“I WISHED FOR YOU”
I remember asking several people last year, “Am I able to celebrate Mother’s Day if I am pregnant?” Opinions began pouring in and I ultimately decided to celebrate with my immediate family by announcing our baby’s gender. I went for a simple approach and to be honest, it was due to a straight up craving. A vanilla cake layered with buttercream icing filled with chocolate malt balls. This is what my pregnancy dreams were made of people!
The concept of the reveal was also simple. Cut into the cake and if pink candies poured out, it was a girl. If blue candies poured out, it was a boy. There was one minor plot twist. I already knew what I was having. I actually received the phone call with the blood work results. I kept the secret for only a week, but it was so special to have that time with my soon to be son.
Mushiness set aside this painting craft is PERFECT for Mother’s Day! This is a hands on activity and a great way to explore textures with your baby or toddler!
