Bon Fete De Mere !

Happy Mother’s Day!!!
Nope, I am not late. It is Mother’s Day here in France. The last sunday of May, a week after everyone else. (and why am I not surprise)

My boy came back from school on Friday with a big brown envelope and insisted that I can only open it on Sunday. It made me laugh just seeing how hard he tried to keep the secret a secret. He succeeded in making me feel sooo anxious and excited. This morning I was finally given the permission to open my little surprise.

It was the loveliest and prettiest gift I ever received! A hand made key chain, one that took hiim 3 days to make in school. He also wrote me a page of Maman, mummy in French and made me a little blue card with a BIG heart and a little french poem in it. It was ooohh so sweet, cute, lovely and pretty, my first surprise hand-made gift from my 4 year old!

I felt so warm and fuzzy inside and it made me smile whole day.
