Re: What do you miss...
The lightbulb post. That was the highlight of my day. I wish I had some light bulbs to send you!!
I'm always the "big bad" mom too. When I used to work on saturday nights I'd bring my kids fresh donuts on sundays as a splurge (usually only once a month) the last two times I've told them that I can't. But really that money is better used somewhere else. It's just hard to have to explain that to kids. Our oldest kind of "gets" it and he is very careful what he asks for. He's a freshman in highschool and there is ALWAYS something with him being in sports or band. I feel kind of guilty when he comes home and I have to figure out where to get the money to pay for something because I can tell he doesn't want to stress me out.
