For Mother's Day, each my kids gave me a paper where they had filled in the blanks to explain why I am a super mom. My kids think they're pretty funny.
The oldest melted my heart by describing me as understanding and kind. Then I saw that she also included "short." She likes to tease me about this because it won't be long before she is taller than I am and she's not even ten yet. Ha ha. She also wrote that I am "in discise." I can only assume this is meant to be "in disguise" and to tell you the truth, that one has me a little baffled. Does she not believe that I am her real mother??
Oh, my middle child. She said some nice things too. But mostly she left a lot of blank spaces. I am trying to console myself by believing that she didn't have time because of the beautiful picture that she drew.
And my youngest said that I am super at: "unscrewing things that run out of batteries." Yes, I have many talents. The funny thing about that statement, is that when she wants me to change the batteries in something, I struggle to even find a screwdriver that is small enough. And other times, I have been too wimpy to unscrew the opening that contains the batteries even if I have a screwdriver. Then I explain that she will have to wait until her dad gets home. I am glad she has been able to look over these times to see that when it actually happens, I am good at it. (The trick is to look at the positive and negative signs.)
Don't I look great in green? At least I have a head, because my oldest drew me without one of those.
I hope all you moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day!
