I miss the Mother's Days when my own kids were just that...kids who poured every bit of their love into handmade gifts. I loved those quirky, colorful, funky, and decidely unprofessional gifts. Cost factor: minimal. Love factor, pride, and sense of self accomplishment: over the top!
Yesterday, Dom and I found ourselves in a world of "cheap art supplies," happily creating egg carton flowers. A bit of snipping with the scissors, washable paint (Thank you, Lord!), pom poms, and glittery pipe cleaners. A recycled creamer container, stripped of its plastic label, and covered with washi tape became a vase.
End result? One proud happy young man!
Happy Mama's Day to all of you...I really do believe that so many of us "mother" someone each day.
