Mother's Day

For Mother's Day this year Josiah made me a card and a ceramic photo ornament at preschool. Inside the card was a drawing of me and the following fill-in-the-blank piece:
My mom is the most wonderful mom in the world!

Her name is Ellen. She's pretty as a rainbow. She is 22 years old. She has blue eyes and blond hair. She weighs 22 pounds and is 20' 22'' tall. Her favorite food is coffee. I think Mom is funny when she is fancy. But I know she she's really angry when I play with my food. I wouldn't trade my mom from "Star Wars". I love me mom because she's beautiful!
I love being a mom! Who else but a five-year old would describe someone as "pretty as a rainbow"? How sweet.

One of the things I asked for as a Mother's Day treat was to sleep in. As in, "Please do not come into my room and jump on me at 6:30 a.m.!" They honored my request. Al got up with Elijah at 6:00 a.m. and Josiah quietly popped in sometime during the morning to leave a "Happy Mother's Day" sign on my bed stand, but other than that I was able to sleep as late as I wanted. The funny thing is that I actually missed having everyone pile into our bed.
