What mom wouldn’t want a break from flowers?
Having the same conversation with friends right after Mother’s Day every year.
“Hi [insert mother’s name here]. How was your Mother’s Day?”
“Same ol’. Same ol’, [insert a friend’s name here]. I got flowers again. I fake like I like them, but sure wish my kid had more imagination.”
Conversations like this must be awful – so wouldn’t it be fun to see if a fresh new Mother’s Day gift could mix it up a bit?
Here’s my contribution to the cause, even though I’ve got a few things to work out for next year.
“Hi [same mother’s name here]. How was your Mother’s Day?”
“The best ever, [same friend’s name here]! Finally, no more flowers. I got a wonderful QR code keepsake. That school communicator son of mine is a genius.”
“Yeah, I’m blessed, no doubt about it.”
“What’s this QR code keepsake all about?”
“Well, it took some effort from my son, let me tell you. He found a website for teachers. Then he had to scan a QR code, access the correct activity sheet, and add and subtract fractions… all for me!”
“Sounds interesting. But you still haven’t told me what this QR code keepsake is about?”
“Well, to be honest, I’m not sure. I don’t really have anything to show for my son’s troubles yet. He said he’s still trying to get the gift details together.”
“Why’s that? Did he have trouble with the QR code generator and the other tech stuff?”
“No, it wasn’t that – it was the fractions that flubbed him up!”
