Mothers Day – A kinder surprise.

It is Mothers Day on Sunday here in Australia and yesterday I was invited to a special Mothers Day Afternoon tea at the Bears kinder.

All of the mummies were invited to take our seats and once we were settled in our places, the kinder class filed in and sang to us.

Happy Mothers Day to you
Happy Mothers Day to you
Happy Mothers Day dear mummy
You’re the best, we love you.

It was possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen. I do have photos of them doing it but I didn’t want to post it without permission from all of the mums which would have taken a very long time!

I did get some others pics though.

After being serenaded we were each presented with our Mothers Day gift.
A ‘beautifully’ decorated pot with a little flower, a handmade card, and a decorated picture frame with a picture of mummy in it.

Too cute - although I have just realised that the Bear has given me a very grumpy face, hmmm may be I should stop being a grumpy pants then! )

Please take notice of the decorated pot, for reasons I will explain later!

Once we were presented with our presents we all tucked into our afternoon tea, which was lovingly prepared by the kinder kids.

There were homemade cupcakes which disappeared in seconds so I couldn’t get a proper pic and fairy bread.

imageFor those not in the know, Fairy Bread is an Aussie phenomenon, which consists of white bread, liberally slathered in margarine and covered in sprinkles. For some reason the kids go wild for it here.

Except, that it is for the Bear

This is what he thought!

Probably for the best, judging by what’s in it!  Doesn’t look like he’s a proper Aussie kid just yet.

Remember I told you to hold that thought on the plant pot (you didn’t well pay attention!).

As we were leaving the whole thing which was precariously balanced on my pram fell to the floor and smashed everywhere. I was distraught but the Bear was not so bothered. So the mess was quickly cleaned up and we were given a brand spanking new plant pot to decorate at home.

So we did! As soon as we got home.

Spot the difference!

Phew disaster averted!
