My Mom (by my 7-year-old)

May 09, 2010 - 11 comments

We've all seen 'em.  Those adorable fill in the blank forms that schools will have children fill in containing the children's perception of their moms.  Well, my daughter, who is in 1st grade, brought home HERS to ME this past Friday.  I love it, and thought I'd share it.  My heart is heavy for the mom of a teenager in our community who took his life overnight Friday, so this card is even MORE cherished in light of that tragedy......  Feel free to share any and ALL Mother's Day anecdotes here.  Come one, come all.......   (I do believe you will be able to figure out which part is my dau's summing up of

Height:  8 Foot

Weight:  not to (sic) much

Age:  45 (darn!  she got THAT right!  lol)

Color Eyes:  Green

Color Hair:  red is n/orange (YOU figure that out!  is it "red as in orange?"  lol)

Likes:  me and megan plus Dad Kevin (should be an & in there after Dad)

Dislikes:  Spiders and Frogs mud


1.  My mother looks prettiest when: you dasint ware make up

2.  I like being with my mom most when: we go on a trip

3.  If I could give my mother something special just from me it would be: the Best Drawing ever

Love, Erin

Oh . . .  I love this!  I haven't gotten one of those yet but I think I will do it myself for the kids to give their dad on Father's Day.
I overheard my nephew tell my Aunt that she had little tiny holes all over her face (pores!).  
My son's say I have "yellow" hair (which I've paid big bucks to make sure it isn't "yellow").
My son just asked me why I say Daddy's the boss but I keep telling him what to do.  
My son says I'm the "best cooker" because I make his favorite mac and cheese (thank you Kraft!).

Specialmom, I could weigh a LOT if I was 8 "Foot" tall !    LOL, but what I *couldn't* get onto the journal was her face as I read this out loud and *obviously* enjoyed it.  It was PRICELESS !    I love what you shared....the "holes" (translation: pores), the yellow hair you pay dearly NOT to have, and the rest.  Thanks for adding those, they are great.

Margy, you should have seen me when my hair used to be spiked.....yup - it was.

Ladybug and Nickie, I'm glad you enjoyed it, too and how wonderful to make your acquaintance!  

Trudie, let's just say I  need to be loved.....I also have a 15-year-old dau......need I say more?  lol

Adgal, I like that: larger than life for her.....hmmm, yes indeed...I'll remember that.

Ska4life, she can be tonic for the soul, she's just one of THOSE children.....but she can also, well, NOT be....I'll leave it at that, k?

These precious moments! we hang on to them don't we? You have a teenager, so you know that we have to go back and remember when they were "little and loved us", ha ha.

Hope you had a wonderful Mothers Day....
