My absolute favorite mother's day from my children was hearing their ideas about ME. At four, my son thought I was 6 feet tall, (especially funny for those who know just how short I am) and 27 years old. He knew I love chocolate and that I cuddle with him to show him how much I love him. At eight, my daughter thought I weighed 47lbs and that when I was not with her or her brother, I was at work trying to help people. Seeing their handwriting, the silliness of their answers, and the outrageousness of their perceptions has brought me laughter and happiness in a lasting way that no material gift ever could. Make up funny questions, concrete questions, adjust it to the age of kids, have someone do it for you! It is a snapshot of them. Below is the list of questions that I will be asking my children to answer this year. Feel free to use and then share the amusing and loving responses!
1. How old am I?
2. How much do I weigh?
3. How tall am I?
4. What do I do when she is not with you?
5. What do I like most about you?
6. What gets me mad?
7. What does mom always say to you?
8. What is my favorite thing to do?
9. Do you want to be a mom someday? Why or why not?
10. How do you know I love you?
