Have you ever bought a present so far in advance and/or hid it so well that you completely forgot about it? I was in the attic of our garage a couple days ago and found this present that I had bought for Emery months ago and stashed away so that no one would see it. Keep in mind, this was going to be her BIG present from Santa, and a few days before Christmas, I started scrambling cuz I couldn’t figure out what her big Santa gift was going to be and never once remembered that I ALREADY HAD IT!
Her birthday’s not till July, and I really didn’t want to wait that long to give it to her since I knew how much she’d love being pulled around in it. So, I just put it together and told the girls I found a present we’d forgotten about. It was Christmas all over again! (Oh, and speaking of Christmas, I did finally get all our decorations put away. The girls loved keeping them up for a little while and Patrick wasn’t pressuring me to get rid of them either, so I was waiting to feel like I was ready to let everything go. Yesterday, I finally got that feeling! Once it was all boxed up, I couldn’t stop. Now the switch has been flipped and I’m in super purge and organization mode—feels good!)
