Little Boy K had big plans for Mother’s Day. This is the first year he has shown a real interest in the holiday.
I have been banned from his room for the past three days while he made preparations. I was thrilled that he was noticing Mother’s Day but a little frightened by what could be taking place in his room that required so much secrecy.
This morning I was so very surprised by his thoughfulness and wanted to share the heartfelt works of art I received from him.
He created this banner for me:
The suns are because I love the sunshine.
The recycle symbols are because I love recycling (???)
I was also the proud recipient of my very own paper Sponge Bob:
Little Boy K created one final Mother’s Day masterpiece, full of six-year-old symbolism:
“So what are these over here?” I asked pointing at the three wagon wheel shapes in rainbow colors.
“Those are presents. Do you know what’s in them?” he asks. I can tell he has been waiting for this question.
“No. What’s in them?”
K’s mouth spreads into a huge grin and he starts bobbing his head up and down the way he does when he’s proud of himself. It’s his “Yep! I did that!” look.
“Love. Love is in the presents.”
Yes, little boy, you are very right. Love is all over these presents.
Happy Mother’s Day!
