My dad’s girlfriend Gina is the world’s best gift giver. She has the ability to find a novelty gift that I just love. For Mother’ Day she sent me a musical card that played “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” It said to relax and rejuvenate – I deserved it. Tucked inside the card was a Yankee Candle car scent called Island Spa. It is a small gift that says “I am thinking about you.”
When both my kids were born she got knitted sweaters with their names on them. After Isaac grew out of his I put it on a teddy bear that he sleeps with. He calls it his “Isaac bear.”
Plus I had this sweet little rocker that Tim’s grandpa gave us. It was Tim’s mom’s rocker when she was a little girl. It had been taking up room in our playroom but Isaac never used it. I loved the thought of picturing Tim’s mom rocking on it when she was a little girl and now my little girl will use it someday.
