My Parents Are Awesome


parents
cabbage patch kids

...because they filled out my cherished Cabbage Patch Kid adoption certificate with the ridiculous-sowhatwhocares-she-can't-read-anyway names "Bill Stuff" and "Sweaty Betty." Can't blame 'em for thinking I'd manage to destroy the paper long before I'd master phonics, I suppose.

Haha! My mom kept all the notes 'Santa' and the 'Easter Bunny' wrote to us. I can't believe she still has them. I have the best parents too. :)

What a gorgeous souvenir from your childhood! I love it :)

is that your degree...?
more important, do you still have Judy?

Sadly, that vintage Cabbage Patch certificate is probably more valuable in today's economy than any of my degrees. As for Judy, she suffered irreparable cranial damage during an incident with the family dog, Mugsy. Sweaty Betty sent her condolences, as I recall.
