I usually try to shop for Christmas early every year. I think it gives me more time to enjoy the holidays and enjoy doing special things with my children. Last weekend, my parents were in town to see Sonny Boy in the school play. I, of course, already had shopped for them. I had bought Mom a scarf at Target that I knew matched her coat (my Grandmother, Gigi's, old coat that Mom is now wearing) and was Mom's style. Mom walked in on Friday and the first thing I noticed was her scarf.
"When did you get that scarf, Mom?"
"Oh, just a couple weeks ago. Don't you think it looks good with the coat?"
I paused. "Yes, it does. In fact, it looks exactly like what I would pick for you to wear with the coat."
I still have the receipt. I have to go back to Target on Friday anyway.
