At the dinner table last night, we were discussing what kind of practical stocking stuffers we would hypothetically like to receive. It was Daddy's way of trying to find out what Mommy wanted for the holidays. I was surprised at just how many small things I could come up with!
And then Kerri said: "Slow down Mom, the Tooth Fairy only left me $20.00; can you come up with just one or two things that I can afford?"
I smiled. Because my heart swelled that my kid was thinking of using her cash to buy her Mom a gift. So I told her she did not have to buy me anything, because I already have everything I could ever want.
Life with Kerri has already received the best gift ever: our beautiful daughter Rao Wan Zhen.
