This afternoon Tom and I returned from an overnight getaway, and I remembered too late my promise to "bring back a surprise" if the girls were good. Scrambling in my emergency fun box, I came up with some candy necklaces. "Perfect!" I thought. I gave Hannah (4) hers first, and she munched away happily. Linsey(6), was slightly more suspicious.
"Are these for Christmas?" she asked doubtfully. "Mine has a Christmas tree on it."
"Those are regular trees, and the necklace is for anytime, " I assured her quickly.
Still doubtful, she looked at me questioningly, "Then why does Hannah's have Santa on it?"
"JUST EAT your candy!"
And the moral of the story is...
Never look a gift horse in the mouth!!
