Now, back to the beginning of the day . . . I was also asked to wake up quite early in the morning by having presents shoved in my face, and if you know me, you know to not mess with me in the morning . . . apparently that slipped Charming Child's ever precious little mind!! Charming Child gave me a hand-painted paper mache` cup and saucer, that I have been informed I cannot drink my coffee in (which is not very helpful so early in the morning), and this beautiful, hand-painted portrait of me (for all of you who have been wondering what I look like!)
You are careing because you take care of me no matter what.
You are funny because you always do something without thinking.
You do your very best to take care of me and you always help everybody. You try to make everybody happy. You drive me everywhere I need to be.
I need you to no I love you.
I hope this makes you feel great because you make me feel great everyday.
Love, The Girl who relly appreciates you
After I read this letter, I took a few moments to enjoy the sweetness of its contents, then I promptly informed her that the next time she screams at me, I am going to read this to her, over and over and over again!! (Okay, as a teacher I just have to know, how does one charming 10 year old know how to spell "appreciate" and not "really"?! I mean, come on, it's one of the 100 Frequency Words that she should have been taught since First Grade!! Oh nevermind, who cares!)
Here's to hoping all of the Mom's out there had a fabulous day and have a wonderful year!!
