mothers day

On Monday when I picked Grace up from school they had these cute little wrapped gifts sitting next to their backpacks. I though how sweet. Well Grace picked up the gift and told me it was for me.

Well it was one of those days. Emma was sleepy and ready for another nap and Grace was telling me what they did that day and so I guess I didn't quite hear her teacher when she told me what Grace was holding was breakable. Well I guess I half heard her since I'm writing it here :)

Anyway, so we load up in the car and head home. I open the back door to get the girls out of their car seats and sure enough the cute little wrapped gift fell out of the car and onto the cement garage floor! CRASH! Grace looked up and put her hands over her face and said oh no mommy you broke it! Yup... I did.

The worst part is that it was my Mother's Day gift :(


It was the most precious little mug with her hand print on it.


So I got Emma settled for a nap and told Grace that we will fix it. So I super glued that baby back up. Thankfully it had broken into 5 or 6 big pieces.


While I don't think I could ever drink out of it... I can at least admire it. Maybe I'll put it on my desk and use it to hold pens and pencils.

Isn't it precious. My first real Mother's Day gift....

Aw...I bet that was a terrible feeling. It looks fine, though. That's a really cute idea! I just posted that I need something to do for my Sunday school class for their Mother's Day gifts.

At least you were able to glue it back together for aesthetic purposes...it looks great for having hit the concrete floor.

Oh no! At least you fixed it, and I think it would be perfect on your desk! Really cute!

That is beyond adorable. I would have cried if I received that gift from my baby!
