My Mother's Day gifts

April greeted me with 3 Carnations, which she did with craft papers at her school just now. She said 3 Carnations means "I" "Love" "You" . Awww, how sweet!
 Later, May ran to me with a pot of flowers card that she made at school too.
When I read what May wrote for me, I feel so happy.
It’s the small things that they did that meant the most to me as a mother.
I stumbled upon a very interest link yesterday. I would like to record the top ten things children really want their parents to do with them here. It will be a reminder for myself and also all of you.
  1. Come into my bedroom at night, tuck me in and sing me a song. Also tell me stories about when you were little.
  2. Give me hugs and kisses and sit and talk with me privately.
  3. Spend quality time just with me, not with my brothers and sisters around.
  4. Give me nutritious food so I can grow up healthy.
  5. At dinner talk about what we could do together on the weekend.
  6. At night talk to me about about anything; love, school, family etc.
  7. Let me play outside a lot.
  8. Cuddle under a blanket and watch our favorite TV show together.
  9. Discipline me. It makes me feel like you care.
  10. Leave special messages in my desk or lunch bag.

To all mothers out there, Happy Mother's Day.
