Mother’s Day Card

This is what your required made-at-school Mother’s Day card looks like if you’re a high energy kindergartener, youngest of four, and your mama is on her very last nerve:

My Mom and Me

We (fill in the blank):  like to walk together.

She is as pretty as:  lightning.

Her favorite food is:  veggie pizza.

In the good old days when mom was little she used to:  be weird.

I think my mom looks funny when she:  reads.

My mom’s secret talent is that she can:  yell.

 

Diplomacy

Oh my children, if your mother gets up early on Saturday morning the day before Mother’s Day and makes you a special breakfast cake in a kickin’-cool castle-shaped bundt pan, it is not a good idea for three of the four of you to wail, “Eww!  I don’t like it!  Can I have something else?  What IS it?”

For one thing, the more-astute teenager, concerned about his siblings’ continued existence, can only shove in so much.  And he lies badly.

Although to be fair, “Yum!  Mom, this is great!”, probably NEVER sounds persuasive coming out of a teenager’s mouth.
