Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

Thoughts from a six year old...

Today, I attended 'Muffins with Moms' at Regan's school. It was a special time for all first graders to spend with their moms, in honor of Mother's day. The kids did a lot of fun things in preparation for the event. They planted little seed pots, decorated bags for the muffins to go in and decorated place mats. They also made 'paper moms' (large paper dolls decorated to look their mom) and filled out a booklet called 'My Mother'.

Here are the things Regan wrote about me in her booklet and inside of her 'paper mom' (italicized parts are where she filled in her own words:

My Mom is special.
She likes to hug me.
She always sweet.
Sometimes she talks to herself.
But the best thing about my MOM is that she's prety.

My mother is 37 years old.
My mother's favorite sport is baseball.
My mother's name is Cristiy.
My mother is special.
My mother and I like to read.
My mother is great because she makes me dinner.
My mother likes it when I help her.
This is my mother. I love you
My mother likes to run.
My mother's favorite food is muffins.
My mother's favorite color is blue.
I love it when my mother play with the dog.
My mother is good at Wii.

They also put together a slide show of photos with each child and their mom. The kids then made a little audio clip stating what was special about their mom. Regan's comment was 'My mom is special to me because she packs my lunch every day.'.

What a great day with my kiddo and a good reminder that I don't have to be 'supermom' to be special to her...I just need to pack her lunch. Isn't it great!! :)
