Did I tell you the first thing Mr. Daddy bought with some of our windfall? Did I? Take a gander:
I'm getting new dishes! After ten, almost eleven, years of eating off the same dishes, I'm getting this gorgeous scarlet Fiestaware set. I'm so giddy it's almost like getting married all over again.
On another love related note, Bubba has a Sweetheart Dance at school tomorrow. This morning as we were getting ready, I heard Mr. Daddy and Bubba talking.
"Do you have a girlfriend these days, Bubba?"
"NO!" he replied gruffly, with just a tinge of embarrassment in his voice.
"Did a girl break your heart?"
"Has a girl been mean to you? 'Cause they'll do that sometimes, you know."
At this point I could no longer hold my peace. "Yeah, they'll do that to you if you're a...a..." I fumbled for something appropriate to say in front of a 5-year-old.
"If you're a silly boy" Bubba piped up.
Well, that wasn't quite what I was thinking, but it'll do.
I'm off to make pigs in a blanket for tomorrow's preschool soiree. 'Cause nothing says love like miniature hotdogs wrapped in a croissant.
