Dylan's Mother's Day Tea

Once you become a mom, there are few things as special as the things your children do to honor you.  Sometimes it's the most simple gifts and moments that mean the most!

Yesterday I attended the Mother's Day Tea that Dylan's 2nd Grade class was hosting.  Dylan's teacher goes out of her way to involve the parents, whether it's with a Thanksgiving Feast, a Mother's Day Tea, or a Father's Day Coffee. 

Dylan met me at his classroom door, and ushered me to my seat (his desk).  The classroom was decorated so nicely, with flower garland strung in the doorway,  and handmade flowers hanging from the ceiling.  The desks were covered with pink tablecloths and set with cards, gifts, flowers, and cookies.   A Mother's Day card signed by all the students hung on the Promethean Board. 

The kids immediately lined up at the front of the classroom, where they read the book "Love You Forever"  (which makes me cry when I'm NOT pregnant!!!), sang songs to us, and recited quotes that mothers say.

The kids then presented their moms with flowers that they had hidden behind their backs, and served us tea and cookies. 

Dylan was so excited to show me the gifts he had made for me!  He decorated a flower pot filled with pretty flowers, and made me a keychain.  Inside his decorated Mother's Day card/folder, was a Mother's Day storybook filled with pictures he drew of me and fill-in-the-blanks, a picture of him on a flower frame, a decorated paper tea pot holding a tea bag, and a fill-in-the-blank questionnaire.  Some noteworthy things?  I am prettier than a flower and he wouldn't trade me for Halo Reach!  He did say I weighed 140 pounds, but he also said I was 6'9" so I guess that makes me tall and skinny!  It was the sweetest gift!

After that, we sat together, drinking tea and eating cookies!

Dylan was blessed with an amazing teacher this year, and you can bet that I'll be requesting her for Lexie!

Dylan was so happy to have me there, and just as excited that he was able to leave a half hour early with me!

It was a great afternoon spent with the boy who made me a mom.  I love him so much!
