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.
