While I was picking out some extravagant wrappings, I came across this card:
That’s exactly what Panda would look like if we let his hair grow out! EXACTLY!
Inside it says something like, “even when we both have bad hair days.” I sealed it up before I photographed it. Oops.
We have a running joke in our family that Mom and Panda have matching hair. Really curly, can be tamed, instantly springs back to curls the second it gets wet (which includes humid air), and neither of them like to go outside when it’s raining!
Obviously I couldn’t give this card to her, my hair looks great when it rains (no, it doesn’t). The card would absolutely have to come from Panda.
So this year, Panda got my Mom a card and a gift. Spoiler alert! It’s a crossword puzzle book. Which works out great because now they’ll be able to curl up together on the couch on the weekends and keep each other warm while Mom works on crossword puzzles and Panda naps.
