The Mother’s Day Gift that Keeps on Giving…

Mother's Day, 2008

I hate to admit it, but I actually flinched when I unwrapped this gift from Junior. Someone replaced my sweet baby boy’s face with a mugshot of a deranged convict.  Three years later, this pot sits proudly in my kitchen and his creepy grin never ceases to make me smile. I wonder if Gary Coleman and Andy Dick’s moms receive the same present…

Have an incredible day!
Chester wiped away his tears and looked interested. “A secret? What kind of secret?”

“It’s called the Kissing hand”, she said.

“The Kissing Hand?”, asked Chester. “What’s that?”

“I’ll show you”. Mrs Racoon took Chester’s hand and kissed right in the middle of his palm.

Chester felt his mother’s kiss rush from his hand, up his arm and into his heart.

Mrs Raccon smiled. “Now whenever you feel lonely and need a little loving from home, just press your hand to your cheek and think. “Mommy loves you” and that very kiss will jump to your face and fill you with toasty warm thoughts”.

Chester loved The Kissing Hand. Now he knew his mother’s love would go with him wherever he went.

    Love that Karen. The convicts are still sending those crazy faces as gifts to their moms. That is a serious difference. And oh, boy, thanks for the memories of the Kissing Hand. All my guys went to pre-K through Kindergarten with the kiss.
    See ya!
