Est-ce que je suis un mère indulgent? Oui!

As I explained to a couple of you via gChat yesterday (yes, that is a hint to the rest of you to say Hi...I have a slow day ahead of me today!), I did what is probably the most absurd thing that I have ever done, and very well could be the most absurd thing I will ever do:

I booked plane tickets to take my little sister to visit her boyfriend in France.

She still talks to him every Saturday, exchanges constant emails and still wants to fork over some of her hard-earned money to go and see him...and since I did promise I would take her (and will happily make use of the free place to stay in France for a week:-)), here we go. The Boy is still not sure whether he will be able to take a week off, so we will have to figure out his status later on.

I am fully aware that this is just one more example of her being spoiled rotten, but she really wants to go and is going to pay quite a bit to do so...and basically she is just such a good kid that I feel like she deserves to do silly things like this. And again, who am I to turn down a week split between their (probably stunning) Paris flat and their (probably similarly stunning) summer beach home?

So, if you are wondering where I am from August 21-28 (Friday-Friday)...well, now you know...

Aww, well, it's an excuse for a holiday isn't it? My parents would have done the same for one of us, I know they would have, and we were overly spoilt (;D) so I don't think you should feel too bad for it ;)

You're only young once... and, yes, that means you too. :)

Enjoy!!!

That wouldn't make you "un mère indulgent" but "une mère indulgente" ;-)

Enjoy Paris!

Katia - That was what my online translator turned up! Somehow I was suspicious of its accuracy:-)

I think it's a great idea, and you should take advantage of a free place to stay :)
