Well, I was running short on time preparing for our trip to California this weekend. While out picking up a final gift for my nephew, I realized it would save some time and effort if I went ahead and picked up a card at the store I was visiting.
Then I learned an ugly truth.
I have apparently been overlooking momentous, card-worthy occasions in the lives of my family, friends and neighbors for all these years!
You see, they actually make greeting cards for all of the following occasions:
- losing a tooth
- getting a cat
- potty training
- earning a Girl Scout badge
- scoring a point in a ballgame
- getting a dog
So, dear friends, I hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive the fact that I've neglected to adequately recognize all those teeth your kiddos lost. I apologize with all my heart for failing to congratulate your children for crapping on the toilet - with a card. My gosh, how could I have missed the chance to let you know - on paper - how awesome and special you are for adopting a fur-baby or nabbing that sewing patch from your creepy scout leader?
I honestly didn't know those were Hallmark occasions!
