Mommy I love You
This past Wednesday Alysee had a special Mother's Day Tea at her preschool. All the preschool kids sang several cute mommy songs and then their teacher did a little guessing game for the moms. She read the answer that the preschoolers gave to five different questions and then we had to guess which mommy it was. Well, when mine was read I had no idea Alysee was describing ME. Here are her answers:
Favorite color - red
Favorite food - lettuce
My favorite thing to do with my mother is - play games.
My mother's favorite thing to do by herself or with a friends is - watch mom and dad movies.
If you know me well you will probably find these answers comical too. After her teacher said that this mommy's favorite food was "lettuce" I pretty much tuned the rest out. This is the first year that I have actually come to tolerate lettuce (as long as it is covered in a sugar/vinegar/olive oil dressing). The other thing that was funny is that I like to watch mom and dad movies. That is actually true but it is a rarity at our house. Birch isn't much of a movie/tv watcher and so it is something we do maybe a half dozen times a year. Anyway, we got a good chuckle.
I did appreciate Alysee's picture of me, though. Recently she noticed that I have one silver filling in my teeth and so she has been drawing all the pictures of me with an "owie" on my teeth to represent my filling. I love my butterfly earrings that she drew on me. Gotta love a child's honesty!
