When I picked my little girl up from school she came out with her hands behind her back and a furtive sort of look on her face. It was cute because she was the only one in her class to be hiding her creations, all her classmates had them in full view - so I had some sort of idea what delights awaited me.
She is as impatient as me and could not wait to show me my card - which I love. She picked my favourite colour and did her writing so neat!
Such a simple yet beautiful card and one I can display for a long time!
But that wasn't all - she had also been baking.
I am a major chocoholic and she has made some choc truffles with her class and she told that whilst making them she sneaked to the loo to lick some chocolate mixture off her hands. I asked "Why in the toilet?" and she very cleverly replied "Cos Max got told off for eating it off his hands and I didn't want to get into trouble!"
I love these little conversations we have that reveal some of her quirks but as a 'responsible'mum I did advise that perhaps the loo wasn't the best place to be testing the mixture!
But I am so pleased with her and really happy with the effort she has shown - despite needing the loo break!!
And she says there are still loads of surprises to come yet ....
