Put Your Hand in My Hand

I love the boys' finger prints that are left displayed on the windows, the mirrors, or on the freshly cleaned appliances.
Really it doesn't bother me.
It would have years ago when I was really anal.
That is why I am grateful that parenthood didn't come to me as quickly as I wanted it to.
Had it come than I know that I would have been nagging at them and frantically cleaning behind them!
But now, I'll purposely not clean the mirror that is covered with hand prints.
I think it's just so darn cute.
I 'inked' the boys' hands and got them framed.
I hope that I"ll be able to see these little fingers grow to become strong hands of men.
Do you think they'll let me hold their hands once they are older? Probably not.
But I'll have their love in my heart and their framed hand prints.

Those are so cute! I did all my kids foot prints last fall and loved the results. Maybe this year I'll try the hands.

Those are adorable. I have taken a picture of a particularly noticeable handprint on the wall before I wipe it off because I know that someday, I will miss the smudges on the walls! (hopefully by then I'll have grandchildren and they can leave behind their prints for me)

Anyway, great idea and very cute!

I intended to take my kids footprints at each birhtday but somehow tht was put off and put off...sad. I think it's time to randomly take their footprints and handprints for their scrapbooks!
