I have the best job in the world. It's great pay, rewarding, with wonderful benefits! The position is called "mom".
And tonight, I received a bonus! It was a really, really early birthday present! (My birthday isn't until August)! Joy evidently made this for me right after my birthday this past year and had it hidden away in her room. She was cleaning in there and found it and couldn't stand the wait. So, I opened my bonus tonight. And boy was it a good one! Wrapped in tissue paper and inside the box, I found the sweetest note and book she wrote me.
This is how the book reads:
Cover - A Wonderful Mom (with a smiley face, a picture of me with heart stickers)
Pg. 1 - A Wonderful Mom (with a heart drawn on it)
Pg. 2 - A Wonderful Mom By: Joy To: My Wonderful Mom (with a smiley face)
Pg. 3 - There once was a wonderful mom. Her name was Tammy. She had 2 kids, two cats and a lovely
Pg. 4 - husband. It was all she could ever want! Her oldest was Colt. He was 19. And her other child was Joy (otherwise known as Joy Max). She was 9. Her husband was:
Pg. 5 - I think 46 or 47. I don't really remember. Anyways, Tammy was 45. And together, they made the best, happiest family in the world (with a picture of all of us)
Pg. 6 - Tammy loved her family and her family loved her. They - as I said - were the happiest family in the whole, wide world. Anyways, they went everywhere together...they did not like to be apart.
Pg. 7 - Also they were homeschooled....it was awesome. Anyways....that's about it....Sorry it ended so fast. Have a good summer, winter, spring, or fall.

On the back - Joy's wonderful mom is the star of this book. Yay!
Ah.....the perks of motherhood.
