Impress Mum

When I was little, I used to spend a lot of time making cards.  I come from a big family, and rather than giving lavish gifts, we drew, stuck and crafted.  I was never particularly skilled in this area, but as an adult, and especially as a parent, I know now the value of such a card.  

A child's gift buying can sometimes leave a lot to be desired.  I asked Dylan what we should buy his grandma for Mother's Day and after a long think, his two ideas were a football or a bunny rabbit, neither of which would go down nearly as well as a card he makes himself.  The thought and the effort shows so much, as does the pride in presenting his Grandma with something he did himself.

Mother's day isn't about presents (although if the bloke is reading this, I can always manage more chocolate!), but it is about showing your mum you care, in whatever way you choose.  Paperchase have created a video about just this, showing that even the hardest men still love their mums.  The #impressmum video below proves that glitter isn't just for children!

Although we will be jetting off to France this Mother's Day, we will still be making sure that the boys' Grandmothers both get a homemade something to show our appreciation and our love for them.

What will you be doing for Mother's Day?
