It’s so much fun when someone works secretly with your kids to make a special gift for you on Mother’s Day. My mom helped Will and Lily make these sweet handprints a few years ago. The kids painted the frames then Mom helped them each make a handprint on a white tile. She attached ribbons to hang the pictures with, too. I don’t remember if she bought the tiles separately and glued them into the frames or if they came in one piece. Maybe she’ll chime in here and let us know.
I also love when the kids make those little “All About My Mom” books at school. They always know to answer that my favorite food is Häagen-Dazs Chocolate-Peanut Butter ice cream and that I like to read. Things get a little dicier when they have to answer how much I weigh (20 pounds was one answer) or what I do. Sometimes I don’t know how to answer that last question, either!
