Mystery Solved!

Read the tale of The Mysterious Vanishing Gift which I posted a few days ago.

And now for the exciting resolution!

My sister (who is mutual friends with these folks) delivered their gift to me today. I was shocked when she nonchalantly mentioned who it was from, and related the entire unsolved mystery to her before she explained: they thought we had a baby girl. Oops!

My sister encouraged them to sneak the gift away during the party with the intention to replace it with a more appropriate choice. While I understand how my friends may have felt embarrassed, it would have probably been less awkward to just express that feeling at the time, don't you agree?  We would have all had a good laugh about it, and the entire debacle would have never been.

Just in case my lovely friends ever read this stuff, allow me to state for the record that their generosity and thoughtfulness is most appreciated, and their effort to attend our gathering and celebrate with us was the best gift of all. As far as the gender error, it is completely understandable and forgivable!

I am just so thankful to have the mystery solved!

Well, it's not a very exciting resolution, but it is a resolution. I hadn't considered that possibility! I'm glad you found it out after all.

The original story and even the resolution have me chuckling. Thanks for sharing!

Totally off topic, but I couldn't figure out how else to contact you...found your site while researching ACL surgery on dogs. Our 3 y.o. Newfie needs surgery and we can't afford $4,000...would you still recommend Dr. Goza? We are in Portland and are desperate for options...thank you!!

Yes I would! As a matter of fact, our husky Kezia just had to have the ACL on her other leg repaired a few weeks ago :( and we returned to Dr. Goza. This time we knew exactly where to go and it was still only $300. I hope all goes well with your pup!
