Wallene was eating breakfast the other day when she happen to mention that her friends were jealous that she had Pooldad and I as parents.
I had to laugh and ask her why? She said, "Because you let me eat pizza for breakfast. And sometimes you let me stay home from school just because."
Yes, I am waiting for C hild P rotective S ervices as we speak. heehee
Let's be clear. She doesn't get pizza for breakfast all the time. I swear. In fact, we rarely have leftovers of pizza because I don't like any pizza except Nino's [NC] and Bizzy's homemade. But breakfast is the most important meal of the day and since Wallene's favorite pizza is pineapple - I figure she is eating fruit, veggies [sauce], protein [cheese] and grains [crust]. I know - I can rationalize anything. Just give me a minute and a blog. I am there.
As for staying home "just because" - okay, okay - I will grant her the Super Bowl sleep hangover was kind of special [I was still within my rights], but the day of the wicked lightening storm? There was just no way she was walking to the bus stop that day. I had no choice but to keep her home.
I am her Mom and as long as her Dad and I are on the same page - we are raising her the way we want. But really? No one allows their kids pizza for breakfast on occasion or has let them stay home when they weren't sick?
C'mon. I can't believe I am the only one. :D
Wallene's Great Aunt sent us a nice little gift and since Wallene has never had a birthday party with friends we thought it might be nice to have a few of her friends go to a bowling party on Saturday. This will be the first time ever she has celebrated with anyone other than us, so it promises to be fun. 6 14 year old girls bowling for two hours [with soda, pizza, ice cream and cake thrown in] I think it will be a fun afternoon at Bowl America. [You didn't think I was having them all over here did you? Pish. Perish the thought.] And B/A has the most fantastic, all inclusive deal. I was shocked. And happy. We only have to provide her cake.
At least our "reputation" proceeds us. And we'll be sending home the leftover pizza so all her friends can try and see if they can have it for breakfast. giggle
I hope y'all had a great Tuesday and Wednesday is even better! See ya' on the flipside.
