Antique Mommy, I just came over from Big Mama’s blog. Your blog is wonderfully refreshing! And it’s soooo nice to read a blog from somebody in my age group. I was really starting to feel like the “Granny Grunt” of blogdom. Of course, I don’t have children at home (unless of course, you count my 86 year old mother), but I have grandchildren that are 5 (two of these), 3, and 17 months!
Man, after six kids my answer would be, “or maybe YOU should clean up YOUR room (that we provide and we also feed you and clothe you…insert diatribe here).” Your answer was better. You son is lucky that you are his mom.
Sometimes. . .well. . .sometimes it’s just as much fun for us to go to Wal-Mart and buy them some toys as it is for them. My son is, right this second, enjoying a race track rug I bought him for just that very reason–’cause I wanted him to have it.
