This Mother's Day was especially touching. It marked the first year that my boys were old enough ~ and interested enough ~ to create gifts and cards for me on their own accord. (You know, as opposed to dad giving them a piece of paper and making them sit down to create a card.) They did get some prompting and inspiration at school ~ which was awesome ~ but both boys took the ideas and ran with them to create unique, heartfelt gifts and experiences that I will treasure always.
I already shared Collin's poem and scavenger hunt; here's Owen's gifts of love:
I love this flower! The stem is his whole finger print. The petals and leaves are his thumb! Cute!
Happy Mother's Day! You are the best mom ever. I love you so much. Mom, you are the (best) mom that I know. Love, Owen
