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 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.
– N, age 6

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.
– Nee, age 9
Question: How would your kids fill in the blanks?
