Happy Mother's Day a day late to all you fabulous moms out there. You know who you are :)
My daughter made me flowers out of dryer sheets, twisted together with pipe cleaner stems and dipped in paint for color. This was her teacher's idea. I love it when teachers are moms, too. They always make sure the kids bring something home for Mother's Day. The flowers are so cute, but gah, the smell is overwhelming. I feel like I'm being poisoned! I have had to place them in a plastic bag and put them in a remote part of the house.
Most years I don't want anything for Mother's Day other than handmade cards and a little handmade something or other, but this year I thought I'd ask for an iPhone. I'm completely seduced by that little gadget, and know I would have so much fun playing with one. Realistically I know it's not something I need, and I also knew there was no way my husband would be on board with something so expensive, so my asking for one was a bit of a joke. I also thought it was good for the kids to know that even moms and dads want things they just aren't going to get.
I dropped hints about an iPhone for weeks, and the little kid in me started to think "Wow, what if I really DO get an iPhone for Mother's Day? Wouldn't that be so awesome?" I was actually kind of excited about it! And to my surprise, my family did not disappoint!
Behold my new "eye" phone!
My husband picked up this old phone at a thrift store, and he and the kids had a ball decorating it with googly and hand drawn eyes. They think they are so clever!
