This post is in no way meant to be bitter.
Mothers, holidays & gifts.
Yesterday I went to Wal Mart to pick out my birthday present.
I gave them to Jared to wrap with the boys.
How many times have we done this?
I've picked up my own Christmas, Mother's day, & bday gifts forever.
Valentines Jared knows I want See's.
I'm sure it all started with the first month we were married.
Jared bought me a super nice bangle bracelet.
He didn't know my hands & wrists
are too small for a bangle.
I think that traumatized him from ever buying me presents.
Ever since then, I get my own.
Or how about the gifts we get that are for the family.
I got car mats for Christmas.
Sippy cups or vacuum cleaner for a birthday.
New tires for a Mother's day. Etc.
I think the best part is when I ask Grant to wrap my present,
he says I have to leave the room so I don't know what it is.
Here's to Moms being happy enough to not care.
