Cooper is a big fan of the present.
Big presents, little presents.....he's not picky. He loves them all.
He didn't realize that being an usher comes with a thank you in the form of such a gift.
He decided that he wanted to wait to open it- so with a hug, Wade headed to the Rehearsal Dinner with his groomsmen.
And then couldn't stand it anymore and opened the card.
I love his concentration, and that he's old enough to read "grown up" handwriting.
If you had given that little kid a million dollars, he couldn't have been more thrilled. When he opened the bag, the 1st thing he found was a T3rvis Tumbler that says "Don't Mess with Texas".
Perfect! For some reason, he thinks that slogan is awesome. He begged me for a shirt with those words and actually won the "Sharpest Dressed" at camp while wearing it. (clearly, the stakes were high!)
And then..stop the madness.........could it be????
Oh my word......it is...
A genuine basketball jersey. Could anything be better??
Why yes. Yes it could.
The last words that Wade said to me before he walked across the street were-
"Tell him he can wear it tonight....and tomorrow night".
Nana and Aunt Leslie watched the whole exchange and knew full well how happy he was-
He may as well have done cartwheels!
Me, not so much-
At least he's happy.
Tune in tomorrow to see the jersey in all it's glory at the WEDDING.
