Lesson #1: Do Not Take a Four-Year Shopping
Do not take a 4-year shopping for birthday presents lest you want her to give away secrets. Last night, we all went to Olive Garden to celebrate my birthday. Just before we got ready to leave the restaurant, Tim asked Jackie if she wanted to go home so Mommy can open her presents. She immediately proceeded to tell me "I got you candle." Of course, Tim got a good laugh out of that. Little does he know, though, that this past Christmas Jackie told me that she and Ben got me a butterfly necklace after Daddy brought her home from Christmas shopping. So, my birthday was nice. I got the candle from the kids and Tim got me a family Bible. Tim also got me an ice-cream cake which was so delicious.
