I swore I would never use it on my kids. HA!!! So much for promises made to yourself when you are 12 years old. Yes, my kids will tell you that I used "the look" on occasion. And I can tell that my eldest grandson experiences "the look" from either mom or dad or both, because I catch him occasionally looking up to "take a reading".
I love how our eyes tell so much. I love looking at pictures to see whether the eyes match the mouth in what's being told in the photo. C'mon...you know what I mean! Smilin' eyes!! And how disturbing is it when the eyes don't match the mouth?
But the reason I tell you this is because I wanted to share with you my experience when I received the best Christmas present a grandma could get. I received a gift card for a date at Make a Messterpiece with my 4 1/2 year old grandson. But it wasn't the gift card that was the best gift. It was this gift bag, handed to me with a special look. A look that told me I was going to L-O-V-E what was inside. A look that exuded confidence in how perfect this gift was for me.
In actuality, I loved that he wrote all of this on the bag. You see, I will scrapbook this. I will take pictures of my date with him, of his Messterpiece, of our time together and I will scrap those pics right next to this bag. And I will melt each time I see it.
I am certain that I am the luckiest grandma in the whole wide world.
