Monday Morning Confessional: Shopping for teacher presents—eek!
It hit me this weekend: I have to get gifts for Max's teachers, therapists and babysitters soon. And suddenly, I was dreading December. There are 463 people I need to do something for. OK, it just feels that way. I get a little overwhelmed because I am so deeply grateful to all of them. They do so, so much for Max, they're very much largely responsible for his progress, they're basically saints and Max and I couldn't get by without them.
Last year, plenty of people got the same thing, I'll admit. I cashed in American Express points for Barnes & Noble gift gards. I gave some people Am Ex Gift Cheques, essentially a form of money that come printed on gold paper and, note, are spelled "cheques." I also did the holiday candle thing. I know, I know, people just don't get much more creative than me. On that note, what do you guys do?
