Now that National Teacher Appreciation Week has rolled around, my little craft insecurity comes out in full force! I mean, have you seen all the cute ideas on Pinterest!?! Ugh!
So what is a mom (who truly appreciates everything her son's teachers do every single day) supposed to do? Oh I know! I asked my kid. Here is a snippet of our conversation:
Me "T, what do you want to get your teachers as a thank you present?"
T "gum. They really like gum a lot."
Me "Really? Again, you want to get them gum, AGAIN?"
T "Mommy, they really like it."
Me "Ok, what else do they like?"
Me "Your teachers like chicken? Have you ever seen them eat chicken?"
T "oh yeah."
Rather than running out to Chick-fil-a, KFC, Zaxby's, or grabbing a couple of rotisserries, I went with my teacher instinct and here is what we did!
|cute, white box from Target's Dollar Spot, decorated with love (and Sharpies!)|
|more gum than any 3 women need, along with Target gift cards, handpicked by T!|
|My favorite part-pictures of his teachers.|
On this teacher appreciation week, and every other day too, from one teacher to another, THANK YOU!
