Before we are lunch, the kiddies serenaded the mommies with two songs. Of course, as soon as my Teense saw all those eyes on her (you know how scary the faces of your own mother and your preschool teachers can be), she darted behind me and hid under my skirt for the remainder of the performance. She's such a little spitfire; it just cracks me up that she gets so shy in front of groups!
Anyway, Rebecca had taken individual photos of the kids on Tuesday and added those photos to some paper flowers whose petals were actually cut-out hand prints of each child. The "garden" was all over Rebecca's house and looked adorable.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch which included homemade bread still warm from the oven! Thankfully, my Mackenna was so busy enjoying her grapes, strawberries, ham and Doritos, that she didn't have time to even think about chewing on my limbs!
Seriously though, my favorite part about the whole program was when Teensy gave me the tissue paper flowers she had made me and also presented me with a questionnaire Miss Rebecca had filled in with Teense's answers. It reads as follows:
My favorite thing about my mom is...she loves me.
My mom always helps me...clean my room.
My mom's favorite thing to do is...quilting.
My favorite thing to do with my mom is...clean with her.
My mom's favorite color is...yellow.
I help my mom by...making cooking dough.
My mom likes...to clean because our house is messy.
My mom is special because...I love her.
At least she mentioned cleaning three times more than she mentioned cookie dough. I love the little glimpse into her perspective on things. How funny that she didn't say making cookie dough is her favorite thing to do with me. Instead, she said she helps me by making cookie dough. She's the victim here, people!
It was a mommy-feel-good affair and this mommy couldn't have needed it more!
