I am not one to splurge, especially on myself. But today, I did. It wasn’t much of a splurge as far as splurges go, but it made me very happy and it was inexpensive. It was a bracelet, four stretchy bands threaded with small turquoise pebbles of varying size and colors. I cut the tag off it right there in the store and put it on my arm.
I was admiring my new purchase later in the day.
me: This bracelet makes me feel pretty! I feel like I now have a piece of “real” jewelry, even though I know it didn’t cost much but…”
carter: Oh, momma! You always have nice jewelry because you are a jewel!
Sigh. Watch that boy, he is going to be a real smooth talker when he grows up – heck he already is. And he sure melted this momma’s heart.
