So, although we don't do Mother's Day and Father's Day in this house, Abbey brought this home from childcare:
THIS is what Mother's Day is all about. Sparkly wooden spoons that spread glitter all through the car, over our clothes and the entire house, together with handmade cards with painted hand prints all over them.
Keep your fancy presents and pretty store-bought cards. If Mother's Day is going to exist for me, this is how I want it.
PS - here's an even better idea for a Mother's Day gift, to help others far less fortunate.
