I probably should have posted this a bit earlier, but, better late than never, right?
As, I'm sure, we all know, this Sunday is Mother's Day. The day we shower our mom's with love, appreciation and gifts. I must admit, in the last (almost) 27 years, my mom has received some absolute gems. Those from the pre-school era being the best, of course. The most memorable gift that I gave her is a broach made of a sea shell and a plastic pearl - she still has it in her jewelry drawer. Another good one that's stood the test of time, is the beautiful portrait my oldest brother drew of her when he was about 3. The caption below read something like 'I love my mom because she does errands and has red lips'. That same brother, a few years later, gave her a bar of soap with a Cruella de Ville figurine stuck into it. He now admits it was a pretty selfish gift that he anxiously waited to be used up, so he could, finally, have his time with Cruella.
I'm not sure which of my brothers gave her a flower-pot covered in white dusty plaster and about 7 or 8 plastic beads. However, I am certain that it was my youngest brother who, once, gave our mom a block of wood with magic marker scribbled all over it.
Don't worry, as we got older, there were less DIY and more store-bought gifts, as I'm sure, everyone can relate to. Actually, the older I get, the easier it's been to shop for my mom. Now, I just get her stuff I would want, as you can see below.....
So, if you haven't done your shopping yet, here's a few ideas that hopefully you can get overnighted.
Happy Mother's Day to all the mummies out there! Hope you have a relaxing, restful day full of love.
