A photo for most of my days....
I am so much better about waiting or not buying things I need than waiting on things for the little ones. If I even remotely think they might need it I start to worry about not having it.
I think that you appreciate things more if you have to wait a little bit for them.
I understand. I do agree that things are more appreciated when one doesn't buy on a whim & waits for it.
I need some of your self-control . . .
Your son is looking so grown up.....waiting is a good thing, our real needs are quite minimal but all the nicer when something new is bought.
Learning to wait is an important lesson that many children these days never learn. And he will appreciate it more than if you replaced it immediately. He is looking so grown up!!
