Out of the mouths of Babes
I don't have any grandchildren but I do have five very special children in my life.
Three in Arkansas and two in Raleigh.
All five children belong to former graduate students I met while I was working at N. C. State University. I always send these five children birthday gifts.
In April, my young friend Miss A had a birthday. I wanted to send her something different.
She has a very special doll named Sunshine. Sunshine has been repaired numerous times by Miss A's mom. Knowing Miss A loves dolls and stuffies, I decided to send her this adorable Teddy Bear stuffed with cookies. The bear has a Velcro closer on his back.
The packages was scheduled to arrive on one of the days we were having monsoons. I was worried it would get soaked. Miss A's mom sent me an email letting me know the package arrived safely and dry. We were both stunned to see that United Parcel Service aka UPS put the package in a plastic bag to keep it dry. WTG UPS
So the funny thing was Miss A's reaction when she saw the bear...the first words our of her mouth were,
"Look mom a bear that poops cookies"!!!
I just love the honesty of children...I thought it was hilarious!!
Miss A's mom is very special to me. I met her when she came to NCSU at age 18. She was a student helper in the physics department. To date, I have known her over 1/2 her life.
She always takes the time to meet me for lunch every few months!! She is a wife, mom to two children and 2 dogs and is a CPA. Add to all this she has a very successful Esty shop. Did I mention she is very organized?!
