Mother’s Day Gifts

Wednesday, May 16, 2018


When this blog was new, I often shared my children’s school work, and throughout the years I would occasionally share some of their special projects and show their growth in skills. I have not shared much of that sort of thing lately, now that they are older, but they did all make me gifts for Mother’s Day this year that I think are worth showing off! I did already share Zachary’s gift on Friday, but I will include it here again.

From Simon:


Here is what he wrote:

Dear Mommy,
I love you because you let me snuggle with you. You’re special to me because you play with me more than anyone else in the family. Thank you for taking care of me and for giving me dinner all the days you have. You taught me to play by myself. You are really the best mommy in the world.
Love, Simon

The other half is in Hebrew! And this is the cover of the card:


From Zachary:


Here is what the flowers say:

The best adjective that describes my mommy is: awesome.
Mommy, you are as pretty as: the sky.
My favorite Memory with Mommy is: when we went on a cruise to the Bahamas. (Except…our cruise didn’t go to the Bahamas!)
My mommy is really good at: being nice.
Mommy, I just want to say: You are the best Mommy.

The flower that is colored green says in Hebrew: Mommy, I love you very much. Happy Mother’s Day.

From Gabbie:

Gabbie actually picked out and ordered me a present from a shop on Etsy. She gave it to me on Sunday at her dance competition – very appropriate!

If you can’t tell, it’s a key chain which I attached to my bag.

Later that day, Gabbie had her class with a group of girls her age that she has been attending throughout this year. They get together and make a craft, learn something, and eat something. This time, they made Mother’s Day gifts.

The quotes on this are from Eshet Chayil, or Proverbs 31. She said she chose the quotes for me. The first is because I find good deals, the second is because I get up each day and get the kids ready for school, and the third is because the whole family likes me!

I also got these flowers from Dave:


Although we did not do very much on Mother’s Day to celebrate, I felt like everyone acknowledged me, which was very nice! How was your Mother’s Day, if you celebrated?
