first-day-of-school frezents


every single year,
my mom gives my kids wrapped presents
(frezents)
for the first day of school.

and every single year, my kids ask:
"don't we open our first-day-of-school presents EARLY?"

the answer is simple:
"NO."

this is because
first-day-of-school presents
are for the first day of school.

they are a special treat to look forward to.

maybe the day was rough.
maybe your best friend is in a different class.
maybe it's just sad to say goodbye to summer.

well, one thing is for certain...
when you get home from school, you can open
a special something from grandma.

thanks, grandma.
we ♥ you.
