This is an actual conversation that happened this weekend (paraphrased, of course).
Me: So what do you think about not having a birthday party this year for Scarlett?
Ross: I think that’s a great idea. You know me, I would prefer we do nothing all the time. But why?
Me: I said we were only going to do a tea party.
Ross: Like an Alice in Wonderland tea party?
Me: No, just a regular tea party but I can’t be trusted not to let this thing spin out of control. I don’t have time to worry about my crazy.
Ross: True statement.
Me: So, you’re okay with this?
Ross: This might be the best idea you’ve ever had. Besides, we won’t be able to afford a birthday party once the electric bill comes in. Stupid auxiliary heat! Wait, did it just kick on again? ARGH! *shakes fists*
He’s obsessed with the auxiliary heat. Listen, it was below 0 degrees this weekend. I’m okay with the auxiliary heat kicking in. I like my toes where they are . . . on my feet.
So, there you have it. No birthday party this year but we’ll have plenty of pics from Disney.
