time, but didn't appear to need much else. I thought after my year of penance I would be free to shop, browse, indulge, and would ease back gracefully into the life I once knew and loved. Sadly I was so wrong! It turns out that as children get older their (financial) needs become greater. Now I am paying for preschool and there is many a mouth to feed. What a hard pill to swallow for this material girl!
