Thank you, Lesley!!!
Your package with the soaker arrived yesterday - thanks so much! The colour is so pretty (fyi for everyone else - Lesley has been experimenting with Kool-Aid dying!)! I haven't tried it on him yet, but like you said, it's bigger, which is GREAT - it will fit him a bit later on. I'll definitely post a photo!
And your note was so sweet. I love our little community here.
I have expressed numerous times to my dh, mom, etc how ok, we're online people sharing a board, but really - there are true friendships being built. People in real life are astonished sometimes when they hear about the sweet gifts and cards I receive (have you checked out the photos of Marcus with his monkey and soaker from Korin, my friend from ttc?). And, of course, the fact that I have even begun creating friendships IRL with a couple of my mdc contacts. It's a special thing.
Wouldn't it be cool if more of us lived in closer proximity to each other?
