Last Friday, when Ethan came back from school, he told me he had a Mother’s Day gift for me in a little brown baggy, but I was not allowed to open it until Sunday, because it had to be a surprise. I asked him if I had to keep it in the fridge, but he said no.
However, just to be on the safe side, I asked him to show it to Daddy and then Daddy can decide if it needs to be refrigerated. Well, turns out it did.
Ethan did drop *hints* here and there, so I had more or less guessed what it was…so when I opened the baggy this morning, it wasn’t really a surprise to me,…well, the only surprising thing was the star sprinkles on top of the blueberry muffin. Nevertheless, regardless of whether it was a surprise or not, I was more touched by the effort he put in and the genuine excitement and pride he felt when I told him I LOVED it. It was a gift from the heart, with words that he wrote all by himself and it was really yummy too (I shared it with both Ethan and Hannah)…
Happy Mommy’s Day to me, and to all the lovely mothers out there too! Take the day off if you can…you so deserve it!
