I told you you would open this on Christmas Eve Mommy, open it open it! he said handing me the big white bag.
It's been under the tree about a week I think. When he brought it home from Kindergarten he was so excited he told me it was for me and that he wanted to wrap it a little extra. He asked that I help him wrap it, but to keep it a secret. (Too cute!) He then realized what he said and told me Daddy would help instead.
I told him that I could wait for tomorrow to open it, but he insisted I open it right then.
Inside, I found this.
The poem is hard to read from the photo I know, but it mentions how at this age fingerprints get left on the walls. Over time they will fade but I can keep this to remember how small his hands were. That combined with the fact that he just turned the big 6 a few days ago and I was teary eyed like you wouldn't believe.
He was so proud. I made it all for you Mommy, I made it all for you.
He hung it up in my room for me after picking out just the right spot.
I will treasure this always.
