Things, on the home front you could say, seem to be returning back to “normal” … whatever that is. LOL! Jessie is adjusting to life outside of school and is finding that she abhors doing chores. (heh, what kid doesnâ€™t?) Of course she went on this long tirade the other night about how chores are cruel and kids shouldnâ€™t have to do them and how when she gets home, all she wants to do â€œis just sit down and relaxâ€ â€¦
ROFL â€¦ yeah, so would I. ;)
Heh, that aside, things are finally settling down for the most part. Though now her mother has started picking at her for the way she dresses, etc. I had bought her a new pair of crocs â€“ these are bright pink and Jessie loves them. Her mother now complains because her shoes donâ€™t match her outfits â€¦ and that she needs to â€œstart matching more.â€
WTF? Who freakinâ€™ CARES if she matches? I mean honestly, what 9 year old has a pair of shoes to match every outfit? None that I know â€¦
Well, she also picks at Jessie because I had bought her a new headband â€“ you know the kind that look like a scarf and the ends hang down? Well, Jessie loves it, and I thought it was pretty. Jessie wears it with every outfit and my justification was that it matches her new shoes. :) (Itâ€™s pink and yellow and purple) Her mother, of course, hates it and makes Jessie take it off when she gets to her house.
*shrug* Whatever â€¦ Jessie was upset when I picked her up yesterday about it, and I hugged her and told her to â€œignore what Mommy saysâ€ and that she looks just fine.
If you ask me, her mother is in NO position to critique anyone elseâ€™s wardrobe choices! Hers look like something out of Britney Spearsâ€™ closet!
Aaaaaannnnyways, I’m hoping to start back furniture shopping soon, as we will soon be in need of a new couch. (Kids and cats — they wear them out! LOL!!)
