I know the neighbor a few houses up must love me... his dog leaves little gifts on my lawn all the time. I'm proving RIGHT NOW how much I love my bloggy neighbors by not including a photo!
I would love to reciprocate - but I don't have any pets... and my kids are all a little too old to get away with THAT!
Apparently we have a secret admirer neighbor with a cat as well, because I left the house this morning for a brisk 2 mile walk to (and from) the kids school. (brisk meaning as fast as you can go pushing a stroller uphill) The secret admirer neighbor had their cat deposit a gift on our front stoop. And by stoop I of course mean sidewalk but that just doesn't sound as sophisticated does it?
(note: not OUR dead mouse... but similar, add a reddish ankle & it's the same!)
For the last proof of my greatness - I know I'm a super neighbor because I get lots of "flowers" - picked by sweet 3 year old twins and their 5 year old friend who happens to be my daughter. Every morning on the way home from school (walking briskly of course) we take a few breaks to beautify the lawns of other neighbors and fill my stroller basket with a bouquet!
and look! a bonus gift - a Matey! (as in Marshmallow Mateys... I figure the marshmallows are the yummy part that the kids eat - and the Mateys are the leftover anchor shaped cereals that nobody ever eats... you know, the healthier part...)
