It turns out it practically does take a village to take care of a baby, (Piper has seven teachers!) so though I wanted to get them all a special gift I knew I had to rein it in a little or we wouldn't be able to afford daycare anymore. I bring in sweet treats every once a while but I wanted to do something different. And who doesn't want a plant? Especially when Spring is springing. And if there's one thing we all know the teachers love it's a heartfelt pun. (at least that's what Pinterest taught me).
So I settled on "thyme", got some seed packets for each teacher, put them in some plantable pots, added some fun tissue paper, wrapped a ribbon around them, and added homemade tags. (Piper helped with the coloring.)
Nothing too elaborate or fancy, but hopefully the staff appreciates the thought as much as I appreciate them.
Being working mom isn't easy (hoo boy- another post for another day… Probably a lot more posts for a lot more days.) But I'm so thankful for these ladies who "mom" my baby when I can't.
We will miss them, but good news! Baby number two is just around the corner.... Soon we'll have about a Bowden in every classroom! And then I'll owe them something really nice.
