I’m sure you never forget things, right? You are always on top of every special event and have the perfect gift selected for each occasion weeks, even months, in advance. You probably even make your own cards and gift tags and the tissue paper is always perfectly coordinated with the gift bag. That’s you in a nutshell, right?
But, hypothetically speaking, let’s just say you found yourself in Walmart 2 days before school lets out for summer break and you run into another mom and you start chatting there in the cereal aisle and she tells you about the gifts she has picked out for her kids to give their teachers on the last day of school. And as you are looking down at your cart and thinking you probably should have more items in it with the words “flax seed” on them, the reality of what she is saying sinks in.
Teacher gifts! You’ve forgotten about teacher gifts!
