Yes we have celebrated another birthday in the Sprite household. It was my son's 11th birthday yesterday (30th).
It's amazing how time seems to have flown. It was not long ago that I was holding that piece of plastic with the two lines confirming what I already suspected. I wasn't surprised, freaked out, angry. I was content. Happy. Even though this pregnancy was an "accident" and I was a single mother, I couldn't have been more happier. This is what I was meant to be. A Mummy.
Anyway. We decided we wanted to buy him an electric guitar for his birthday. Hubby took him to the music shop one day and he took a fancy to a red Fender Squier. So, secretly, Hubby went back and ordered the red for him, and also picked one out for his birthday(which, as you know was a couple of weeks ago). They were around $170each. Anyway, the owner had to order our son's in. We got the call it had come in. Two days before son's birthday, Hubby goes to pick up both guitars and amps. Owner can't find son's anywhere, and then realises....
HE. SOLD. IT!!!
Hubby has a slight freakout (though remained remarkably calm for him). Owner is fuming with himself...
Pulls down a $700 Metallic Red Fender Stratocaster (OMG) and says "Here, have this one and I'll wear the extra cost myself"...
How extremely nice is that?
So now son has the guitar that Hubby always dreamed of....lol.
Son was suitably blown away.
So both my boys have their guitars. And I have decided I would like to learn to. But on an Acoustic. Which Hubby has.
Bought myself a pink .70cent pick and I am ready for my lessons..lol.
