Today's card is a card that I created after hearing about an 'incident' that my friend, Miss Turtle, had recently.
It was Miss Turtle's mother's birthday... so Miss Turtle decided to surprise her mother with a birthday breakfast when her mother got out of the shower. Her mother was so happy and surprised to see the wonderful breakfast that Miss Turtle made for her. She ate her breakfast and they got ready to go to school. As they were preparing to leave, Miss Turtle realized that there was a homework assignment that she forgot about. Panic overtook her. She had not had a late homework to date for the school year. She did not want her record tarnished. She was frantic. My friend, being the very calm and rational mother that she is, told Miss Turtle that it would be ok. It was just one homework assignment.
As they were going to school, they stopped at the red light. Suddenly, from the back seat came an explosive "I'M FREAKING OUT." Her mother, realizing how very important this was for Miss Turtle, explained that she can start working on her homework and that they would sit in the car until she was finished with her homework. This reduced Miss Turtle's "Freaking Out" Level to 'manageable.' She was able to finish her homework and bolt from the car into class before the last bell.

I made this card for Miss Turtle as I could just hear her bellowing "I'M FREAKING OUT!"
I know you are lurking on my blog Miss Turtle... and this message is for you. I know it wasn't a funny situation when you were going through all that. But one day, you will find this card and remember that day... and you'll think to yourself "Wow, that wasn't such a big deal after all." They'll be other days when you'll want to freak out. And it's ok to say "MOM, I'M FREAKING OUT"... but try not to let it upset you too much because one day, you won't even remember what you were freaking out... (unless I made a card about that also).
We all make boo-boos in life: teachers, moms, police officers, and yes, even me!!! (hahahaha). I bet there are a lot of followers here on the blog that have had their share of Freaking Out Days when they were growing up. Those mistakes teach us something. So, don't be afraid to make a mistake. It's not a bad thing
Love, Miss Naomi
PS: Your mom LOVED your breakfast surprise. She talked about it all morning!!!!
