Mother’s Day Guest Post: “My Mother” by N and Nee

At school, my son, N, had to fill out a sheet with questions about his mother. After reading his answers, I asked my daughter, Nee, to do the same thing. Their combined answers comprise this special Mother’s Day post:

My mother is 20 feet tall and weighs 79 pounds. Her eyes are dark brown and her hair is dark brown. She loves to watch football and her favorite food is Chinese food. She always cooks broccoli.

My mother always asks me to make my bed. I don’t like it when she asks me to not cry about the giant beetles.

My mother really likes to play Battleship with me. When she is angry she gives me a spanking or a time out. I can tell when my mother is happy because she laughs real loud.

I know my mom loves me because she always gives me hugs and kisses.

My mother is 6 feet tall and weighs 100 pounds. Her eyes are dark brown and her hair is dark brown. She loves to work on her computer and her favorite food is pasta. She always cooks enchiladas.

My mother always asks me to watch my little brother, X. I don’t like it when she asks me to talk.

My mother really likes to play the Wii with me. When she is angry she screams at the top of her lungs. I can tell when my mother is happy because her smile is on.

I know my mom loves me because she waits for me for a long time in the carpool line after school.

Stay Strong,
