difficult child HATES clothes shopping. Hates it. He complains, whines, drags his feet, etc. Then, in an attempt to get over it, he goes to the opposite extreme - pretending to be a model on a runway - sticking out his behind and shaking it for me when I ask him to turn around to see how the jeans fit and to check their length. Today happens to be our day to do back to school shopping and he has complained about it all week. Then, yesterday, he asks if he can play the Crane game in the mall - he said he will try very hard to be appropriate while shopping for clothes if he knows he can spend at least $1.00 on that game. On one hand, that game is totally rigged - I know I put a thread on about it a while ago and we discussed that fact - and difficult child knows it, too, but on the other hand . . . Can you imagine? If I had known all it would take was $1.00 and the Crane Game - I would've started saving up my quarters years ago!! I'll let you know how it works out!! Have you all already been through this annual rite of torture??
