Yesterday I was spoiled rotten with great gifts from Boyfriend and Mini. Awesome shoes, a funny old school telephone receiver for my iphone (which will enable me to finally chat away with a receiver clutched between my neck and shoulder again and also no more grease schmears on my iphone. And some tea light holders. Every day that allows me to receive gifts in abundance is a fine day in my book!
Also, Mini ‘made’ (because let’s face it, the guy is 2 years old) something at day care. Shamefully, I must admit that I think it’s awful don’t really like it. It’s not Mini’s artistic experiments that I don’t like. But his contribution was just the bare minimum (notice the intense scratching in blue).
What I really don’t like (and excuse me for getting all gender studies on you) is the fact that the symbol for moms is a teapot, which is just so cliché and not at all a symbol for ‘momness’ in any way. It’s seems such a passive symbol to me, while being a mom is anything but passive! Also the little pre-written poem that goes with the teapot makes me throw up in my mouth a little.
So now for my completely unethical question: I’m I supposed to save all this stuff? And for how long? Mini doesn’t even make these things himself as he’s got the motor skills of a 2 year old. I’m more then happy to save his own creations. But this pre-fab stuff just seems wrong to me.
