Mother's Day

Keller came home from preschool last week with my personal invitation to Mother's Day Tea. He was so excited & kept giving me the countdown of days until I got to accompany him to preschool.

The kids sang us some great songs like 'You Are My Sunshine' & also each named a reason they loved their mom. Keller's response: "I love my Mommy because she takes me to the store to buy iceream & we take it home & make it." Yes, of course our love includes food!

We had lovely refreshments & sat & visited. The 'sit & visit' concept was a bit hard for 7 4-year olds.

Keller has loved the time he has gotten to spend at Miss Marci's this year.
Included at our Mother's Day Tea was a book that the kids filled out with information about their moms:

My Mom is 52 years old.
My Mom is good at driving her car.
My Mom cooks really good rice, green beans & corn.
My Mom has brown hair.
My Mom weighs 92 pounds.
It makes me happy when my Mom gives me snuggles.
I like to play outside with my Mom.

Alas -- I have no Mother's Day picture with Keller. I thought the above hand drawn pic by Kel would suffice. I was having an especially good hair day!

How cute is that preschool tea??? I don't know why but this post made me get all teary! I love Mother's Day! For all the crap we go through there is small glimmers of love from our kids where they appreciate these little things the most like "getting me ice-cream at the store." LOVE IT! He's getting too big by the way. I want him to still be a baby that could recite the ABC's. :)
