There were several times that I joked that the kids should get me some extra hands for Christmas. Wouldn't it be perfect if I just had a few more hands? That would make everything so much simpler!
On Christmas morning, I opened up this gift from Heather:
I admit that I didn't know what it was at first and had to carefully ask her about it. Heather said, "It's an extra hand, Mom. Remember how you said you wished you had some extra hands?"
I thought that was the most thoughtful gift ever! What a sweetheart to remember something that I had asked for, even if in a joking way!
