Surprise!
March 10, 2013

mothersdayD: I’ve got something in my book bag that’s a surprise for Mother’s Day on Sunday – so you have NOT got to look in it until I’ve got it out and put it upstairs.

Me: OK.

[Comes into kitchen with a piece of paper in both hands]

D: You can see THIS picture I did – it’s a picture of a blue whale for you.

[D hands me the picture and exits the kitchen]

Me: Great – thanks.

D: You didn’t see the card I had in my other hand, did you?

Me: No.

D: Good. I’m going to hide it in my bedroom.

[Goes upstairs]…

[Comes back downstairs]

D: You know my story CDs?

Me: Yes?

D: I’ve hidded the card with them – don’t look at it will you, when you put a story CD on tonight?

Me: OK – I won’t look.

A lift-the-flap picture – Jan 2013

D: Look – it’s you under the flap, mummy! I didn’t have time to put your hair on though.

Me: That’s lovely. The pattern on the paper looks like giraffe fur.

D: It is – I didn’t know we weren’t supposed to use the giraffe paper, but Mrs V said it was all right.
