31 Days, Day 5: The Ugly Invitation

Paisley's 2nd birthday is right around the corner and I'm feeling super excited about her party. How is it possible that my little girl is going to be 2?  Tonight after bedtime, I stayed up and made the invitations.
When I asked her what kind of Birthday party she wanted, she said "Ice cream!". I'm totally in love with the whole "Paisley's Ice Cream Shop" theme. It's going to be relatively simple but, still super fun and seriously, who doesn't love an ice cream sundae with loads of fun toppings?

Whenever I make invitations, it always seems like one of them turns out much uglier than the rest. Tonight as I was finishing up, I discovered one more reason why I love my MOM so much: I can always give her the ugly invitation and she never cares.

My mom is one of the most accepting people that I know. She rarely critics anyone and because she's so accepting, it's easy to give her something that's less than perfect and know in my heart that she's not judging.
It isn't that she doesn't deserve the most perfect of everything, because she does but, it's that she sees everything as beautiful. She doesn't critic, she just enjoys.

I hope that when my kids are grown, they'll feel like they can send me the ugly invitation.
