Happy Mother's Day!
Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her, "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all." Proverbs 31:28-29
The week around Mother's Day is always very busy around here. My Uncle (May 7), TJ (May 9) and my husband (May 14) all have birthdays. It is also Mother's Day in there too. We often have one get together to recognize all the events. The boys and I made these sweet pictures for my mom (for Mother's Day) and my Husband (for his birthday).
Don't worry about extra little smudges or finger prints. They make great bugs if you add wings!
After the pictures dried I convinced the boys to let me take a photo of them together. It is hard to get them in the same shot and looking (this was after 5 attempts). I also added the poem below to the back of the pictures. I got this poem from a craft we did several years ago at an Ontario Early Years Centre with TJ.
Sometimes you get discouraged,
because I am so small
And leave my little fingerprints
On furniture and walls.
But everyday I'm growing
And soon will be so tall
That all these little fingerprints
Will be difficult to recall.
So here's a little handprint
That you can put away
So you will know how my fingers looked
On this special day.
