Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Homemade Gifts

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Homemade Gifts

Hallmark should hire kids. Corporations pay a pretty penny for writers to come up with witty tags for cards, but they should take note of the things children scribble. My husband spends a ton of time perusing the aisles of stationery stores to find me a fitting card for each occasion. But no matter how perfect the one he picks, it never comes close to stuff our kids create.

For Mother's Day, he bought a two-foot by two-foot card and had them decorate the envelope. Quite the budding artist, my four-year-old daughter expressed her creativity over every last inch of the paper. She drew a flag, a stick of string cheese (we feed this to my brother's dog), a swirly whirl, a number three, a rainbow, my husband's wedding band, grass, snakes, the outline of my son's pinkie finger (he's not one to sit still), and a paramecium. Needless to say I was speechless.

Mothers hope for breakfast in bed or a box of chocolates, but not many get protozoa. What was the best homemade gift you've ever received?
