So, I'm writing this on a Friday, which should be a happy thing, right?
Well, kind of...
You see, at this very moment I am staring down the barrel of a three-birthday-party-weekend.
And to those of you who are thinking that three birthday parties is a happy thing, I say once again:
Well, kind of...
Because to a mom, three birthday parties means three presents: presents that need to be purchased and wrapped.
Now I'd love to tell you that I have a "gift closet" tucked away somewhere, a place where I store a variety of pre-wrapped presents appropriate for different ages and genders.
(But I don't.)
A three-birthday-party-weekend usually finds me in a last-minute panic at the local toy store.
And while I'm there--if I'm lucky--I might manage to buy some decent wrapping paper.
But no matter what, you can always be certain about one thing:
I'm going to forget the card.
Every. Single. Time.
And sometimes that's not a problem; sometimes my daughters like to make their own cards.
But on a three-birthday-party-weekend? One that also includes play rehearsal and tennis lessons and homework? Well, those are the times that you will find me fashioning a lovely card out of scraps of leftover wrapping paper.
So when Shutterfly offered me some of their photo stickers, I knew just what I wanted to do with them:
I left my older daughter's in color, but for the little one I played around using black and white with a pop of color.
Then I added a little message. You can do this right from the Shutterfly site if you don't use a photo editing software.
Everyone's a winner!
And that, my friends? That is definitely a happy thing!
