In Their Own Words...

This weekend I was away at a planning meeting for a group I'm finishing up my last year in (nothing to do with homeschooling). At the meeting, we were presented with letters from our kids - basically interviews the Dads had done, asking questions and writing down what the darlings had answered.

I know. Too awesome. And of course I have to share...

What makes your mom special?
Iggy - We love her. We wouldn't even exist without her. We like to play with her.
Ooky - If she didn't exist she couldn't tuck us in for bedtime. If she wasn't born ever, we wouldn't have her.

What is one thing you love that your mom does?
Iggy - Helps me find my eight million dolls.
Ooky - Bakes with me.

What do you miss most about your mom when she is gone?
Iggy: I don't really know because we have boys days when she's gone and those are pretty fun.
Ooky: All of her.

What does your mom do that makes you proud?
Iggy: Plays badminton
Ooky: Is on my team for badminton

What is one thing you'd like to tell your mom?
Iggy: That my brother keeps doing it.
Ooky: That is all my brother's fault.

I especially love that last one. Because I was of course assuming I'd get a sweet somewhat staged nugget about being a fantastic mom. But no. Given the chance, the ONE thing they want to tell me is that their brother is the source of all pain and anquish in the world.

Perfect. :)

Yup. That's how it goes.
Sap is over-rated anyway. :)

What a hoot. I love that last answer: it's so Iggy and Ooky!
