Dr. Phil ;)

As an autism mom, I'm grateful for the funny things in my the fact that Garrett LOVES Dr. Phil.  I guess it's my fault.  When I was pregnant with Caiti, and Garrett was the only one around, I was kind of obsessed with that show, and I would watch it every day.  I think Garrett subconsciously decided he liked Dr. Phil because he's super tall, bald and has a mustache...just like my dad did at the time.  I didn't realize Garrett even was aware of Dr. Phil until I brought home one of his books from the library one day.  He saw the picture on the cover, and said, "That's Dr. Phil!"  I bought Dr. Phil's Family First Book when it came out, and it was coverless after the first day because Garrett carried around the cover with the picture of his "friend" Dr. Phil on the jacket.
Now,  years later, Garrett will surprise me.  We'll be flipping through the channels, and he'll see the Dr. Phil Show on and make us stop and watch it.  Some days, the first thing he says when he wakes up in the morning is, "Watch Dr. Phil?"  :)
This past summer, when I was gone to my family reunion and left Kevin home with the kids, Kevin called to tell me that he was recording Dr. Phil for Garrett.  It made me laugh, and made me think I have a cute husband.
So, how does this relate to today???  Well, I have been super bored this evening. The kids are in bed, but it's Sunday night.  Therefore, football has been on nonstop...snore.  I decided to try and learn something new.  So I went on Pinterest and found a tutorial on how to make gift bows out of magazines.
I found an old 'O' Magazine and made a bow out of a pretty green advertisement and another advertisement that was mostly black.  When I was looking for a third page to make a bow out of, I came upon an advertisement for the Dr. Phil Show.  I got a huge grin when I decided to make this bow to top a future present for Garrett.  :)  The whole time I was putting the bow together I was laughing with glee.  I find it super hilarious, plus, I was smiling because I just know how much Garrett is going to love the bow...maybe even more than the gift.
