a long awaited day has finally arrived. a day that could not have come any sooner.
mama wanted to get her little guy something special. something he truly wanted and longed for that would make his days a little happier around here. he had been asking for weeks for the trains Annie & Clarabelle for his Thomas table and i ordered them right up off the internet. mission accomplished. so i thought.
we eagerly awaited the mail every day. but days turned into weeks. and for a 3yr old, that seems like an eternity.
i tracked the order, and to my dismay the order originated in no other than CHINA.
if it wasn't for bad luck, i wouldnt have any at all.
we began to get on with our life,we stopped stampeding to the mailbox every time we heard the dog bark, and even quit stalking the mailman.
i hope bum comes out of this unscarred.
but this morning the bell rang and it was a box that needed signed for. from China.
Special Delivery indeed.
the sparkles in his eyes and smile a mile wide lit up the whole room.
and even though it is offically spring, as Bum finished opening his package, he looked out the window and discovered ...snow. it was snowing. big fluffly flakes. i think it is old man winter's final fairwell.
a goodbye kiss.
Bum runs to the window and says: its Christmas mom! and me and Nev laughed.
but this is Chistmas. a package of pure happiness delivered straight to our door, (from CHINA), the kids happy, healthy, together, and to top it off, chinese for lunch. Merry Christmas my sweet little man. Merry chinese christmas.
and as for Annie & Clarabell, i think they are gonna like it here.
