I went to the shops earlier in the week.
I saw something there that horrified me.
Tell me it isn't so.
And while I'm on the subject of horrifying decorations … Master 16 has declared he wants one of these.
Now it's not that I hate them … on other people.
It's not that I can't appreciate that they look kind of hip … on other people's children.
Just not my children.
I know I'm being old fashioned. I know I'm being the uncool Mum. I know I sound just like my Mother … "If God meant you to have holes in your ears/nose he'd have put them there". But the thought of him getting a ring through his nose kind of freaks me out … okay … totally freaks me out.
At 16 he is … apparently ... legally able to get one without my permission. So that's it I guess … all parental control down the gurgler … BOO HOO.
In other Master 16 news … he has his Year 10 formal coming up very shortly … preparations are being made. Here's a quick sneak peek.
New outfit means new shoes … and I just want to know … where, when and how did his feet get so incredibly, humongously and horrifyingly BIG … and are they ever going to stop growing?
What's horrifying you this Halloween?
What do you think of nose rings?
