Little kids make me happy. :)
I like making little kids happy.
My parents and I receive a ton of address labels from different charity organizations. We receive so many, that it would take multiple lifetimes for us to ever be able to use them all up. The thing is, the address labels are just so cute sometimes, that we just cannot bring ourselves to throw them out. So over the years, we've been keeping them, and using them to label meat packages (lamb and beef look the same when frozen).
Problem is, even with us using the labels for meat, we still don't use nearly as much as we get (never mind the ones we've saved up over the years). So mom and I decided to cut out the address parts of each label, keep the cute part, and save them for when little kids come over. Having a million stickers would be an awesome way to occupy little kids time.
So, well, we started with the stickers.
Then a few weeks later one of the guys I work with told me how his daughter started crying one day because she didn't get any mail, when everyone else in the family did.
So I decided, that I'll start mailing letters to little kids with stickers in them.
So I did just that for the little girl (and to this other kid I used to babysit for), and both of them were soooo happy. The girl's mother was very happy. :).
So I'm going to send mail for Chanukah (Gd willingly I'll remember- I forgot on the girl's birthday :'( ). And I think it would be great if everyone thought of making little kids happy. So I shared the way I do it :).
I can't help it, they're just soooo cute!
