Happy Mother's Day!

I am so lucky to spend this holiday with the best mothers I know, this one and this one.

After learning that Chip and I had written nice things in this space about our mothers, my kids couldn't wait to do the same. Here are their essays.

My mom is the best. I love my mom. She is so awesome! I want to be with her and hug her and kiss her and play with her all the time every day. Sometimes at school I'm sad because I miss her. She doesn't play with me enough, though, and sometimes she yells at me for ignoring her the other 24 times she tells me to do something. But I still love her. She buys me Bionicles when I do my chores, and she reads to me and colors with me and plays with me, sometimes but not all the time like I want her to. I wish I could always be with her because I love her so much!

Mom- is that the tall one or the other one? Oh yeah. She's the one always trying to brush my hair- what the hell is that about? Like her hair is all that. But I guess it's cool when she lets me help her cook. I have my own little knife and everything, which I always use to cut butter. Also I can use it to eat the butter I cut because it's not too sharp and doesn't hurt me. She sometimes lets me smash garlic under the big knife, but other than that I'm not allowed to use it. How can she not trust me with that thing? I'm practically an adult! Mom also cleans up whenever Clarkie throws up a hairball, and that's pretty cool because Clark is my most favorite person in the whole house, even if he is a cat. I love you, Clarkie!
