post. That was the only gift we gave her and I have to say she was thrilled with it. When I was wrapping it the night before, I started to feel guilty, worrying that she would feel disappointed with just getting a homemade gift. I was wrong. She was so happy and I have never seen her so focused on actually playing with her gift. Usually, as she sits in a huge pile of toys, she goes into overload and doesn't know what to play with first.
Wilton's Wonder Mold Kit and created a spectacular cake (if I must say so myself). It was really fun for me to make too. Probably because I wasn't rushing to get it done in time for a party. Throughout the day, I tried to give her little surprises here and there. Picking her up at school with a bunch of balloons, a manicure/pedicure. Just little surprises sprinkled throughout the day.
As I thought back on the day, I realized how important simple, small gestures are. I think as adults we lose sight of that. We think we have to "go big" to create a lot of impact. But I'm thinking one big gesture, infrequently done, doesn't do half as much as a bunch of little gestures sprinkled liberally into one's life.
