Ben isn’t the only one who got presents yesterday. Check out the three latest additions to my bedside reading pile: Small Steps for Catholic Moms, The Handbook for Catholic Moms: Nurturing Your Heart, Mind, Body, and Soul, and How Do You Tuck In a Superhero?: And Other Delightful Mysteries of Raising Boys! (I know you will kindly ignore the dust on my dresser. That’s left over from Dom’s installation of our new curtain rod. Cleaning it up is on my to do list today. We won’t discuss how long ago Dom put up said curtain rod.)
Dom’s latest hobby has been rounding up spare change and turning it into Amazon credit. The Coin Star machines at the local supermarket don’t charge fee if you get credit instead of cash, which is no hardship to us. So we had a bit of credit and when I ordered Ben’s presents, I added a few treats I’ve been longing to have for myself.
