Sarah presented me with a letter yesterday entitled "My Special Mother". It was like a little Mad Lib that her teacher helped her fill out. It was such a cute way to start my Mother's Day. (The words in bold are her actual answers.)
My Special Mother
My mother is the most wonderful mom in the whole world. She is as pretty as me. She weighs 100 pounds and is 7 feet tall. Her favorite food is broccoli. She is 44 years old.
In the good old days, when mom was little, she used to read. Now she likes to run.
I think mom looks funny when she is on the swing. I know she is really angry when she yells. I make her happy when I play with her.
I wish mom would play hide-and-seek with me everyday.
I would not trade my mother for $10.00!
Happy Mother's Day!
Sarah also wrote me a letter in addition to the Mad Lib she did at school and it says:
You are the best. You make me happy. I love you. You give the best hugs. You take me everywhere. You help me with everything. You are good but the best part is you love me.
From Sarah C.
And Peter, not wanting to be outdone on Mother's Day, wrote me the following:
I love you Mom! Thank you for being my mom!
I told the kids I will keep these letters forever and you know what, I will. Their words mean so much more to me than any other gift they could ever give me. How wonderful to know that my babies love me!
(And the sweet card from my husband? How wonderful to know that he loves me too!)
