Do You Buy Yourself a Mother's Day Gift From a Pet?

Do You Buy Yourself a Mother's Day Gift From a Pet?


One sunny May Sunday in NYC, shortly before North's first birthday, I was doing some shopping of my own when I saw a pretty white eyelet skirt. Now did I need this item? No, definitely not. But did I want it? Absolutely. I remember desperately searching for a reason to justify such an impractical purchase (white being not the most ideal color to wear on dirty subway rides or walks with muddy-pawed pups), yet I couldn't. I was about to leave the store and decided to call my mom to wish her a Happy Mother's Day, and take my mind off the skirt, when it hit me. I could buy myself the skirt, but consider it a Mother's Day pressie from my lil pooch. Admittedly, I've never done it after that first time back in 2003, but it seemed like a brilliant idea at the time. Am I alone here? If you've ever considered – or bought – a "present" for yourself from your pet with your money (obvs), tell me what and when in your comments below.
