The Monkey told me today, "Mummy, you need to start being silly. Right now". I think I've been a wee bit tense and serious the last few days. When even your 3 year old tells you off, I think it's time to start unleashing your inner ridiculousness.
We had a nice day today, a kindy interview to start with and then headed off to Ikea to buy the Possum a new highchair (Antilops for the win!). The Monkey was thrilled to see that it was decorated for Christmas including muzak and her Christmas junkie mother wasn't far behind.
I did pretty well for me, only came home with about $80 more stuff than I planned, which I think is pretty damn impressive. The best thing I bought being a new laptop table called Dave which will soon house my brand new, scarily impressive laptop.
And then we picked up my ring, and I breathed a sigh of relief, and finally got my sense of nonsense back and spent the afternoon being silly. Which made the Monkey very happy indeed.
