Want, Want, Want! Why I'm Taking a Cue From My Toddlerby Me and Meg
So, I want a new bag. More specifically I would like a tan colored bag that I can wear; lately I have really been wanting to be hands free.
After a little shopping around, I think I've found something I like. Now the problem is, how do I get it?
I don't know how things run around your parts, but if I come home with a purchase over twenty dollars - I usually have some explaining to do. And unfortunately, said bag runs well over twenty dollars.
Don't get me wrong, I am not complaining. I love my life; I just love buying clothes too, but my husband likes saving and worrying about tomorrow. He's so silly.
I think I've come up with the perfect solution. I am going to take a page out of the kids' book and ask for it five thousand times until Wizz has no option except to relent. It's perfect.
I started the campaign yesterday, here is a little snippet of how I have been implementing my plan thus far:
Husband: "Hey babe, do you want me to grab Jax from the bus?"
Me: "Yeah, thanks. Oh and buy me that bag I want while you are at it. Thanks."
Husband: "What time do you have to leave tonight?"
Me: "Well since you want me to go buy myself that bag, I need to leave around 5 pm."
Me: "Can you grab a few things on your way home?"
Husband: "Sure, what do you need?"
Me: "Fresh rosemary, lemons, 2% milk, and that new bag I emailed you. Just pop over to the mall for that."
I have high hopes for this plan. Kids are really successful with it, so I think I can harness some of their power and get what I want.
What do you think ladies? Do you employ any tactics to get what you want?
