"Mail Caaaall!"

How much fun is it to get mail? Come on be honest! We all love going to the mailbox to find something in there with our name on it. Something really important like a card or letter, package or box of some kind. NOT the ones that are asking us for money in return....the dreaded bills!

Well, it's no different for kids. My two have become like the little "mail police" watching and waiting for that white car with the light on top to stop by and give them something. I swear they sense that it's coming! I hear "Mommy, look!" from Michael only to look up and see nothing. Then just seconds later the mailman is in does he do that?

They have become so aware of the mail system thanks to my best friend EVER Salena. She is just amazing with all the fun and cool things she finds to send them. I mean it's several times a week that there are goodies to be found in that box at the end of the driveway. The gypsy that she is has visited I believe all of the drivable United States and then some. And yes Michael and Mina have lots of things from all over. She is great in that she remembers us and the kids more specifically. Although I don't know how she could forget, I speak to her at least 3 times a day....LOL! The kids look so forward to her visit here and ask endlessly "when is Miss Salena coming back?" I know it's partly because she NEVER arrives empty handed (but come on they are kids) and partly because she is so much fun while she is here. They have to tell her about everything that has happen while she was gone and she is gracious enough to sit and listen. I am grateful for her and all she does especially her obvious love of my two little ones!

Yes, there are even things sent for Mommy and Daddy!

Just a tip: The more you get excited about things in general the more your kids will become not only interested but excited themselves. Even if it is as simple as going to get the mail!

The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.
