School. is. out.
Our last week of school is always a busy one with graduation, school parties, exams, and open houses. Of course, that includes finding just the right present for our kids’ teachers.
August 18th, 2011…Daughter: “Mom, I don’t know how I’m going to feel about having a boy for a teacher.”. June 1st, 2012…Daughter: “Mom, Mr. ——- is the best teacher I’ve EVER had!”
So what do you get a boy teacher? Since gift cards for a manicure didn’t seem right and a bouquet of flowers perhaps weren’t the best fit, we went with the classic. Baseball.
We’re fans. Huge fans. I’ve forced that tidbit of information down your throats here, here, and here. Soooo I took a chance that her teacher is too. His thank you card said, “What an awesome gift! I’m going to the game on Saturday!” Mission accomplished.
Let’s pretend you’re wondering what’s in the basket. “So, what’s in the basket”, you ask?
Cracker Jacks (of course)
Detroit Tigers gift card
I was a tad nervous about how it would go, but I think we knocked it out of the park. Yes…pun intended. My husband saw it and said, “I’ll bet that’s the best gift he’s ever gotten!” Dramatic? Perhaps. The reason I’m madly in love with him? Yup.
I’ll be back soon. I’m going to change out of my pajamas now. At 1:07 in the afternoon.
