Happy Mother’s Day!

8 05 2009

From the card my son brought home for me from day care. I love it when she does these. Seth’s answers in quotes, my thoughts in parentheses:

What is your mom’s name? “Anna” (good start)

What does she do? “Usually she watches TV” (Huh? Rarely when he’s awake. Only when I’m sick.)

How old is she? “She never told me but maybe I think she’s 6 inches tall” (giggle)

How does Daddy call Mom? “Anna!”

What is her favorite color? “purple & pink” (ummm… more like my least favorite – I think this is gender stereotypes already)

What is her favorite food? “Eggs” (well, not my favorite but they are good)

What is her favorite movie or TV show? “commercials” (according to he teacher he didn’t even need to think about this one, interesting.)

How many brothers and sisters does she have? “Auntie Ellie and her mom & dad” (Sorry L!)

Where does she like to take you for fun? “the playground”

What message doyou want to send to her for Mother’s Day? “I love you!” (Sigh.)

Even better? He drew me this picture. The first with a person!!!! Well, technically it’s a monster. Very appropriate don’t you think? Unfortunately, it was really hard to photograph. That green scribble that looks yellow? Well, that’s a green slime blob. Also appropriate.

And just in case you were wondering where I’ve been – my computer died. Getting to know the new one. 

I missed you all! Happy Mother’s Day!

I just hope you could pull yourself away from the tv and all your favorite commercials to give that boy a hug! What a sweet and funny tribute to you!

The question and answer sessions always crack me up. My daughter brought home paper flowers from preschool, but was very reluctant to give them up and hand them over to me.

Ok, I’ll let you get back to watching the tv now…

You are a “medium sized” mom so what do you expect?! Too funny! At least he’s not calling you a monster-I think mine does but he’s 15 ;) Enjoy the innocence!!! I love reading your blog to remind me what they used to be like! :)
