Mother's Day is nearly here in the UK, I know it is later in the year in the US but this calendar has been all over our news and I thought I would share it because it is such a brilliant idea and would make a great mother's day gift.

Two young men and their Dad got hold of some childhood photographs and recreated them as adults, then made a calendar with both sets of photographs for their mother. She apparently laughed till she pee'd herself but as she told an interviewer, she is menopausal so it was to be expected really!

Here are the pics, even if you don't fancy doing this yourself, the calendar is so sweet.

This is a great idea! My DH's cousins did this for their parents a few years ago. In the "THEN" photo, the three boys were in matching green button-down shirts and red plaid pants. One of them works for Nickelodeon as an adult, and got a co-worker who is a costumer to re-create the outfits. Everyone in the family loved it!

HA,HA,HA,HA,HA,HA! I was laughing so hard I was snorting, (better than wetting myself I suppose, but rather unladylike). Loved that, thanks for the belly laughs Daisy dear.

How cool. My boys did something like this when they were all together here last year. It was a picture of them as little boys in front of the fireplace at Christmastime. It was funny watching them try to get the same expressions on their faces.
