Mother of the Year????


Sunday morning Luke was so excited to bring me the presents he had made at school for Mother's Day....so sweet! I have to share the entry he wrote as to why he thought I should win the Mother of the Year Award...Toby and I were cracking up all day about it. :) His teacher made this into a book with every child's letter.

Dear Judges,

I'm writing because I want to tell you why you should make my mom Mother of the Year. She is kind and warm hearted. My mom now does her work online just to have time to do stuff with me and my baby brother. My mom is a great cook. She makes the best mashed potatoes. My mom is the best because Cheri makes my bed and cleans my room. She is a caring person. She gives stuff to the homeless. Cheri is sweet because sometimes she lets me miss school and go do something fun so that's why you should pick my mom for Mother of the Year.

Love,
Luke Foreman

....oh my gosh we were laughing so hard. 1st... why is my son now referring to me by my first name? 2nd... Wowza, I suppose I need to back off on the making his bed and cleaning his room and turn that over to my almost 8 year old (his future wife would appreciate that I'm sure). 3rd... hmnn, do you think I will now get turned into the attendance police to explain that Luke's absences were not indeed doctor appointments, but rather a much deserved visit to Disneyland and on another occasion a visit to see the play Pippi Longstocking during school hours?? Whoops! :)

Oh Luke...you make us laugh, you make us melt, you make us so, so proud! Thank you for just being the little boy you are. You and your brother mean more to your dad and I than words could ever express! XOXO Mom

Love you guys!

OOPS! Forgot to say how cute Luke's letter was! I always love it when the teachers give me the letters and drawings from the kids of me for Secretary's Day. One of my favs!!

Luke wrote from his perspective, and from the heart... making his bed, the mashed potatoes, allowing him time off school... all true, isn't it? And then your name is Cheri, so.... why not put it in?

Sweet, sweet indeed.

The b&w photo of the boys is beautiful!
