The Mother's Day Lowdown...According to My Son

This past week John-Heath came home with a sweet, albeit telling, worksheet in his folder.  On one side he listed some facts about why he loves me and I love him, such as...I read him books, he loves to hear me sing "Amazing Grace How Sweet the Sound", I work really hard at the middle school, he knows I am smart because I am a librarian, and I make him laugh by tickling him.

And on the reverse he filled out a little questionnaire about me.  Take a look.
Mother's name:  Tyla *****
How old is she?  43
How tall is she?  60 feet
How much does she weigh?  Well, since he thinks I am 60 feet tall I am not even going to tell you what he put down for this answer.
What color is her hair?  brown
What does she cook?  cookies (he must have had to think hard on this one)
What does she do during the day?  Check library
What is her favorite thing to eat?  salad  (I'm guessing that was just an easy word to spell)
What does she like to do for fun?  play spades  (he and I play a game on the computer most every night before we turn out the lights)
What is her favorite thing to do?  play with me

...and my favorite...

What is one thing she says often?  no

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day, spent with your own moms or those sweet gems that gave you the title.  With each passing year I am grateful to be able to spend the day with mine.

P.S.  On a somewhat disgusting sidenote...tomorrow I will get to experience the joy of having my first colonoscopy.  I've been having some issues lately and going to the doctor concerning ovarian issues has somehow led to this.  I have heard there's not much to a colonoscopy and I am hoping I heard the truth.  I do know the preparation for it leaves much to be desired.  First of all, I am starving.  Secondly, while my bathroom is a mere few feet from my bed, I am wishing it were smaller.  You know, every step counts when you've had 64 ounces of Miralax-infused Gatorade.

I always know I can count on you for a smile! Loved John Heath's Mon perspective. :) Praying for a good report from your Dr. visit tomorrow.
