Hope you all had a great weekend!
Wanted to update my very sweet and thoughtful readers: Friday, Sunshine brought home two things from school, a card and a flower. She gave me the card and took the flower to her mom. I told her it was very sweet of her to share her gifts between her moms.
Then…Then!!!! She called Sunday morning to tell me “Happy Mother’s Day” and “I love you.” (Also, “Ninja Boy does too.”)
It wasn’t just the card or the phone call that was so sweet, but the fact that at age six she can make two totally different women both feel incredibly special at the same time. That she made sure she was “fair” and “even” with her gifts. (As I told The Man – who was PO’d that she was even giving BM something – she knows what she’s doing. I have flowers in my garden and her mom doesn’t – she just wants to make everyone happy and with me she succeeds at that EVERY DAY.)
On a different note, I have a new *feature* for The Garden!
I call it The Complaint Room.
I can’t even count how many times I’ve written a post just to re-read it and think, “Hmmm…people probably don’t care all that much about that.” But writing is truly the cure for what ails ya, right? Sometimes we don’t need a whole blog post to devote to our frustrations, but just to vent and get it out. Sometimes we just want to complain.
That’s what the complaint room is for. It’s not a support group where your e-friends will jump in with condolences and sympathy. It’s just a place to “get it out.”
So…the next time you are just P.I.S.S.E.D. and want to blow off some steam, pick the appropriate topic and complain away. Sign in with your Blogger name or do it anonymously. I won’t even put a hit counter on it, I swear. Your complaints will be totally anonymous should you choose.
I also created a little button link for it, which will be moving on down the sidebar soon to a more permanent home.
