Anticipating Mother's Day

Josh has been all about "Mother's Day" since last week. Every day, he would be either talking about what we would do on that day or he'd be making something for Mother's Day.

His school will have a little Mother's Day celebration on Friday and has invited all the mommies to attend. I guess his teachers have been talking to them about the significance of the day. As well, the Playhouse Disney channel has been having all sorts of announcements and tips about what they can do to make Mother's Day special for their mommy. Josh has definitely been paying attention.

The way he'd talk about Mother's Day, you'd think that there's going to be some big celebration. He even asked me for the tape dispenser yesterday because he said that he was going to wrap my presents for Mother's Day. Two of his red wooden blocks from his building set. *Smiles*

Here is a "banner" he made for the Mother's Day party. (I have no idea what party he thinks we're going to have...) He said the black dots are "decorations."

He even made a music sheet for the Mother's Day song that he has learned in his Mandarin class (世上只有妈妈好). He got me to hold his hand for the first two G clefs and he did the third G clef himself. It's funny how he would sing out lines from the song and then he would write the notes down, counting to make sure that he would have one note for each word.

He's been especially sweet lately as well. On Sunday, after I brought out the Mexican rice casserole (a new recipe that I tried), he took one look at it and said, "Wow, Mom. You're the best cook ever." And gave me a big hug. He hadn't even tasted it! He gobbled up his dinner. No drama, no fuss. AND asked for seconds!

It's been Mother's Day for me every day the last few days.

That's awesome.

I love it when they do stuff at school for Mother's Day. It makes the kids feel really important and let's face it, they are the reason for this day!

I love it when kids do their Mother's Day love-notes in school. I still keep mine - I even posted some of them in my site.

I love Josh =D

Happy MOther's Day =D

He's so sweet. And I'm practicing here... is that the song "Only Mom is the Best in the World?" If so, the Tongginator loves that song... though she'd probably change her mind if she translated it. LOL.
