Mother's Day

Today is Mother's Day in our little corner of the world.  For Mother's Day, we asked each child a series of questions about their mom and typed out the answers.  

The questions were:

How old is your mom?

What colour is her hair?  What colour are her eyes?

What does your mom love to cook?

What does your mom always tell you?

What makes your mom happy?

What do you really love about your mom?

Each child drew a picture of their mom to go along with the responses.  The responses were so genuine, funny and touching. 

Here are a few of them.  You can click on the images to make them larger.

Four year old M. insisted on drawing a rainbow instead of his mom because
she loves rainbows.  He loves everything about his mom.

Four year old E. told us her mom loves her and can't live without her. 

Five year old E. told us that her mom is tired of cooking.

Four year old N. is very competitive.  Although he loves it when his mom goes
skating with him, he made sure we knew she wasn't very good at it.

Five year old L. told us that his mom always tells him everything has a place.
L. comes from a large family so I can imagine his mom says this often.

Five year old Z. told us that her mom's hair is black but sometimes
it turns white.

We love three year old M.'s drawing of his mom.

Three year old K. would not draw the rest of her mom because she wasn't
very good at drawing arms.  This is a lovely drawing of her mom.

Happy Mother's Day!
