andy, that's so nice. your comment about "on par with no school" made me smile.
my smile today was sleeping. yep, all day. almost 9 hours while dw took my boy shopping.
but a bigger smile came upon my face, maybe well hidden, when they got home all stressed out. dw asked me how i was able to keep his attention, and how i got him to shop all day on this past mother's day in things like clothing stores (mens and kids) and kitchen stores.
i told her that you not only have to make it fun, but you need to spark his imagination by describing what he can do in the clothes, from fishing trips, (for shorts and shirts), to body surfing the waves (for sandals and bathing suits), to spring school wear (ok, so sweat your butt off in class, ya little bastid, lol. it can't all be rosey).
dw has so little imagination ( except for imagining a decent hubby, lol) but being so hard and practical, she's my anchor.
or else we'd be the crazy family down the block that everyone aviods.
