Today was a milestone of sorts. Every year the daycare or the school has done some sort of project for Mother’s day but it didn’t seem really personal and the boys didn’t really understand what it was all about. Today, that changed…
On Tuesday (thanks for the advanced notice), I got an email from the Room Parents of both boys’ class that the First Grade classes were going to present the “poems” they were writing for Mother’s day at 10:00 on Friday. Luckily, I didn’t have plans…in fact, had planned on taking Friday off and doing some grocery shopping. So, I got to go.
My mom’s name is Suzanne and she works at a downtown hospital. One of my mom’s favorite things to do is work. She also like Diet Pepsi and fried “chiken”. My mom’s eyes are as black as a storm. Her hair is as black as night.
Okay, if that didn’t make you cry…wait till you see the side of the paper.
Yup, it says: “I rilly love you mom.”
Riley got to go first in his class so I could get to Matthew’s classroom. I got there in plenty of time.
Here is Matthew’s poem:
okay, if you can’t read it …here are a couple of close ups…
My mom’s name is Suzanne. One thing about her is she is nice. Two things she likes are hugs and singing. Her eyes are brown. Every day she cleans. Really I think my mom is special because I love her. Love, Matthew.
Okay, I was (barely) able to avoid blubbering but I definitely had tears running down my cheeks.
I won’t comment on how neither of them knew what color my eyes were…we’ll have to work on that for next year!
