I have seen several times that the dollar store pregnancy tests are the same ones (unbranded or rebranded or whatever) that are sold for much more money in the drug stores. Stock up there!
I can't begin to tell you how proud I am of you. Is that appropriate to say to a peer without sounding ridiculous? Because this is such and accomplishment and I can't think of another way to express that you are impressive and inspiring and diligent and talented.

My MIL has a huge one of these -- I think it was her mother's or MIL's -- and I only knew what it was because of yours. :-)

May I please come next year? I promise I'll only eat my share of the cookies.

"At age 33 Cami Walker was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis" just like me -- I was diagnosed at age 33, too. And I believe in the power of giving. These two things make this woman and her book very appealing to me. Angie, thank you for taking on this challenge and sharing your journey with us. I have found it entirely inspiring. My husband agreed to attend an Imago workshop with me when we were dating and then subsequent sessions with that therapist. We got insight into why we interact the way we do and learned tools to facilitate better communication. Our relationship has so much safety in it now that I still stop to think about how grateful I am to have found such a wonderful partner. That is the nicest thing anyone has done for me.

Elena was going to find out that you and Mike are Santa at some point. It was likely going to be at home. You were never going to be ready for it (unless she were 15 or something). Well, that time is now, she found out at home, and none of you are ready for it. In the grand scheme of things, it's not that big a deal. Really. You feel shitty and she feels shitty but, in the end, you have love and family and (most importantly?) presents. Maybe you could ask her why the gifts would be better if they came from a stranger instead of her parents...? Your daughter is smart and resilient and you are a well-intentioned yet fallible adult, AKA a normal parent. My vote is that you not cave to the idea that you "owe" her more than you planned to buy. It seems flawed to me that her material reward is your punishment (and vice versa).

You're SO WELCOME, Angie! I'm very happy that you like it and honored that you hung it in a place of prominence.
