Their first personalized stationery is a big step. In the name of everything that is pop culture, your child has no chance escaping the meaningless humdrum of it all. He or she will endeavor to watch all the senseless shows on cable television and play the most violent video games. Yes, there are ratings to follow and rules parents establish in order to keep their children safe from all that mindless exposure. Unfortunately parents can’t always be watchful and sooner or later they must trust their children to be responsible and independent citizens…who also happen to be huge fans of the Walking Dead.
One day there will be a sign that will signify that your child has finally matured. You must pay close attention. It is a scene that will make you proud and leave you speechless. If you breathe and eat stationery as much as we do you will quickly understand the following situation. Call it wishful thinking. Call it something straight out of the Twilight Zone. When your child prefers the pleasure of writing on their very own personalized notepad, tablet, card or note than seeking the comfort of their smart phone – open a bottle of champagne, throw confetti in the air and blow up some balloons. It’s time to party. This is our rite of passage. What is yours?
