You may recall I've been cleaning out closets and getting rid of extranea (my new favorite, though made-up, word). But Mother's Day is nearly upon us, and I'd like to offer a gift suggestion for anyone who is desperate to buy a gift for a mom like me (or, in fact, for the actual me).
It doesn't require dusting if you use it correctly, storage is minimal, and it always brings a smile (at least when I'm the one receiving it). Answer: Car wash gift certificates. I love these things!
My favorite local car wash sells the certificates in multiples for a lower price than if you buy one at a time. And they come in a little envelope with a cute picture on it. Ready-made gift. I put them in Liberty Ann's side pocket, and anytime she's in need of a bath, she gets it. Each time I use one, I appreciate the giver.
So, do with this suggestion what you will. I hope it'll make a few moms out there happy! As for me, since my son doesn't predictably read the blog, could someone please forward him the url?
