Friday I attended the now-annual 4th grade Mother’s Day Tea. (I missed it when the boys were in 4th grade which is a whole ‘nother story in itself.)
The kids put a lot of work into the day. Upon arrival we had to play “How Well Do You Know Your Child”. Each student had answered 8 questions – favorite color, movie, food, etc. We had to write our child’s name on the one we thought was theirs.
Can I just say that’s a lot of added pressure for an adoptive mom. I knew I was going to be in BIG trouble if I screwed this up. I narrowed it down to the 4 cards that had purple as their favorite color and went from there. The one I finally settled on had “none” for four of the answers.
Whew, I guessed right!
The kids served us cake, fruit and tea as we looked through the book of poems they’d been working on all year.
The last page was “My Mom”.
I love the second from the last – “Even though she has four kids she has it under control.”
Ha! Guess I have them fooled 🙂
