This Thursday is my best friends birthday and when it comes to getting gifts I have a bad problem with giving gifts way to early. I gave her her gift last month. I told you it was bad. But this Friday we will be going out to dinner for a celebration of her birthday, and you can’t show up empty-handed to a birthday party.
Knowing that she is much like an aunt to my children, I figured why not jump into the car, head to Walmart and let them pick out which card they wanted to get her. If there’s one thing my children love most, it would have to be birthdays. Yep, I said it. Birthdays. They absolutely love birthdays and not just their birthdays but anyone at any time, anywhere could be having a birthday party and they would want to be there. Not only do they love them but they will talk about it for a week straight. Before and after. Then next time we say we have a birthday party to go to they just assume it’s said birthday party we went to last week.
Anyways…. As I was walking through Walmart when my boys noticed the Hallmark Minion cards. Trying to walk away from this adorable card would have been like fighting off mama bear protecting her prey. That’s right, they would have gone crazy. The kind of crazy you leave the store for. The crazy that’s every mom’s worst nightmare in public. Yes, that crazy is why I didn’t walk away plus the kid inside me fell in love with these cards too.
Let’s just say that my friend Yari will now have the coolest gift box and a birthday card to go along with it from my boys. And I’m sure she will love it. LOVE IT.
Please tell me I’m not the only mom who has kids who love birthday parties as much as mine do?
