Surprise Present For Daddy

Today, I thought it would be lovely to surprise Jay with a hand made present from me and the girls. Now, I am terrible at anything arty or crafty, but I decided to give it my best shot!
I knew we had a canvass in the garage that had been sat there for over a year unused, and some poster paints left over from a (badly made) halloween costume a few years ago. I thought it would be really special to make footprints on the canvass and write a cute poem next to them. In my head it sounded impossible to mess up! Well, three pink footed messy people later, our footprints were done. I found a poem online and wrote it as neatly as I could, one handed with a baby hanging off my boob.
Jay really liked the painting that we made, and I might have even seen a tear in his eye….
