Hugs are everything, right?
The girls got a trampoline for Christmas and they experienced what many children before them have also known: the boxes that hold gifts are oftentimes just as great as the actual gift. The girls decided to use the boxes to create a booth on our patio.
With zero input from me, they made it.
I figured it would be some sort of stand to sell something.
It was a deary January day in Cabo and I was sitting at the other end of the patio, watching the construction.
It would appear that my two daughters who are just a year and a half apart in age, decided that partnering was the way to go. They put up a sign.
And got to business.
Giving away hugs. Pardon me, “HUGS!”
I had nothing to do with this process, and I smiled as it all unraveled.
That top box? A TV screen playing a futbol game.
There’s also a tip jar, a menu of Hugs offered, beverages and more.
Here’s a close up of the futbol “flat screen” TV.
I believe it was “Team Beans” Vs. “Team Cotton Candy.” It’s unclear who won.
I’m pretty sure this is my favorite. Kindly read the different types of hugs offered:
I had to ask what exactly a “mom” hug was.
It’s a slow hug where the embracer slowly rubs the back of the embracee, “like a Mom would.”
And a “dude hug” is a quick, business-like bro hug followed by several whole-hand back slaps. “Like how dudes hug.”
Tell me you noticed the “Free Conversations –> With Vivi” menu offering, as well.
“Lila, why are the free conversations only with Vivi?”
“Because she talks all the time and she’s good at it.”
I took them up on the long mom hug (it was as described) and also the free conversation with Vivi. She asked me many questions, “How are you today? How was your day? Are you happy? What do you do to be happy?”
I felt like it was a solid free conversation.
I also got a hand massage that I feel was a bit too short in duration. But, it was free.
I also looked at a magazine, ate a mandarin and got some water.
Overall, I felt like my HUGS! experience was a 9 out of 10. (I still need to rate it on TripAdvisor.)
As you can see above, tips were appreciated.
And below you can see the heart of the operation: chairs for both girls and a bowl of fruit.
They also offered magazines and water. And veggies and fruit and coloring books.
A side view…
They added ON to the back part of the HUGS! Stand, too. Because, why not?
More is always better.
I think these sweet girls were on to something.
Free hugs are where it’s at.
Craig even got a discount card.
50% off of “everithin” in Enero (January) 2018.
This would be a deal, except it’s apparently expired by one year.
I believe this is Vivi’s current legal signature.
And this is how it ended up.
Complete with Christmas lights.
It was sweet.
And I loved that they worked together.
And, I have to say, the MOM hugs were the best.
