Anyway, my point is that this ridiculous fundraiser where they sell cheap, expensive crap irritates me. But Owen is totally devastated that we aren't doing it because "we can win stuff, Mom". Which I will also take the time to say is cheap crap that they win. It's a vicious circle.
Typically what I have done in the past is order a couple of magazines and called it good. But I pretty much get any magazine that I am interested in. Poor Owen, he is going to have to be heartbroken because I am the mean mom that doesn't do it. Although, I do have a friend who doesn't do it either, but mostly because on pickup day, it's totally chaotic and not handled well and she doesn't like dealing with that part of it.
Instead, we are going to let him take his aggression out on the walls in the upstairs bathroom which is being redone. Nothing makes you feel better like punching a hole in the wall and your parents think it's okay!
