This Sunday my daughter will celebrate her 4th Mother’s Day and I’ll celebrate my 40th! It doesn’t seem like so much time has passed since my girl was a tiny (10 lb 1 oz) baby. Each year has presented new and exciting challenges as a mom. Watching your child open her eyes, then smile, then crawl, then walk, and talk and go to school and date and graduate and go to college and grad school and get a job and date some more and get engaged and get married and have her own children goes by so fast. When I look at her I still see my little baby!
I always loved the handmade gifts my daughter gave me when she was young; the macaroni necklaces, the plaster of paris handprints, the crayon drawings. They are the ones that mean the most to Moms, not the expensive cards and what-not we get from our kids later in life. So this week, I’ll be helping my grandson do his best to create something that she will treasure for the next 40 years. And I’ll try to get my granddaughter to drool on it, to add her own special touch!
I hope you all have a great Mother’s Day!
