Mom came home from work today and baked cookies for over two hours. Then she took almost all the cookies and went to the Karate Holiday Party. It was a pot luck and mom brought cookies. Everyone loved them and she came home with none.
While at the party, mom talked to one of the instructors. He is a third degree black belt. He is also a police officer. He may very well meet the men who broke into mom's house. He said that breaking into a house, occupied or not, is a felony, punishable by three and a half to seven years in prison. WOO HOOOOOO! They gonna be in the big house a looooong time!
The boy asked point blank if Santa was real today. Mom tried to dodge the issue, but he is 10-1/2 and he was beginning to have serious doubts. So mom did a dumb thing. She told him the truth.
Of course, being the smart boy that he is, he figured out that mom is also the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. It is 11:30 pm and he just went to bed after considering how his life was terrible now that he knew the truth about Santa. He told mom that he "forced" her to tell him, but mom says she should have known better. Sigh. Here is last year's picture with Santa.
Ah well. Off to the vet tomorrow. Hope all is well. I don't think mom needs any more stress.
