No, I'm not a month ahead of myself.
Yesterday was Mother's Day here in Jordan, which means I get to celebrate it twice this year!
All day long, random people emailed and texted to wish me a Happy Mother's Day. And my kids all made Mother's Day cards at school, too.
Coincidentally, Connie chose "arts n crafts" as her suggested RoundUp topic. I groaned when I saw that. Seriously, Connie? Couldn't you give me something easy, like "Today's Trip to the Emergency Room," or "Stupid Things I Said in Arabic This Week"?
But it all worked out in the end, because I have some crafty things to show you, after all. Just not mine.
So without further ado, I present.... My Mother's Day cards:
In case you were hoping for a closer look, here's Aidan's card. And no, Twinings Tea is not (yet) a proud sponsor of this blog (though considering the sheer number of their products I consume before noon each day, maybe they should be).
Why tea? I'm glad you asked. Here's the note inside:
("Here's a gift for Mother's Day.
I'll try my best in every way.
But when you get upset with me,
Relax and have a cup of tea.")
Shay went for the more traditional crumpled-tissue-paper-faux-rose design.
And inside, his loving ode to his wonderful mother:
("Happy Mother's Day! I hope Yogi doesn't ruin it!")
Tragically, my husband is out-of-country - so no chocolate or roses or massages for me. Oh, well - there's always another Mother's Day in May.
