Pasta necklaces! I remember making these when I was a kid! 🙂

When one of my sons was in kindergarten he made a dyed pasta necklace for me for Mother’s Day. I got all dressed up to go out for brunch that day and he looked at me sadly and said, “Aren”t you going to wear your necklace I made, Mama? Don’t you like it?” He only called me Mama at that point when he was sick or feeling insecure. I told him of course I loved it and made some excuse of waiting until the last moment to put it on. It really looked hideous with my clothing. But, if I had any reservations about it, the beam on his face put them to rest. I got a lot of strange looks at the restaurant that day, but I just told him that everyone was noticing his beautiful gift. My little boy turned 32 recently and on Mother’s Day recently told me how proud he was that I actually wore his necklace in public that morning.
I came across your site accidentally. Thanks for the memory!
