A couple of days ago, my 8 year old came into the kitchen while I was cooking dinner. She said, “Mommy, I have a gift for you!”
When I turned around, I saw her standing on the kitchen tile with a large gift bag hanging rather heavily on one arm.
I gasped because I thought for a moment, because of the way she had said it, that she might have had the baby in there. Then, I dismissed that silly notion from my head because I just knew that would be ridiculous.
