... AND birthday, too... what to do?
My son's 18th birthday is Friday... he graduates from High School the following week... two big occasions and I am at a loss at what to get him, given my budget. There will be no new cars, no fancy trips abroad or even across the country. I know he'd really like me to pay for a week at Harmony University -- a week long intensive barbershop training 'camp' that happens every summer. But, how do I pay for that when I'm still trying to figure out how to get college paid for?
So... here we go, trying to figure out a creative way to just give him some money... and hope I even see him on his birthday... it IS a Friday, ya know... not exactly an evening he spends with his mom!
But, I think Summer gave me an idea... she suggested that since I'm short on money, I should by a lottery ticket. Well, I know she meant that I should buy myself a lottery ticket... but I'm thinking, "there's the perfect gift!" Who knows, I could end up giving my son Two Hundred Twenty-Two Million Dollars! Now, THAT would make me Mom of the Year!
