Big Brother presented me with his Mother’s Day gift this morning. They made them in pre-school so, since he doesn’t go on Fridays, today was the big reveal.
Cute, huh? There’s a marigold seed planted in the pot and Big Brother’s face in the center of the flower, where you see a white circle of paper. There’s also a very sweet poem on the back of the picture about how he, too, grew from just a tiny seed but my care and love (and truckloads of mac and cheese) made him grow as big and strong as he is today.
I was touched. Hugs, kisses, thank yous all around.
Then his teacher handed me the accompanying card and, with a smile, told me that Big Brother’s card was one of the most memorable. Which brought his second teacher over, also smiling, to tell me (and I quote) “There are no secrets around here.”
Oh, dear Lord. I opened it:
Let me just zoom in on a little gem for you.
What a sweetheart, no? Ratting me out for dyeing my hair.
Good thing he’s just the kid of the blue-eyed mailman or Husband might be upset.
Chores to do and dishes to sort! Wooohooooo!!!
