Hmmm....should we plan a D-Mom get together in Va Beach and go to Busch Gardens? LOL! How cool would that be? All of us walking around with our little ones and having time to just sit and talk :) It's possible!!
Anyway, I enjoyed every single second of the chatting last night and I hope to set up a "meeting" once a week for all of us. Are Sunday evenings a good time? I know we will chat on msn as each of us is online but I'd like to have a day that we could all know that we'd be online.
Thanks girls for a great time last night!!
Now, onto the "gift". We had gone to Walmart last night to pick up some stuff for lunches this week and for Kayleigh to get more supplies to make fondant since she's got a 2 tier cake to make for Friday. Whenever we go to Walmart as a family, we always split up. Frankie takes Kacey and they usually go to the hunting department and I take Kayleigh and we go pick up things we need. While we were in there, Kacey convinced Frankie to take her to the jewelry department. She's been wanting a locket to put Granny's picture in and I've told her to tell Santa but I figured she went on and bought one since she was carrying a small black box. I questioned her about it and she assured me it was NOT a locket because it was a present for me. A present for ME? Why? She smiled and said, "I will tell you when we get home."
Once we got home, I still had groceries to put away and dinner to start. She was just thrilled about whatever she had in the little black box. I finally had to stop what I was doing and sit down on the couch. She grinned at me and told me to close my eyes. I did. I felt her place the little black box in my hand and then I was instructed to open my eyes. The box lid was still on and I carefully opened it. What I saw next immediately brought me to tears!Why? Why did you spend your money on me? She replied, "Mommy, that is for taking care of me and Sissy when we were sick." OK....so now I'm REALLY crying! I explained to her that it was my "job" to take care of them and she didn't need to buy me anything to thank me. I hugged them both.
Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE my "job"?
