It is true what they say – that some of the best things in life are free. This past weekend, I was delighted to unwrap handmade Mother’s Day gifts from all three of my sweeties.
From my son, I received a hand painted pot with a beautiful flower planted inside. It is being displayed outside on our steps, and I haven’t killed it yet!
From my oldest daughter, I received pottery molded with her small fingers and painted in pastel colors. She made this one-of-a-kind keepsake especially for me during art class and told me I could use it for a plant, coins, or “whatever I want.” Love it.
My four year old daughter drew a beautiful picture of me and her and shared a glimpse of how she views me by answering a short questionnaire entitled “ALL ABOUT MY MOM.”
She said my favorite color is green. Yes it is, Lovie.
She thinks my favorite food is steak. Hmmm, I do enjoy a good steak but would rather eat tons of other foods including french fries, ice cream, shrimp cocktail, even chicken to name a few.
When asked what I like to do, she said that I like to pick her up from school. Yes, that’s usually the highlight of my day!
My mom looks prettiest when she gets married. What is it about little girls and brides?
My mom always forgets to get our backpacks, she said. This one stumped me because I can’t remember a time when I forgot their backpacks but I must have. I would have answered this question with a simple she always forgets EVERYTHING!
Her favorite thing to do with me is go to the playground. I’m feeling a little guilty after reading this since we haven’t gone to the playground recently so we will make a point to go this weekend.
And if you’re wondering what she loves most about me? It’s that I look pretty. Guess I should start teaching the beauty is only skin deep lesson soon but for now, I will accept the compliment.
I just love all of my gifts, thank you kids!
What did your babes give you for Mother’s Day? Hope your gifts made you smile as much as mine did.
