I have the best clients ever.

Today when I got home from my meeting with a new client, there was a package by the front door. I knew I hadn’t ordered anything lately… who could it be from?

The return address was one of my clients who I did a site for last summer. Incidentally, the day of my first meeting with them was also the morning I confirmed with a second test that I was, in fact, pregnant with Maggie. Well, they sent us presents!!!! They bought 2 adorable outfits for Maggie at Old Navy, along with baby shoes (which, who doesn’t agree that baby shoes are the freaking cutest thing ever made?!?) I was shocked, I couldn’t believe they would be so thoughtful to send a gift, especially since I haven’t really done any work for them since last winter.

They also sent me back my Grove City College travel mug that I left there that day. Apparently my pregnancy brain started REALLY early. I thought I’d never see it again!

Seriously, some days? I want to stab some of my clients in the eyes with pencils. Other days? They rock my world.

    That’s so nice of them! Too bad not everyone is that nice.

  3. For me, mostly the stabbing. Some clients try to send me chocolate at Christmas but it doesn’t get them much. Now if they sent a baby gift……

  6. If they just wear protective glasses, then it’s all good.
