So where were you last night at midnight? Curled up in your bed in the Land of Nod. Well, so was I up until 11pm when i was woken to go on an adventure with my teenage son. It was his first time so he was super excited and i was more than agreeable in order to make him happy and to up my super cool mother kudos. He even had a shower before we left (bonus with stinky teenage boys).
So where did we go?
|Shopping, i hear you say. Well not exactly since the goods were already pre-ordered and pre-paid but yes we did go to our local shopping plaza to pick up the goods, at midnight.|
Am i being too defensive? Probably, since the only people who read me are pretty cool and very understanding of my situation. Its important to me that Tom does what other kids are doing and going to midnight launches is a very cool thing to do. The thing that confused me was where were all the other Mums and Dads. There were quite a few young boys there (12-16) that were unsupervised. Were they all gathered somewhere having coffee and i didn't get the invite? There did appear to be a few cars outside but all vacant. Perhaps, and I'm hoping, they took the opportunity to do their shopping for groceries while they waited. Yes, we have 24hr shopping here.
Please don't send me messages about sexual exploitation of young girls. It was a bit a fun and when i asked them if i could take their photo they rushed to grab their props in order to look the part.
|Tom, leaving with his booty.|
|The Booty - with some pretty cool dog tags.|
|We have this picture on our fridge. We call them Aspie Headphones because they stop the talking as well.|
