In the Eyes of First Graders

Since Mother's Day is right around the corner, my first graders made cards to honor their mothers. On the card it has several things such as a picture they drew along with a letter to their mom, a story to honor their mom and a little questionar for them to fill out about their mom. Some things were: my mom's favorite color is______her favorite food is______I think she is funny when she______ . But last but not least......my mom weighs______. I especially found this one hilarious because each time they reached this question they would all come up and ask me "What if I don't know how much my mom weighs?" In return I would ask them to just guess. Well each time their answer would be something like "I bet she weighs about 25?" or something along the lines of "Well I know my mom is trying to lose weight so I would guess 41!" Each time their answer made me laugh so I'm thinking that the next time I have a "fat day" I'll just got ask my kids...."How much do you think I weigh?"

I think we should put together a book of all the funny things that the kids say. It's so hard sometimes, because you don't want the kids to think you're making fun of them, but then they say such funny things I can't help but laugh at them!

That is a great plan! I have never asked my kids that question before! I will have to try that when I came back to help me feel better about this baby fat.
