Not really a debate...

This isn't really a debate...but thought all you smart debating moms would have some good ideas!! :)
I'm doing a mothers day gift for my daycare parents. I'm having the kids put their handprints on pots and going to put a flower in it. Also thinking of doing handprints on popsicle sticks and put them in with the flower. I need a saying that has something to do with moms and "blooming" or "flowers" or something that goes with a flower in a pot!! :)

I dug out my child's gift from his head start years and this project was a painted hand print as flower with heart cut out of construction paper and glued to center of hand print flower all was on green stem and it says.....
A piece of me
I give to you.
I painted this flower
To say "I Love You".

The heart is you.
The hand is me.
To show we are friends-
The best there can be.

I hope you will save it
And look back someday
At the flower we shared
On your special day.

You can change the words to fit your project. Just an idea... Hope it helps!

Real Mothers don't eat quiche; they don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens and happy kids.

Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of shag carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.

Real Mothers sometimes ask 'Why me?' and get their answer when a voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade...It is marked by the progression of Mama to Mom to Mother...

Laura I had that exact same one but was unable to locate it yesterday! I think this is by far my favorite!

I got this with a cast of my childrens' handprints once.

Sometimes you get discouraged,
because I am so small
And leave my little fingerprints
On furniture and walls.
But everyday I'm growing
And soon will be so tall
That all these little fingerprints
Will be difficult to recall.
So here's a little handprint
That you can put away
So you will know how my fingers looked
On this special day.

Juleah, brought a tear to my eye *sniff*. Love it! I am not a softy at all, but really that is a sweet one.

"This little hand will never grow. It will always stay just as so. When I am grown and far away, this little hand with you will stay."

That was on a hand print thing I gave my mother when I was a small child

This is an awesome idea. I love it! Just thinking of a saying for you on a whim, but what about, 'Mommy, your love is like the sweet scent of flowers' or 'Mommy, I can feel your love bloom everyday!' or 'Mommy, our love is like flowers blooming. It brightens up my day!'
