My oldest daughter has been a tomboy for many, many years.
This meant when it came to school clothes, she was happy with graphic t-shirts and jeans… up until this year.
She’s 16 now, and becoming a beautiful young woman, who’s decided that she likes to dress nice for school. This means, shopping at some of the more expensive stores, like Ambercrabie and Fitch, yes I know it’s really Abercrombie and Fitch, but I enjoy how it pisses them off when I mispronounce things (it’s the little things).
This is the first year that hubby has had to pay for new bras for all of us (I like to get in on the gravy train once in awhile), and they didn’t want undies from Fruit of the Loom, but ones from the dept. store we bought our bras at. Quality is not cheap.
Let me preface this with… I think my hubby is probably THE tightest man when it comes to money, so this year when ‘back to school’ was a lot more than what he had figured, he spent the whole day moaning, groaning, bitching, whining, complaining, telling anyone he spoke to, how he was being taken advantage of. Let’s just say his mood was not a pleasant one.
My father has a defibrillator for his heart, and if hubby had one it would have gone off almost constantly the past few days.
If it were just me, he wouldn’t have spent a dime, but because it’s the girls he pretty much has to. lol
(This is the only time of the year I can get new bras etc.)
By the end of yesterday, having to spend more money and…. actually having to take us to lunch, I was expecting to have to take him to the ER with a heart attack! lol
I pointed out how lucky he’s been, starting out with 2 boys, and how up until now having girls that didn’t really care much about clothes, BUT, then I delivered the coup de grace,…. I reminded him that our oldest daughter now has a boyfriend, and is a junior in high school which means….. PROM!!!!!!!!!! (bwahahahahahaha) I get my jollies where I can. BIG HUGS, Steph
