When I was growing up there were some days when I would get home from school and there was a treat on my bed. Recently I asked my mom about those treats. She said she would put a treat on my bed on Fridays. "Only if I had a good week?," I asked. "No...good or bad, just a treat for making it through the week," was her response.
Bat bag for Jay.
I loved the treats I used to get and I loved her response. Sometimes kids (and adults!) need a little treat "just because"...a treat that says..."You are special. When I wasn't with you this week, I saw this and thought of you."
"Tangled" shirt for Betsy.
We made it through our first week of school...and believe me, there were many times I thought of them. Hopefully they thought of me some too! :)
