Today I was spontaneously given 3 mysterious gifts by my son.
A little yellow car hidden within the pages of a Peter Singer book.
A book that has absolutely nothing to do with crochet wrapped in crochet.
And my remote control sandwiched between the pages of
The Science of Parenting.
Now the very fact that he has 'gifted' me with objects that I do, actually, already own- is beside the point.
Is is after all the thought that counts.
Nonetheless this third and final gift really captured my imagination this morning. I particularly loved the symbolic gesture that would have one searching out good parenting ideas only to find the television remote control is the answer.
How many times have I let ABC Kids or a DVD like Toy Story babysit my son while I sneak off for some sewing time?????? Well lets just say it has happened more than once. Particularly around a market week.
But ssshhh don't tell anyone, just concentrate on my awesome gifts.
Now I just need to find a place to put them.
