    "I grip your hand so I don't fall
    But one day I will be big and tall
    Here is a reminder I was once this small

    Even when I'm grown and gone away
    This helping hand is here to stay
    Happy Mother's Day."

    Obviously I will have to be the one to actually write the card, and then just let her draw and scribble on the cover or whatever.


    Combined a few different ideas from pinterest. This should do.
    Awwwwwww such a lovely thought!

    Absolutely.

    Handmade crafts are very appreciated. I'm not a fan of flowers because they just die. Handwritten MD card is nice, too. I treasure those from my sons forever.

    Perfect. It also shows that you want the child to remain the focus.

    I've never cared for giving flowers, always felt too impersonal. Go to the store, hand them $20-$70 and deliver it home. No real thought needed.

    Wife complained about that one time that she didn't get them often enough, so I started buying them anyway. Always got her other "random" gifts usually pertaining to her hobbies and interests.

    Practical yet special gifts are appreciated, too. There was a lot of thought put behind it which is treasured for life.

    Have the child draw a picture or make a card for mom. It should not be associated with you in any way. Held child sign their name if old enough.
