Six Word Saturday

"Mummy Can We Buy A Pumpkin?"

If you had any idea how many times I have heard these words you would know how much the very sound of them jingles in my head and my mind screams out please not again!

Simply put, Chipmunk wanted a pumpkin this week.

I don't blame him,I love pumpkins too.

He had seen one on Saturday while we were shopping but we couldn't carry it home at that point so I said 

"Of course you can have a pumpkin when we next come to the shops"

Well what with the weather we didn't make it too the shops for a couple of days and that boy was desperate for a pumpkin and he let me know about it!

Mummy can we get a pumpkin today please mummy please

Please mummy can we get a pumpkin,pleeeeease

All the pumpkins will be gone mummy...

And it went on and on and on like this day after day.

So I did the only sensible thing possible and bought him a pumpkin!

And hey presto the questioning stopped and it was replaced with big grins and a very proud little boy who keeps his pumpkin in his bedroom window and loves it!

  9. Pumpkins are necessary for Halloween. We used to go to a u-pick-um farm with our kids and pick out a couple/few to carve. We'd get some apples too. But the last two years our teenagers haven't had the free weekends in the fall with school and all. I am crushed! So love the pumpkins while they last!

    1. Morning Susan :-) I have two teenagers and I know what you mean about how the old traditions kind of get left behind,that sort of thing also makes me wistful.So I know I'm lucky to have the oppurtunity to fully celebrate the festivals that kids love,like Halloween.Next thing will to get a costume ready,eek!

  11. How about letting him paint his pumpkin, so much safer and fun. OOps but then no candle, no baked pumpkin seeds. :(
