I was relieved when Troy told me to look at the front of the box. I searched the label for a clue leading to something else. Troy came over to me with a huge giddy smile on his face and said, “Look, TWIN PACKS! Your favorite!” I was very polite and grateful for Troy’s gift even though I was thinking; Nutty Bars? Really? These cost what, two dollars? Well…three dollars since it is a big pack.
My dad started shaking his head with his head in his hands and said, “I tried to tell him that he had to get you something a little more exciting than nutty bars, but this is what he wanted to get you!” He had a tone in his voice that implied, what a dumb new dad that doesn’t know what to get his wife for Mother’s Day. I actually was being pretty grateful for the gift and figured it was good that we saved the money. And, I never got a birthday gift from Troy, so this was an improvement from the previous holiday!
After my mom had opened a few gifts from us and my dad, Troy went to get a “card” from Blake. It was really another gift! Blake (Troy) gave me a video camera! It will definitely be my Mother’s Day, Anniversary, and Birthday gift for the year, but I am so excited! It is hard to have such an adorable little boy and not have a video camera to capture all of the exciting moments. I have been using the video setting on our digital camera, but the quality is not that great. Troy really surprised me and thought of such a great gift idea all by himself (minus the nutty bar trick).
