Happy Mother's Day to me?

Tyler: "Mom, I'm sorry."

Me: "What for?"

Tyler: "When I was coloring your Mother's Day card at school, I messed up."
Me: "I'm sure it will be fine."

Tyler: "I don't know how to draw faces. I accidentally gave you a beak."

Me: "Oh, well, uh, thank you for trying."

Tyler: "I'm sorry I drew you ugly."

Me: "That's OK."

So now, in addition to Phil being out of town for two weeks and the 7am hockey game on Mother's Day, the only card I'll be getting is a portrait of me with a beak. 

The joys of motherhood. :D


  1. That will be one to pull out and show his girlfriend in a few years ;)

  2. Awww... That made me smile. He tried so hard!

  3. Awwwww. It's the thought that counts...right?

  4. The last family portrait my daughter drew had everyone in the family in stick figure form, except for me. I was a giant circle with arms and legs sticking out. When I asked my daughter what was up, she said, "It's because you're soft and cuddly, mamma." Well, if she's going to put it THAT way, I'm fine with it, lol. You have to post the card now, you know!


Thank you for visiting and letting me know your thoughts!
