Jacob’s preschool held a Mothers’ Tea this morning for all the mamas. It was similar to the Dinner with Dads that Jeremiah was invited to in January.
When I arrived, there was a note to take a seat and wait for the class to arrive. So I took a snap of my place at the table…First I have to say that I love the foot butterfly. I remember Jacob coming home from school saying they had painted his feet for a project and then said that I wasn’t really supposed to hear that. I never expected this! And on the back of the paper laying at my place setting was an interview of what Jacob thinks of me.My Mom…My mom is 15 years old. Her favorite food is lettuce, I mean salad. Mommy’s favorite store is the market. My mommy’s job is to bake stuff. When mommy has some free time, she likes to rest on the couch. I love it when mommy makes spaghetti for dinner. I love it when mommy plays the twister track with me. I make my mommy laugh when I tell her jokes. I love my mommy more than my favorite toys.
Now to clarify on those interesting facts from my stinker of a five-year old. I am not 15 (but thanks, buddy!). I do eat a lot of salad, so I can see where he thinks this. I am not sure what “market” he is talking about for my favorite store. I do “bake stuff”. I guess reading isn’t something I do in my free time since I apparently rest on the couch. He does like spaghetti. He did get a new hot wheels double dare snare track that is pretty cool. I think I played with it one time. Although Jacob does like to tell jokes, they are typically not very funny. He makes me laugh with his quirkiness. I am honored that he loves me more than his favorite toys!
The class sang a few songs that were just amazing. I know kids at this age can’t carry a tune (much like this mama) but I can’t help but love kids singing. It’s just so happy and they are so proud to be doing it. It’s really one of my favorite things ever.Especially when there are moves…After the kids performed their songs, we had a little feast of muffins, fruit, cookies, and mini quiche. It was a lovely morning. I’m glad I was able to spend it with my favorite 5-year-old boy.
