Sowing the Seeds of Love

Seven-year-olds' sentiments on Mother's Day can make a Mama's year.

The inscription on Darren's gift of grown-from-seed herbs? "My mother is special because she's the best mom in the universe!" Of course within two hours of receiving the precious planting, a bout of inappropriate behavior earned him a trip to his room for some introspection. Needless to say, the words upon the basil were duly---vociferously---retracted. Think it may be a wise "no take-backs" idea to trace the now windowsill-residing words in Sharpie.
Happy Mother's Day, Mamas!

you know, my husband tried the "it's mothers day, lets be on our best behaviour..." HA. I think he ruined it right there!

It is ok, we are loved, they are kids and sharpies rock.
