Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a special Mother's Day Tea at Betsy's preschool. Although, as she kept reminding me, "It's not really going to be tea, Mom, because we're just kids." I assured her that pretend tea was fine, too.
She greeted me at the door with a rainbow colored tissue paper flower and led me to my seat. The teachers explained how the children had done all the work themselves, from cleaning the classroom to setting the table and arranging flowers in vases. Betsy beamed as she poured me a cup of lemonade and served me a fruit kabob that she had assembled and a cup of "dirt" with a gummy worm in it.
Next to my plate and napkin was a sheet of Little Known Facts About My Mommy. Here's me, according to my eldest:
Hair Color: Brownish black
Height: 1 1/2 feet
Weight: 100 (Apparently another student wrote 5 million pounds. Oof.)
Hobbies: Read and play with me and Abigail
Favorite Food: Bok choy
Mommy's Job: To keep me and Abigail safe and play with me and Abigail
Why She Loves Me: Because she likes what I do and because I chase after Abigail
Thank you Betsy, and thank you teachers, for a most lovely morning. I will treasure it always.
