Hopefully the moms reading this had a nice Mother’s Day. I enjoyed a nice day with my sons (ages 8 and 6). I’ve cracked the code for happy kids: a trip to the beach! They were happy, I was happy watching (and catching a few waves with a Boogie Board!), all was well with the world.
The boys each brought home really cute Mother’s Day gifts from school on Friday. I’m such a sucker for handprint art from my kids!
My 6-year-old asked me to turn his Mother’s Day card to me into a Handprint Identification Panel for his room. So that only he could enter/exit, and not his brother. Okay, why not? What else was I going to do with a Mother’s Day gift from my son?
Each boy also brought home these question and answer sheets. They filled in the blanks answering questions about Mom.
I won’t show the whole thing — since it has things like my age and my favorite colors. You guys don’t need to know all that. But here’s a sliver of each boys’ assignment, which is a glimpse into what they think about me.
The other questions and answers were all very nice. My oldest son’s above answer above certainly has me assessing the laptop fused to my lap, and whether it’s time to back off a little. I think so.
So if you see less of me online, this is probably why…

My son’s preschool teacher interviewed each child about their mom. My son said I was 22 years old, 2 feet tall and weigh 40 lbs. (He was off by a decade and I am not the size of a chubby toddler!) He also said that I love to mop the floor and that if I could go anywhere on vacation I would go “someplace that doesn’t cost any money”.
Katie, That’s positively darling! Is he right that you’d take a vacation somewhere that doesn’t cost any money? That’s my kind of vacation!!!
Thanks for sharing!
A vacation that doesn’t cost any money sounds perfect to me! 🙂
