For Mother's Day

Ms. Nancy asked Eric to "fill in the blank" and answer some questions about me for Mother's Day. Here we go, in Eric's words -

My mom's name is Jennifer. She has brown eyes and dark brown hair. She likes to wear dresses and short sleeves. Her favorite color is purple and blue. I want to give you 152 kisses. My mom is good at playing hide and seek and making food. I love it when my mom cooks hot dogs, meat, and ice cream. We like to throw snowballs together.

As for Sarah, Ms. Roberts compiled a class cookbook, with each child explaining how to make a favorite mom-made recipe. Here's Sarah's -

Sugar Cookies


First, Mommy puts the flour in a bowl. Then milk and sugar and then the cinnamon. She pours it into another bowl with a thing that stirs it up. Then she puts it in the refrigerator until it gets cold. After dinner we take it out and unwrap it. Then we roll it out and press the shapes of the cookies out. They are usually animals. After we do that, we put oil on it and sprinkle the sprinkles on it. The oil makes it sticky. We put it in the oven and wait until it is all done baking. Then we eat it!

About the Author
Sarah is six years old. She likes to play with her brother. At school her favorite activity is specials.

Note from the Author
My mom is special because she lets me have treats!

(If you'd like the actual recipe, let me know. She has the big idea, but the details aren't exactly accurate.)

Although my eyes are blue, and I don't usually wear dresses (and never throw snowballs in May), and even though Sarah is largely treat-deprived because of her lack of healthy-eating, I do appreciate their sweet words. I couldn't ask for anything more. (Except for maybe 152 kisses!)

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful moms I'm so lucky to know. I hope you had a great day.
