Mother's Day "Tea"

 Today was the Mother's Day Tea (minus any tea) at Snug's school.  He was so excited for me to come, without any siblings or daycare kids.  He requested that I wear a dress and "jewels".  Cracked me up.

When we arrived the moms all lined up and then were escorted to our tables by our kids.  The tables were decorated with items the kids had made, including a place mat, small wooden flowers he had painted, and a writing he had done.  Snug was delighted that there were dinner mints on the table and proceeded to eat all of his and then "share" mine immediately.  He kept telling me it was nice to have dessert first.

All of the kids went up front and sang some songs for the program they had prepared. Snug was more preoccupied with his tie than his songs, but it was really cute nonetheless.

Snug's writing made me laugh.  The regular print is what the prompt was, the bold is his answer.

My mom is so kind.
I love my mom more than Rosebud.
My mom likes to swim.
My mom cooks the best oatmeal.
My mom likes to watch PBS Kids on TV.
My mom's favorite color is blue.
My mom likes to eat grapes.
My mom likes to eat at McDonald's.
I'd buy my mom a hot dog.

Thank you little Snug for a wonderful day.  Sorry mommy wore nylons, I am just now realizing it looked BAD!  I was cold  :o)
