Mother's Day

I had a good Mother's Day! I hope all of you motha's did too! Last Monday at MOPS my children made me cards. Piper's is the green one. Finn's is in the middle. Seven's is the purple one with his blue hand print on it. Finn's was supposed to have his hand print on it, but his teacher said he didn't want to get his hand messy, so he didn't make a hand print for me. I told his teacher I guess that's what happens when a child has two parents who don't like to get their hands messy. Neither Jeremy nor I like to get our hands messy. I thought it was funny that Finn's doesn't have a hand print because of that. Piper also made me a card at school. This is the outside of the card.
This is the inside of the card. She was so proud to give it to me. She is still learning how to write some of the letters the correct way.
This is the picture that Piper colored for me at school. I guess she ran out of room for her last name. It's funny because when she runs out of room for letters, she will put them on top of the word, or below the word.
Her teacher also asked her some questions and she answered them. I tried to take a picture of the sheet of paper with the questions and answers on it, but it was kind of hard to read. I wanted to share it with you because some of them I think are pretty funny. The paper was titled, "My mom is the most wonderful mom in the world!" Here are the questions and answers... Her name is: Amy. She always says: "Don't get out of your bed." My mom likes to eat: sandwiches. The best thing she cooks is: sausage. My mom's favorite clothes to wear are: dresses. On television, she likes to watch: commercials. My mom doesn't like to: feed my brothers. When she was little she: played with babies. She likes to help me: clean up my room. I think my mom is funny when she: gives me funny kisses at bedtime. I know my mom is smart because she: knows lots of rhyming words.

I kind of think Piper didn't know the answers to some of these questions or she just answered what her answer would have been instead of mine. I am not a big fan of sandwiches. I don't think she has ever seen me in a dress, unless she can remember me wearing a dress when I was pregnant with Finn. I doubt it, though, since she was 13 months old when he was born. Don't know that I really like to watch commercials on tv. But maybe some of the few shows that I watch look like commercials to her, like the Today Show. I watch the news too. Maybe she thinks that is commercials. Not quite sure. The last question, I know my mom is smart because she knows lots of rhyming words, that one cracked me up! She had been learning about rhyming words in school and I was helping her with it. I guess she thought I knew alot of words that rhymed.

Jeremy and the kids got me a few gifts too. I got two different scents of lotion from Bath & Body Works. Black Rasberry Vanilla and Sweet Pea. Mmmm! And a Black Rasberry Vanilla body wash. Jeremy also got me (or rather us) a set of 450 thread count cotton sheets. Aahhhh! They feel sooooo good! I took a picture of them so you could see the color. It is a little darker than the picture. I guess the flash made it a little brighter.
For lunch we went to Chili's. My choice. I had just gone to the Olive Garden a few nights before or I would have chosen that for lunch. I love the Olive Garden. But an Old Timer with cheese sounded good for lunch on Mother's Day. I really like cheeseburgers too! And to top off Mother's Day, I got to take a nap! I don't get to nap very often, but I was very glad I got to take one on Mother's Day!

  1. I like the idea of asking the kids questions. I few of my friends did little 'interviews' with their kids and posted the answers on their blogs. Too funny to see what kids are thinking. Sounds like you had a great day!!
