shopping for valentines day
My oldest son has a girlfriend. Funny! At any rate he wanted to get her something for valentines day. At first it was candy from Ghyslain Chocolatier. http://www.ghyslain.com/ check out the website for this place, it is here in Union City which is a nice attraction. Okay the chocolates are handpainted french chocolates, and cost like $1.10 each. I told him I thought that 5th grade was a bit young to spend that much money on a girl. Rob buys me these chocolate like once in a while and only 3 or 4 of them. WOW! So at any rate we went shopping for something. He was quit limited on his money so we picked a small stuffed animal and he is going to bake her either a heart shaped brownie or cookie. That was Rob's idea. Jordan likes to bake brownies, and so Rob thought that would be a good idea. Wow, the whole time we are doing this shopping thing, we were saying, "are we really ready for this?" UGH!!! I guess we don't have a choice in the matter, it is here. Rob is going to take Jordan on the "growing up trip" here in the next few weeks. We bought the "Preparing for adolescence" from Focus on the Family. It is pretty wild to see my boy changing like this, we are definately in a new relm of parenting. It is fun to hear him talk right now, his voice is extremely deep and sometimes startles me, and then it will crack. What a blast.
