I was able to go alone with Macy which was very special. We ate some muffins then I went to her classroom to see the things she made me for Mother's Day.
Her teacher Miss Julie cut out silhouettes of all the kids.
Macy colored pictures of a story that is totally my life. This is the story (it's patterned after If You Give a a Mouse a Cookie)
If you give a mom a muffin, chances are she'll want a cup of coffee to go with it. She'll pour herself some.
Her 3-year old will spill the coffee. She'll wipe it up. Wiping the floor she'll find a dirty sock. She'll remember she has to do the laundry.
When she puts the laundry into the washer she'll trip over a boot and bump into the freezer.
Bumping into the freezer will remind her that she has to plan for supper. She'll get out a pound of hamburger. She'll look for her cookbook "101 things to do with hamburger."
The cookbook is sitting under a pile of mail. She will see the phone bill which is due tomorrow. She will look for her checkbook.
The checkbook is in her purse, which is being dumped out by her two year old. She'll smell something funny. She will go change the 2-year old's diaper.
While she is changing the diaper, the phone will ring. Her five year old will answer and hang up. She'll remember she wants to phone a friend for coffee.
Thinking of coffee will remind her that she was going to have a cup. And chances are...
If she has a cup of coffee, her kids will have eaten the muffin that went with it.
She wrote her name in this card.
She drew this adorable picture of us.
And she planted some flowers for me.
