One of the best things about Mother’s Day is the charming cards, notes, letters and crafts that young kids make in school to honor their moms. I still have quite a few of those “keepers” from the big kids, though a couple of crepe-paper flowers have disintegrated with time. But I only have one child who’s still young enough to make these in school.
With that, I bring you Little Brother’s Mother’s Day card and letter to me.
He made the card in Spanish class, and it’s the only Spanglish greeting card I’ve ever received:
!Feliz dia de las madres!
Te amo…Little Brother
Roses are red, Violets are blue,
You love me and I love you!
This was adorned not only with a cute picture, but a sticker of a white duck with the words “Right On!”
He also wrote me a letter, using his best cursive writing. Attached to this letter (making it more than a little top-heavy) is a lily made from his cut-out handprint and a pipe cleaner.
Happy Mother’s Day! It’s been 19 years as a mom. I love you more than anything. (Except for Dad, Big Brother and Middle Sister.) You’re the best mom a kid could have. You’re the best, remember that.
I love how he very charmingly hedged his bets in that letter, not wanting to play favorites or anything.
Hope your Mother’s Day is a sweet one!
