Picture it: The family is rushing out the door. The parents need to go into town for important appointments. The kids will be babysat by grandma. As the parents are putting together last-minute details and barely have time to gulp down a hasty breakfast, the kids are working on something top-secret, which the Girl confirms with commands of, “Don’t look! You can’t see it until you’re on your way into the city!”
At last, when we have a chance, we peek inside our gift bag and discover a loving note signed by both parties, and a perfect, domed cup filled with a homemade strawberry yogourt parfait.
Picture it: the kids prepared a bag lunch for the parents. And it’s the perfect way to start an afternoon.
