One thing in my life that I truly enjoy is seeing my children happy and smiling. There is one sure way to get them to smile with excitement and that is by surprising them with an unexpected gift. You know a small gift just to brighten up their day. When I see their eyes light up with anticipation and then they begin to jump up and down it just makes me so happy.
Yesterday I had one of these opportunities with my young daughter. I received a personalized plate from one of my favorite writer/artists named PLA. I have previously written about her books and artwork. Well she sent me a really neat looking plate with my daughters name on it and her fabulous artwork.
The plate is called SteamPunk Goth and it is available on her etsy website called The Plate House for only $29.99. She allows you to put a personalized message on the back of the plate so they make great gifts.
So in the afternoon when my daughter arrived home from school I told her that there was a surprise waiting for her in the kitchen. Her eyes lit up and opened wide and she said, “For Me?” I said, “Of course, go check the kitchen table”. She quickly went into the kitchen and on the table she noticed the plate. It took her a second or two to realize that her name was on the plate. She then started jumping up and down saying thank you over and over again. I had to calm her down since she was jumping with the plate in her hand. That is when she noticed the message inscribed on the back of the plate. And shortly thereafter I received a giant hug and kiss. She was so happy that she had a plate with some really cool artwork on it.
Later that evening I let her use it for dinner to put some biscuits on top. I’m not sure I want her using it every night for meals because it looks so good. Even though PLA said it was safe to use for eating, I figure it looks so nice I would rather put it on display in my daughter’s room. But then again I may not have much say in the matter. It is a gift for my daughter so I guess she can decide how to use it.
