I have learned one very important lesson during this short journey of parenthood. My children have a way with making me eat my words. First, it was buying the little stinkers character clothing.
Jeremy and I aren't really the type of people that want a bunch of lit up Christmas paraphernalia in our yard. But when those blue eyes and dimpled grin, from Evan, looks up at you and asks, "please can we get the reindeer, the kind that the heads move back and forth", what can you do ;-)! I, of course, wanted to buy them right away, but I waited for E to ask Jeremy.
Jeremy of course, looked at me with the "look" and then promised Evan the hideous herd of deer.
We had to run to 3 stores before finding the "moving" ones. Because of course, that is exactly what Evan wanted.
I promise, there will not be any blow-up figures in our yard, ever!! Well, at least until next year! :-)
