Know what this is like?

It's like buying your kid who's been in the orchestra for 1 year a Stradivarius to practice with.

Or tearing up the backyard and putting in an olympic-size pool 'cause your kid says they like to swim and they think they're fast.

Or or buying a super duper camera 'cause it's a craptastic hobby of yours.



That's what I did do.

So you get that I'm saying that it's excessive, right?

Exorbitant. Overkill. Unneccessary. Extravagant. Superfluous.

But I needed a new camera. And Joanna was selling hers for a great price.

And when she offered it to me, I just couldn't get it out of my head. I believe my response to her went something like this:

So. . ..

I think. . .

I want it.


I think, I want it.

(I can't get it out of my head.)

Going to ask permission . . . NOW.

But don't expect better quality from me, umkay?

I've got two words for ya:


That's not to say that I won't have fun playing around.

'Cause I definitely will.

Ok, I've had my camera for like six months. It's totally inappropriate of me to already be wanting upgrades.

So I'll just drool over yours.

So don't mind the puddles.

I'm feeling all jealousy right now. I want to be taking craptastic pictures with a camera I don't deserve! Good for you, have fun!

Good for you! You deserve it because of all of the motherly things you have to do. Like cleaning poo from the tub.
