Last weekend Harry went to a birthday party (his first of the year). The day before he carefully chose a coloring book for his friend and I added to the present a package of crayons that I had bought earlier during the back to school sales. An hour before the party I hastily wrapped everything and made a quick card (I have oodles of card stock so I tend to make my own cards for things like this). Harry had a fun time, mom not so much (it was super loud).
A few days later I cleared off a pile of junk that was on a side table and noticed a bag with a brand new coloring book in it. Yeah, I had grabbed an old Sesame Street coloring book on accident and wrapped that instead of the new un colored Sesame Street coloring book. I can't even make it right and give the poor little girl the new coloring book because she had moved and I don't have the new address.
It is upon you, my dear readers to help me not feel so bad. Please tell me that I am not the only frazzled mother that has done something like that.
