My Mom is too much… too much goodness. She loves giving little presents.
This big boxed arrived via FedEx; in it were some holiday gifts for a friend’s son, but Mom also stuffed it full of kitchen gadgets she claimed were laying arounf un-used in her kitchen.
And since she visited here last month, she knew a lot of things I lacked.
And I could not help but be reminded of the holidays when I was a kid. When Mom would ask what I wanted for a gift (singular), my little kid brain came up with what I thought was a clever strategy to get more out of the deal– I would ask for a "Big Box Full of a Whole Lotta Little Toys."
And Mom would always deliver- a box full of individually wrapped toy cars, books, puzzles, games… and so once again, here I am in my late forties, and unprompted, she comes through with a BBFWLLT sent from Florida.
I kidded her today about not writing on my blog about her, so sorry Mom- you will be my topic again. I love you, Mom.
The post "BBFWLLT" was originally pushed out of the bottom of a purple jar of Play-Doh at CogDogBlog (http://cogdogblog.com/2010/12/bbfwllt/) on December 21, 2010.
