Today, Riley and I were merrily chatting about Christmas and he was telling me what toys he would like. Of course I went down the "well if your good, who knows what santa may bring" route. Then he said "I know what i'm getting you, BATS" Bats? I reply, racking my brain to think what he maybe thinking or trying to say. (He does get quite cross, if I dont comprehend immediately what he is trying to tell me) "Not bats, Bats mummy, you love them!!"
"Try and describe them, I might understand a little more" I tell him.
"You know BATS, those things that you have lots of, put on your cards and are always buying"
"BRADS?" I question. "Yes, thats it mummy, Bats"
OMG I realise that I am inflicting my obsession onto my four year old son. I dont know whether to be amazed that he pays such interest in my addictions and knows me so well, or do I question the fact that maybe I talk about brads and embellishments all day or something, do I??? I hope not. Either way , he is the cutest little chap in the whole world and he OFFERED to do the vacuuming today, oh yeah.... for £1.00 he..he.. (hes learning young)
I must confess though, I am not really a paper stroker, but I do like a nice stash of ribbons and embellishments and yes maybe it is spiralling out of control... Perhaps I do need help!!!!
