I really enjoyed our Christmas break. It was so fun to have all the kids to myself. No dance, basketball or a million other things demanding our time and attention. But like all good things, Monday came way too soon. :P
Yesterday I was feeling a bit sorry for myself if I'm being honest. ;) Chloe and I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few things we needed for dinner and I splurged. I bought a package of big, bright red, sweet smelling strawberries. And I didn't just get the measly one pound package. No way, Jose. I bought the big kahuna. Two pounds of beautiful (and delicious!) berries.
Let me tell you. It was worth every out-of-season penny I spent. I hid them, too. I didn't want my kids to know I had them. They've been happy. They were still smiling and laughing when they came home from school. They didn't need them. These berries were for me!
I did come to my senses and have shared them. And they taste sweeter for it. Plus my kids know me well now and ask before they eat them. Haha.
