What would you miss the most?
I keep getting promotions for a Care Package company that supplies goodie boxes for college students. They are nice - but terribly generic. I can do better - I think, but everytime I ask Squirrel what she would like in her Care Package she says "Just send love Mom."
Pssshhh. Okay. But how? And what constitutes love to my child? It's not like I can send a pot of Chicken and Dumplings [but if I could - you know I would :)] I would love to ship the dog - but that's not happening.
So far I have come up with the basics - Homemade cookies, spiced nuts, brownies, muffins, pictures, notes from all of us, ummm.....brick wall ahead! And here is where I am stuck. I know I can throw in toothpaste, shampoo, razors, etc. - and I don't want to send money because that is already in her account. [Yes, I know - nothing says "I love you" like a crisp $20 bill. :)]
I used to get the coolest packages from my big sis' my freshman year at college, but times were different then and what my sis' put in isn't what I think Squirrel would want. Still - I felt like the most popular kid in our 12:05 Linguistics class on Wednesdays. Those were some yummy care packages. :)
What did you get in your care packages that said home? What do you send your kids? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!
