“The best gift you can give is a hug: one size fits all and no one ever minds if you return it”

by teresa

My sister always wants to give you your Christmas present early. She can never wait...excited to see you enjoy your gift.
I always like to wait. Hold out for the big surprise....I never even want a hint.
When I was younger she would tell me all my gifts...brat.
She came over the day before my birthday this week with a gift bag.
"Open your present!", she begged.
I refused and she chased me around the house trying to show it to me.
My birthday was the next day...she couldn't wait one day?
I made her go home so she wouldn't spoil my surprise.
Later that night I went next door for a few minutes.
She brought the bag over to me, obviously excited beyond control for me to see the gift she had chosen. I was in the middle of refusing again when Kaden (my 4yr old niece) walked over to us.
"There's a pwetty bwaclet in that bag for you", she giggled.
OH NO!!!!
The surprise was blown.
I looked at Katy and she looked like she was going to cry.
"Good heavens...give me the dang bag", I said.
It was a pwetty braclet. A very pretty braclet.
The inscription says...Love, Sissy.
I put it on, but Katy looked deflated.
I told her that she get's it.....Kaden is how can she be mad at that?
We all laughed about it....but I guarantee Kaden will now be left out of the loop when it comes to future gift giving.

You should tell the story about how it flew off of your wrist and you had to crawl all over the floor of the Broken Egg trying to find it.
