should have been flowers
I just remembered this as I going through photos from the last month. I was feeling mighty proud of myself. I wrapped presents for Lotus Bud's birthday and I was full of excitement because I never, ever got wrapped presents when I was kid. OK, so maybe I got one or two, but I never, ever got fun, frilly bows. It was an expense I thought was well worth it for my child. But she took one look at them and said "I said flowers, moogy, not stripes!" Oh well, I know I enjoyed them a lot and I noted that she stopped complaining when she saw what was inside.
