Max's Good Mail

Last week I got the cutest thing in the mail from Max! I'm always excited when I get a big manila envelope in the mail, but was very surprised to see that it was good mail from Max. What could Max possibly be sending me? When I opened it, I first noticed that he wrote me a note on some note paper that he designed and created in Photoshop and it was very cool. His note said: 'Hi Jessie! This is a present for Fiona. I saw this at Target and thought you would like it. Love you! Say hi to Timm and Bella for me! -Max' and as you can see it was fashionably wrapped as well.
And of course, they were super cute! A set of three flannel receiving blankets that anyone would envy. There are several things about this good mail that impress and please me, in no particular order: That Max at 13 years old, saw these and could appreciate how cool they were. That he then thought of me and Fiona, and thought to buy them. That he actually did buy them with his own limited money for no occasion other than 'because'. That he wrapped it, digitally created his own paper and had his mom speedily send it. Max has always been unique- his own person in his own right and never typical or predictable. He was the first child that made me think maybe, just maybe I could want a child of my own someday. At 13 he still impresses me with his sensitivity, intelligence, taste, individuality, and kindness. As he gets older he's more and more fun to interact with as an adult and is never ordinary. Thanks Max! I'll tell baby Fiona about this later...

I was pretty thrilled that he would pick out something cool for you and buy it with his own money. He's a keeper.

Awesome! How thoughtful of him.

The blankets are so adorable. Max definitely has good taste. (It must run in the family.)
