Little Mo's daffodils.

 Daffodils- ©Little Mo! 
Evening Peeps!!!
So I wanted to share with you Little Mo's Daffodils. I have to tell you that Scott and I are so very,very proud of this little guy. He struggles with his nerves sooo much and last nights parents evening was just so lovely for us.

Mo decided this morning that he wanted to make my mum a get well card using his Daffodils writing so when I picked him up tonight and his normal teacher wasn't there he was a little worried he couldn't use it, so I asked the classroom TA and she was so lovely, she said yes right away and we sat on the bench in the sun waiting for her to finish her jobs. Mo was so excited. More proud mummy moments were to come when Mo's headteacher came to bring Mo's writing as it was still in her office from when he went to see her this afternoon to receive his Head Teachers Award and merit stickers (oh my, you should of seen his little beaming face when he came out the doors to me tonight with all his special stickers, magic!) She thought his Daffodils writing was very special.
Mo's class TA did us a few copies which was so very kind. We are so blessed and very lucky to have Mo going to such a beautiful and caring school team each day.

When we got home Mo got busy on his card for nannie, trimming, inking edges and best of all, using mummy's ATG gun!!! He put his little bit of writing on first, then he drew his daffodil stems in a green glaze pen. he made his little daffodils with my SU boho flowers punch and I  have to be honest and say I will be totally nabbing this idea!! they are very cute!!!!! I love the way his little mind chugs things through like 
"they can't be flat like squished dry ones mumma, they have to be standy uppy ones"
as he shaped the centres around my rubber tipped paper picker!!! CUTE!!!!

 So for those of you who are looking at it and wondering what some of it says, I will translate for you!!

'Daffodils dancing like ballerina's
twisting all day long nice
to see as yellow as the bright
sun heads like stars.
Daffodils swing around in the
nice breeze.
The daffodil stem is as green as 
a leaf'

Ok, so I am teary!! I am a very daft mummy but I am so super happy and blessed. And of course. Mo wanted me to take a piccy of the special stickers on his school tank top, the card and him for you all to see!!
Thank you so much for bearing with me and sharing in my joy of this special little guy. I love his smile so much.

Morning Peeps!!

How are you all today? I am a very proud mummy today. Last night was Little Mo's parents evening and I was so nervous about it! we sat down in the hall to wait for our appointment and Mo's head teacher came to see us to say hello and how well Mo is doing this year!! that was lovely and then we went in to see his teacher and she said he is doing really really well too!! I cannot tell you how relieved I am as he still gets so nervous about going to school and change but I love knowing he is happy once he gets there. The only thing he needs to work on is his fine motor control when he is writing, he is left handed so his hand covers up what he has written and he struggles with that.
She showed us an absolutely beautiful poem Mo had written yesterday about daffodils. I am going to ask for a copy of it today so I can show you it because she was so very proud of it.

It was just such a special proud beaming mummy and daddy moment. We had gotten him a new scooter in the sales put away for easter ( isn't keen on easter eggs!) so we decided to give him that as a reward. He loves to be outside and he was so excited he was out as soon as he had opened it last night trying it out!!

Any whoo!! enough mummy waffles!! onto my cute card!! a friend at work asked me if I could make her a birthday card to give to her boyfriend (...I know!! get me!!another manly one!!!!!!) 
I loved kathy's new sketch over on the sketch file  and here it is, isn't it awesome? I love the layers...though I turned mine into hearts!! If you click on the piccy it will take you straight to the sketch file blog :)
I have 2 favourite parts on this card!! of course one of them has to be that cute, cute, cute little footballer and the other one is the little green field heart with the centre spot on it!! I love my new Big shot!!!! I had so much fun cutting the little hearts out!!
I dug out some 'manly' brown and white checked ribbon and tied a dinky little bow to snuggle the heart!! and a few doodled kisses in some of the hearts too.....:)
