The Family Series by mrbrown (at Yahoo!): Have Gift Will Travel
I travel quite a bit for work and each time I do, I have to stress over what to buy home, for the kids, for the wife, for my mom who helps to look after the children (and sometimes the wife helps too, if she's not with me).
It has become such a thing that the first thing my children say when they see me drag my weary, jet-lagged body home from the airport is not "Welcome home, O Head of Our Household! Allow us to massage your tired feet and prepare your milk bath."
No, their first words are usually, "Papa! You are home! What did you buy for us this time?" (cont'd)
