There were Mother’s Day cards to collect at preschool pick-up. They’d asked every child to answer the question ‘I love my Mummy because…’ and stuck the answers to hand-painted pictures.
I got a preview of other kids’ answers as my four-year-old’s keyworker flicked through the pile:
I love my Mummy because… “She tickles me and it’s funny”
I love my Mummy because… “She is beautiful”
I love my Mummy because… “I love her”
And then we came to my son’s card:
Added to his assessment of how I spend my time when he’s at preschool, I think they are building up a fine picture of my parenting technique.
Happy Mother’s Day!
