It's Good to be a Mom

I know Sam is probably not THE cutest 5-year-old in the whole world, but some days I think he is. Today was the Mother's Day Tea in Sam's class at school. Sam's teacher is amazing and does these wonderful things like teach them to stand in line and sing complimentary songs about their mothers. So cute.

After the three-song revue, the kids gave us all our presents, which were brooches (I called it a pin, but Sam insisted it was a brooch) that they had decorated and put their photos on. I got to wear it for almost a whole half hour before it was taken from me:

Along with the brooch came a card that included the following tidbits about me from Sam's perspective (as answers to questions such as "My Mom's color of eyes are:)": My eyes are orange. My hair is "kind of a ponytail." My favorite food is "healthy food." (Really, Sam? Have you met me?) I'm happy when Sam is happy. I am sad when Sam is sad.

I am 33 inches tall.

My favorite hobby is to "make dinner." Which is correct if, by "make dinner," Sam meant, "eat dinner." My favorite movie is Peter Pan. And Sam loves me because "she sends me to bed after bath a lot." If I'd known that all I had to do to get him to love me is to send him to bed, well, his bedtime would be 3:30 p.m.

Sam also drew this lovely picture of me in a polka dot dress:

Either I have some kind of horrible skin disease, or a beautiful veil because those polka dots extend to my face. Please notice the pony tail. That's right. Sticking straight up.

I LOVE Mother's Day. Tomorrow I get to go to Jack's class' tea. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Awwww... I think each dot represents a piece of love he has for you, and that's why he tried to fit as many in as possible. :)

    (I'm not usually that sappy, but that's what I thought when I saw the picture.)

  2. I can't help but laugh. So cute!
