mother's day school craft

Nathan gave me a mother's day card with this little rhyme.

My dirty little fingerprints I’ve left on every wall
And on the drawers and tabletops, I’ve really marked them all
But here are some that won’t rub off, I’m giving them to you
Because I’m thankful to have a mum that’s just like you!

I think the teacher got the design and poem from here (Nathan's card looks remarkably similar to the one in the picture...)

I have to admit that I'm not really into this kind of thing.  I like my kids to give me stuff that reflects them, not some sappy web rhyme that the teacher's printed out  (at age 10!)

But I really liked what Nathan wrote inside the card.  It is so him (and so true).

Dear Mum,

Happy Mother's Day!

And it is Joel's fingerprints on the wall.

From Nathan


  1. Bottle that boy, mass produce him, and sell him. That's just brilliant.

  2. The beauty of cards is you can reverse the fold so it's the inside you always see. And then you can frame it, and keep on laughing!
