These are the presents my son Bex gave me for Mother’s Day that he made at school (pre-K age 4).
The mason jar is filled with the ingredients for chocolate chip cookies and the handmade little card on it has the recipe. Just add eggs, about a pound of butter and vanilla! Sounds like a present for himself, too.
Of course he painted the outside himself, I think it’s quite jazzy.
The bookmark is a yellow paint print of his own kiddo foot. It reads on the other side: “Every time you read a book, mark it with my little foot!”
The red handmade card has a crayon picture on the front and some colored sequins glued on the construction paper- do you think the picture is of me? I look pretty green and hairy. The inside of the card is a short interview of Bexon, about things I do for him.
M: Makes me lemonade.
O: Opens the door and gives me some Oreos.
T: Takes me to the zoo.
H: Holds me.
E: Every day she lets me go to the mall and a restaurant. (Note from me: We don’t go to a restaurant every day- ha!)
R: Records my T.V. shows.
My Mom’s the greatest because: “She gets me some water and gives me a radio.”
Hmmmm…We don’t have a radio. Maybe he meant Oreo again! I think I win Mother of the Year for pre-diabetics- *hee*
Last night he gave me a tiny lavender flower he picked from the yard and he said it was a “Mother’s Day flower for you, Mommy.” And when he got tired and fussy, I said “It’s Mother’s Day, don’t you want to be sweet to Mommy? It’s my day.”
Bex replied, upset: “Ok, I get it, it’s not MY day, it’s just YOUR day!”
Ha ha ha ha ha. The best gift is my funny little, sweet huggy boy.
