I sure do it was so embarassing. Ok here we go. I was in prep and the teacher told us to bring to school wooden spoon and soap. So I told my grandmother who I lived with at the time and she gave me a spoon the only problem. Well they didnt tell us why we need it and that it had to be new my grandmother gave me the one she used in the kitchen. I could have died on the spot. We made a person by placing the soap on the head of the spoon and got some clear gift wrap and put it over it and tie it with a ribon.

I've had 2 mothers days in my life...both were when we were foster parents a few years ago. The first one the kids all got together and made a big sign to put in the yard with their pictures and handprints on it. The second I got all the housework and meals done for me by the kids and wasn't allowed to lift a finger LOL My younger Brothers used to make me mothers days cards when they were little even though I wasn't their mom...I was like a second mom to them. I still have them tucked away. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

That is so nice of them and so cute (it reminds me of the time my friend gave his mother in law a valentine gift as he didnt know what valentine was). One question did you have to re do everything the next day or did they do a proper job?

Oh no, they did everything great. We really had some good kids. I would have liked to have stayed in it but the caseworkers really ruined it for us. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

we have talked about been foster parents but it wont work. I am very emotional person and I will be very sad when I have to let them go and lets face it some only stay for few days. And with my sons condition it would be hard on him as well.
