When G. has to buy me a present for some holiday, say, Valentine's Day, he tends to take the boys to the local drugstore and let them pick out whatever they want (as long as it's under $10). That's how I got Softsoap in a jungle animal pump bottle for Mother's Day last year.

I came home from work last night and A. told me, "We bought you a Valentine's Day present, Mama!"

Me: "Oh yeah? What was it?"

A: "Well, we got you a lipstick!"

Me: "Oh yeah?"

A: "Yeah! And it's a color you don't have!"

Yay! I know G. wouldn't buy me a lipstick without my input, but he'd let A. pick one out, I'm pretty sure. I wondered what I'd do when A. wanted me to wear this lipstick, which was likely to be an blue-ish orange.

Me: "So, what color is it?"

A.: "Lemon!"


and, for Sarah, as requested, the boys frolicking in the new bed:

Your boys are so incredibly cute. Seriously, they bring a tear to my eye.

While I'm at it, you're a good mom. And way prettier than Jared Padalecki.

Moral of this story - if you ever have a secret to keep, NEVER tell A.

I wonder if it tastes like lemon too?

I thought I was the only one who got gifts from Walgreens....:)

I actually received four new tires for my car this year, though! Romance is not dead.

I think it's actually lip gloss or lip balm, which is why A. thinks it's lemon-colored. I hope.

Maria, yeah, I'm hoping for the day when he takes them to Nordstrom's and says, "OK, pick out something for Mama."
