This is my second Mother’s Day. Last year on this day, H was not even a month old, while I was still recovering and learning to be a mommy. Papa M had arranged for a small celebration at home for his mom and his daughter’s mom 🙂 Thanks for the yummy cake, M.

This year, I have something else on mind. Since, H is grown up enough to join in some fun, I have planned to put Papa M & H to work and make something for me. Yes, I want to feel special :D.

To make Papa M’s life easier, here’s a list of 9 activities that he can do with H for mommy. Even you can take cues from this one and do something special with your little one this Mother’s Day…

4. Frame your little one’s masterpiece
Hiya held a pen in her hand when she was 11 months old. She randomly scribbled on a paper but that piece is no less than a masterpiece for me. If you also think the same for your baby’s art, this activity is perfect for you.
