It does make sense. My older 2 ruined so many of my things. I don't have anything nice now, the semi-nice things I have are put away until the youngest is oh, 18

I so totally understand. And believe it or not, I actually got a little teary eyed.

I'd been wearing cheap, dowdy clothes for years but when ds was about 15 months old I got myself a pea coat (you know, that black wool coat that sailors wear), the hippest thing I'd worn in years. I'd had it for a month when ds knocked a bottle of syrup on it. A whole month of coolness. I had to go back to wearing the ugly old rain coat my mom gave me.

Thank you all, so much, for your replies and hugs. It's so unlike me to get upset over something material. The lamp was $60 after my coupon and I just can't replace it right now, so that warm, homey, nice looking living room just isn't re-creatable right now. I'm sure the kids don't care and DH told me last night, "It's just a lamp, and anyway, we shouldn't have nice things while they're little, anyway" I don't consider one floor lamp (which we need for light in that room) an extravagent luxury item that should be only allowed when our kids are 18, kwim? I know our living room is still fine, but I loved the nice warm way it looked.

Anyway, knowing that there are people who understand what I'm feeling helps a lot. Thank you again

I'm sorry, mama. That's rough. Is there any way it can be fixed?

So sorry. I've got a kiddo who every time I leave him home with DH seems to break something. Usually something expensive and difficult to replace.
