TWO MOTHER’S DAYS
As a Scot living in the USA, I feel that I really should be allowed to be worshipped by my offspring on both the British Mother’s Day in March and the American Mother’s Day in May. Does it happen? No, at least not yet. Considering I have to remind them when exactly Mother’s Day is, doesn’t exactly look too promising for a double dose of worshipping. I remain hopeful however. It’s a long life. 🙂
My Plan for my Third Grade’s Mothers
Being the mother of two children, a 14 year old and a 12 year, and a 2 year old Rottweiler, I am more than aware that chief cook and bottle washer are only two of my many roles in their upbringing. (Taxi driver is fast over taking everything else!) I am also acutely aware that the myriad of roles I play is, for the most part, taken for-granted by the aforementioned children….and the dog!
“I Love You the Purplest “, by Barbara Joosse. The craft activity is a fancy-nancy bonnet which I cannot take credit for. It is a fabulous idea that I found it on a parenting website some years ago. The rest is all my own work, as they say.
Watch this space. I’ll update you on the progress of our poetry for Mother’s Day…..as soon as I get moved into my new, temporary, less-noisy classroom.
