My mother is awesome

Awhile back, I told you about our harrowing experience with the law which ended up in handcuffs and a barrage of questions from my poor children.

We’re mostly over it now.  We’ll get to laughing, “AHAHHAAHAHAHHA, you were arrested!” and then a few minutes later it’ll hit us.  “Dude.  You were arrested.”

But we’re mostly over it.

Lance’s birthday is on Monday and Addie’s is a week later, so my mom sent them some birthday gifts.  When Lance opened his, this is what he found:

Looks like an ordinary box.

Let’s open the box:

"Dessert" for now or "Just in case" for later

The note says: "Dessert" for now or "Just in case" for later

Now we open the tissue paper:

It looks like Hostess Cakes taped together.

Let’s remove the tape.

Yes, that's a nail file.

Yes, that's a nail file.

 

Mom, you’re the coolest.

    I’m so glad he liked it (he did, didn’t he?), and the cop birthday card that went with it was so appropriate…too bad I didn’t find the ‘get out of jail free’ card in time to send it with his package. I have it, though, JUST IN CASE. 🙂
