In a few weeks, Matt will endure his annual trifecta of marital expectations when our anniversary, mother’s day, and my birthday all fall within a two week period. The last couple of years, I’ve helped him out by either telling him exactly what to do, or just buying myself a present, then telling him about it. (This is how I acquired the entire Jane Austen Masterpiece Theater series on DVD — let me know if you need to borrow.) I think he really appreciates being let off the hook.
Something I’d like to have is some kind of “mom” jewelry, and since we just had our “fifth and final”, why not have that be my triple-celebration gift for this year? I’ve looked around a little bit, but am a little undecided and wondered if anyone could make a suggestion. I’m not a huge jewelry wearer, and remember I have five children, which eliminates some possibilities (the names of my kids wouldn’t fit on the above pendant), and makes some others kind of tacky looking (too busy). What do you think? Should I get a ring, a bracelet, a necklace? Do I want something with everyone’s names, or just an initial, or something else?
I know it’s ultimately my choice, but some of you have such great taste, I thought I’d solicit advice.
