    Little Monkey's Care Package

    Advertisements

    So T has been really depressed lately, we hardly talk anymore, something about "it's hard to talk to me now cuz he doesn't want to get me down with the things going on there." He's always been really good about/with my little boy sooooo I thought it would be really cute if Parker sent him a little care package. I've called him "My Little Monkey" ever since he was 3 months old and tried climbing up my shoulder, lol. So I decided to go with a Monkey theme for this box It's kinda dorky and not as creative as the last couple, but that's ok.


    Here are the contents:

    a toothbrush (per request) and a sm travel size thing of toothpaste - I wasn't sure if he needed some so thought I'd stick with the sm size
    2 - 12packs of the cheese snack crackers - 1 is cheese filled and 1 is peanut butter filled
    Tropical Trail Mix
    Gaterade water packets
    Energy Mix water packets
    A handful of granola bars - some are peanut ones and some are peanut crunch
    a container of honey roasted peanuts - they're my favorite
    a bag of dried banana chips
    and a lil over a pound of his favorite spicy beef jerky from our local meat locker (per request)
    oh and a monkey card - it came blank so i added a little note from Parker, well really from me cuz Parker can't talk or write yet, hehe. "His" note said "Thank you for making my mommy so happy! Can't wait for you to get home so we can play. See you soon, Little Monkey (aka Parker)" Then I threw in a little note that said "Monkey see, Monkey do, this Monkey wants to do naughty things to you....Babygirl" lol. I thought it was kinda funny.


    This is what it looked like before I sealed it --- Jam Packed!!!

    ***So I'm waaaaay late on posting this, T actually got it about a week ago, atleast that was when we talked last. He told me he was coming home for his leave soon!!!! then said "thank you" for the care package. I asked if the jerky had gotten there ok and he said it did and it was already gone, he ate most of it in one sitting. lol. that was pretty much the entire conversation

    I'm thinkin about just doing a random snack theme for the next box, hopefully that'll cheer him up before he comes home for a bit....we will see though

    That is an AWESOME care package Nikki!!! Glad to hear that Tony liked it!! And you should definately send out a naughty care package before he comes home for leave, I bet he would appreciate that.
    True strength is being able to hold it all together... when no one would blame you for falling apart.
