    If only I could vandalize from a great distance! But I’ll probably have to just send a card or something.

    It’s almost my mother’s birthday. Thanks for the idea! 😀


  3. I love that expression, “repurposed vandalized gifts”!


  4. Awwww! Thanks for the reminder and the warning. I need to lock up all my Harry Potter action figures.

    Just FYI, when I clicked on the email link, I got a “page not found” message. Just wanted to let you know in case it impacts your stats for the day.

      Oh, it’s might be because I accidentally hit publish before it was ready and then I took it down and scheduled it. I think it works now, thanks for the heads up!


  5. Ha! My 3 year old made me a card and put stickers all over it. She showed it to me, very proudly. She even said, “I am very proud!” When I reached out to take it from her she shouted, “But wait!!” And then she tore off all the stickers, stuck them to herself, and ran off, leaving me with a ripped up pink card that said MOM. (I still love it.)

    You have such a gift for capturing the important things in life in such a remarkably simple way. Thanks for the reminder by the way 🙂

    I love that mom at the end does look happy with the gift. I think that’s how it is for most mothers.
