Unexpected Holiday Joys
I was going through our mound of mail this weekend — family Christmas cards and Macy’s circulars and charities’ pleas for money… oh my! — and came across a homemade envelope with no return address. Curious as to who was so cheap, er… I mean, CREATIVE, I immediately peeked inside. Just goes to show you shouldn’t judge an envelope by its cover, because what I found…? Was the BEST. CARD. EVER.
Daycare totally made my year with this. If you look up “miserable” in the dictionary, you will find this picture of my daughter. It’s not clear if she’s unhappy because of her, um, unique Christmas get-up or the knowledge that they’re going to spell her name wrong on her behalf, but the important thing is: I CANNOT STOP LAUGHING. No! I kid! The important thing is the effort and loving sentiment. Yeah, that’s it.
When Mr. Candy finally managed to tear the card out of my hands, as I rolled around on the floor laughing, he gasped:
“Oh, my God. DID THEY TAPE HER TO THE WALL?”
At which point I may or may not have peed myself. Or, as a certain displeased 16-month-old I know would call it, “Skyler’s” Revenge.
