Fakesgiving, followed by Thanksgiving, followed by two term papers. That’s on top of the normal hectic pace of being a mom with three kids, two dogs, one husband, and a great gig with The Mouse.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
In the whirlwind that was the month of November, I decided to pick one of the busiest weekends to order my Christmas cards. I started, got interrupted, and wandered off. I came back, started again, and had to go feed someone’s hungry. I tried again, loaded a few pictures, typed a word, and loaded a dishwasher.
Such is the life of a mom.
After three days with the website up on my computer in various stages of completion, I finally placed my order for my holiday cards. They turned out so cute, and I was so proud of myself! I was tickled when I got the email from Walgreens, saying my cards were done!
I opened the box, and just beamed with how cute my girls looked in their pictures.
Then I saw it. My daughter’s name was misspelled.
Remember the box on the final page of the order that said “Did you preview your card?” Yeah, I thought I had at some point over the weekend, and I clicked it. But I hadn’t.
Thank goodness it was the kid who’s name is most often misspelled by family and friends, so I doubt anyone would notice if I hadn’t blogged about it. But yeah, there won’t be a mother of the year trophy on my mantle. Again.
I’m just worried now that I also didn’t preview the t-shirt I ordered for Pop-pop…..
