So, I just found out this morning via Beau, via his dad, that it's his moms b-day today!! CRAP. I mean if his dad is going to call and remind us, couldn't he have at least done it yesterday so I would have time to figure out what to get her???? Ugh! Now I know as a daughter-in-law I should have remembered this occasion, and to be honest I do every single year, but I must be off this year b/c I completely forgot. I quickly sent her an email this morning, acting as if I had never forgotten about it. It's much easier to play this kind of thing off in an email :) Beau says "just get her a card." Now ladies, we all know that yes, cards are nice, but most of us would like to have something to open after we read our sweet card, right? Birthdays are a big deal and everyone wants to feel special no matter how old you are! This is where you all come in. Anyone have any ideas for a mid 50's mother-in-law gift? Or is a card really good enough? I don't have time to order a cake either.
