What are the best gifts you've ever gotten from parents? 1. I had a child who had had surgery just before school started, I remember pushing him around in a wheelchair. Grandma was so thankful that she brought me flowers and a card. She then tracked the principal down & made him come to my room to see the flowers and the card. (where is the card?!?!?) 2. When I was doing day care, a parent gave me $50 for Christmas.
