Nicole, earlier this week, Ester wrote about what's it worth for us to live alone
. You and I live alone in our respective cities. Want to talk about how that happened?
Meaghan:: Um, can I buy baby booties for $60 with tax and shipping? No, right?
Mike: Hah I mean if you need them. If they are just cute, um, maybe close the tab
Meaghan: JUST VERY CUTE.
Mike: You know that baby clothes last for like, 5 days and then they grow out of it
Meaghan: Definitely. Also we just bought him functional winter booties that were a third of this price. Also they are 0-6 months and he’s 5 months and generally follows the size guidelines. But I mean, look at them.
Mike: Omg. Hah, they are very cute
Meaghan: I put in my card info then saw the shipping and tax and was like WAIT WHAT AM I DOING?
Mike: The Cost of Being Cute For One Month
You ever think we’re going to be the last generation that does presents? Like, we were the last generation that did trick-or-treating as a door-to-door thing, don’t most kids do organized Candy Events now? And we were the last generation that did birthday parties where everyone brought gifts, now it’s like “bring a used book for charity, please do not bring my child a Spiderman toy.”
My older son is 4 and he knows that dad works at a casino and sometimes his work takes 2 hours (bad day) and sometimes it takes 14 hours (good, but long day).
