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.
the 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.
