Here's the mail, it never fails...

Today I met our new mail carrier because we had a package! (This makes me happy since our previous mail carrier wouldn't deliver anything that wouldn't fit in the mailbox even though there's a laminated note I put on the inside of the mailbox door explaining that I'm always home during the day. Bah.)

It briefly crossed my mind that Laurel might be able to read more than I thought when she jumped up and down repeating "Box from Mahgee and Pop-Pop! Open open!". A second look at the box explained it all -- my little sister addressed it with taped-down FLUORESCENT index cards.

0621_01laureltwigthe meanwhile, she's been distracted since the top of the package was a cloth book Sarah sewed up so I can unpack the parcel at my leisure. I already know it has some small items we left behind when we returned from vacation and the book (Mom told me about that last week when we talked), but peeking in it reveals the fabric markers I inked Laurel's t-shirts with and the cutest dress from Fresh Produce! Despite Himself's and my general habits of not following fashion, Laurel's one well-dressed little kid thanks to her familia.

The wee package from princessbunny arrived today too. I'll get back to her on how it worked for me after I try it.

I know...
A girl who says, "Never waste your time on a man without a package." Oh, wait, she said, "Don't waste your time on a man who isn't packin'," but that's the same thing, isn't it?

So, do we have a buttons and zippers book, yet?

Re: I know...
Depends on how he uses it. *grins*

Both my present and past mail carriers here have been female... and the former wasn't terribly good-looking. She always had a sour look on her face. We've had a run of really nice-looking UPS guys, though -- haven't met one yet here I didn't like!

No buttons and zippers book yet, although the one Mom made for my older sister as a little burrito was at my parents' when we visited. The book my little sister made under Mom's eye was just a simple preprinted panels and batting deal. Laurel loves it so much she even named one of the monsters in it (it's a monster joke book) after her aunt Sarah. Naturally, it was the one with a crayon. (:
