Joey was so excited to give me the gift he made at school. Of course I smiled when I opened it, and thanked him, and loved that he wrote "I love you mom very much" on the letter C. I appreciated the irony that I had spent four hours die-cutting these letters out of cardboard for his teacher. But, this is just not my style.
