This is so precious. The school is awesome for putting together something like this. But considering that Haileybury IS one of the best schools in Melbourne, that’s no surprise.

The letter and finger painting of your are the best. Happy Mum’s Day to you!

that is so cute! I’m going to have it the other way around- at home I’ll be a mum, but at some point I know I’ll become a mom. It’ll be a sad day 😦

Just beautiful Rachel – what a great thing for the school to do. And with such a gorgeous daughter, of course you are proud to be mom AND mum!!!

Adorable! And you know, I hear a lot of mom’s wish for an extra arm or two… You seem quite lucky to have all those fingers though =)

Goodness, this is such a sweet post.

I’ve been thinking about being a mum for a while now, but it’s a dream I have to resurrect and make anew. Reading your blog is definitely making me think of it more.

That post just makes me go ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

I think the only places that say ‘Mom’ are America, and Birmingham in England, where i’m from, so my Mom is definitely a Mom!
