The boy loves his teacher: Mme Marian. Usually, I (oh lazy one) would just buy a gift certificate at the end of the school year and have him make his own card. This year we decided that this young, amazing, kindergarten teacher needed something with a more personal touch. With that in mind, Lo recorded and compiled a music CD of the boy singing some of the songs he had learned in class this year. He also let the boy invent one of his own. That was… well… quick. The song came out of his little head and mouth fully formed and ready for release! Perfect.
For my part, I used some of my cotton yarn stash and crocheted 2 hot pads for Mme Marian. If you recall, I had started them here with much greater intentions… In the end, this is what I came up with. I wrapped them with one of my toilet paper roll flower brooch/ornaments.
