Mommy Growing up: No strings attached

No strings attached

The new school year is out here and the kids were screaming out for new school supplies. Mommy Kate, in her desire to teach the value of frugality convinced them to get contented with their slightly used stuffs. However, the kids squealed more for an updated school supplies. The Mommy, then remembering her own childhood days of course understood how it felt.

Everybody hates to end the vacation and having new stuffs to parade around at school is fair enough to get excited LOL. So the Mommy, as not to upset the Dad, sneakily bought her kids new sets of clothes, shoes and school supplies.

When the Dad found out later, he was not so thrilled especially upon knowing the total not-in-the-budget cost incurred. To diffuse the situation, the Mommy revealed she received some bonus, more than enough to cover all her shopping expenses. So the Dad, satisfied with the news, just let the issue go.

Three days later after the classes resumed, Mommy received a big blow. The kindergarten school that took her little girl in told her their mistake. They said they just realized that Mommy's daughter is a foreigner, hence she needs to pay an additional 5600$nt more for the tuition fee. Ouch! Mommy was flabbergasted.

Mommy was indeed beyond pleased when she received an extra amount of money falling from air, but then in a blink of an eye she would have to see it drained down the hole. Isn't that ironic! The problem was ~ there's nothing left to drain. *sad*

When the Dad learned about it, then goes the familiar word "I told you so". So the sad Mommy once again realized~ some money comes and then it goes. It lingers for a while, but still it goes. No strings attached.

Tomorrow is the first day of school here,thankfully,aside from clothes and shoes, I do not have to worry about school supplies, from bag up to small piece of eraser will be provided by the school.Although some parents bought their kids some stuff,but because it's their choice and the school actually doesn't recommend it.
