The girl turned 18 last Friday.
I had asked her months before what she wanted for her birthday.
Here at the Chocolatechic household like to be informed and we make lists.
The lists make sure that we are getting something that the other person wants.
Guessing causes stress and angst and that is just something I just. don’t. need.
The girl wanted a tattoo for her birthday.
I said Okay.
Then a few weeks later she said “Mama, how about we get matching tattoo’s.”
There was no way that I was going to say no to that.
Noon on her birthday found us at the tattoo parlor, along with one of her friends, J.
And while the girl smiled and laughed during her tattoo…
You’d think that a 40 year old woman who has given birth…twice…could handle a measly tattoo, but nooo.
At least I didn’t cry.
