Did I say I don’t like Mother’s Day? Not sure I’ve actually blogged that or not, but I know I’ve definitely said it. Here’s more fickle: Today, I LOVE IT!!
Frankie came home from school today with a purple flower (my favorite color) and a People magazine spoof for Mother of the Year. I won’t write it all, but here are some of the highlights that shock me, surprise me, warm my heart beyond belief.
She should be mother of the year because:
She doesn’t make me spoiled.
She gives me good advice.
She is cautious about my health.
She works three jobs to put food on my table.
She comforts me when I am sad.
She supports me when life throws problems at me.
When I’m sick she stays up all night to make sure I’m okay.
She supports the school by coming in class every once in awhile.
What do you love most about your mom?
She cares about my feelings.
What’s the smartest thing your mom has ever told you?
Don’t sing during class.
What kind of stuff is your mom really good at?
What’s one thing your mom should do more of?
Go to the bar and have a good time. (And I feel guilty when I get the chance to go out!)
What do you think your mom was like before she had kids?
She was probably happier. (That’s an ouch!)
Complete this sentence. “I know my mom loves me because she thinks I am funny.” (I think he’s hilarious, actually)
And last but not least, drum roll please….
If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?
Nothing, you’re amazing!
I love Mother’s Day!!!
