Saying Thank You with Flowers



Teacher appreciation week is coming up in April. As a daughter of a teacher I know firsthand how hard teachers work off the clock. I also know how much money they spend on supplies. Teachers get a small spending stipend to spend on materials. The other things they need come out of pocket. I love Noah's teachers. We were really lucky that his teachers are so awesome. I am definitely going to do something special for them.

I used to teach at different daycares. I was also a Montessori preschool teacher before I was a mom. I would occasionally receive gifts from my kids. One of my favorites was the year I received a bouquet of flowers for Mother's Day. The child's mother told me that I was one of his moms. Of course that sweet gesture made me cry. I will definitely get Noah's teachers some flowers from our local florist. I love to send people flowers especially if they are going through a rough time. It is a nice gesture to let someone know you care about them if you can't be there. 

My best friend Brandy's talented daughter was in a play. We were texting each other the night before her daughter made her debut. I mentioned getting her a flower or a bouquet of flowers to give her after her performance.  I used to get a flower after choir concerts and performances  from my mom. Brandy thought I was awesome for coming up with the idea.  I used to love it. I am pretty sure they sold them at the concert.  I was an orphan and a couple other roles in Annie and I even received flowers then. Flowers may not last for forever but the gesture lasts a life time.

When was the last time you received flowers and why?

  7. I think flowers make a wonderful gift. Also - my friends who are teachers often joke about their linen closets full of scented candles and lotions that they've received from students. While always very appreciative of the thought - there's only so much lotion one person can use. :D

  11. My husband got me flowers for Valentine's Day this year, which was a big surprise. It was probably 10 years before that since I received flowers.

  17. I'm really not overly fond of getting flowers myself, I just don't find a lot of enjoyment in them - my Mom though, she LOVES flowers and really appreciates their beauty, so I try and get them for her.
