As I ate some eggs and an english muffin for breakfast this morning, I commented to the kids about how much I’ve been enjoying the jar of plum butter from Aunt Phoebe that I recently opened. Hayden wanted to know whether she was younger or older than me, so I mentioned that she has a birthday coming up in a few weeks, and that we should be sure to send her something.
“Yeah,” he said. “In a BOX.”
Clearly, the box of goodies she sent for his birthday made an impression on him! He wanted to work on her gift right away, but I thought it was more important to get ready for school… So as I drove to work a bit later, I started thinking about what special treats we will put in the box.
If a box showed up on your doorstep with your name written on it, what would you hope to find inside? What items are on your wish list? I’d love to know.
