Whenever my 2 1/2 year old son sets his sights on something that would just make his little world go round he chirps, ‘Momma, I whan-eht!’ He says it when he sees a ball. He says it when he sees a garbage truck. He says it - or maybe in this particular case – screams it when his baby brother is touching any one of the hundreds of toys we own. When my biggest boy says he ‘whans-eht,’ he will have it and he will have it now.
I’m proud to say my little apple didn’t fall far from the tree. There is a ring his momma wants SO bad. Every time I see it, I think ‘I whan-eht!’
Take a look at this beautiful bauble from jewelry designer Jamie Joseph. I’ve been drooling over her designs for years and years and years. Her work is exquisite. I visit the on line retail store Twist at least once a week to take a peek at the ring that I ‘whan.’
I guess I need to start saving my mad money for it. My husband doesn’t like to hear that I have a mad money stash. He keeps asking me if that’s the money I’m saving just in case I ever want to leave him. He doesn’t get it. Every girl needs a mad money stash. There’s just absolutely no reason to explain why $528 magically disappeared out of our checking account. I figure what he doesn’t know doesn’t hurt him, right?
Until I get all the details worked out however, I can totally relate to my son who ‘whans-eht’ all. Really, doesn’t every one? It’s just funnier when he says it.
