Mother's Day Poetry Slam

On Thursday, Lily's class had a Mother's Day Poetry Slam. For extra authenticity, it was held at a neighborhood coffee shop - we ran out all the 20-year-old tattooed hipsters. The poems were all very sweet and often very funny.

One boy's poem thanked his mom for taking care of him at the grocery store. Several kids included the word "texting" when describing their moms, which got a good laugh.

Mom, by Lily
You're sweet
You're kind
You're lovable
You're nice
You're my mom and I love you

After each child read a poem, they presented their moms with a flower. I popped mine in my pigtail and forgot about it, which meant I wore it to a work meeting that afternoon. Whoops.

Happy Mother's Day to all my mom friends. May your day be filled with lovely poems, mangled flowers and lots of hugs and kisses.

I love to learn what my kids like about me. It's nice to hear that they notice. Happy Mother's Day!

Aww short and sweet and no mention of texting! Hope you had a good day, it's nice to be pampered now and then, even if it is only once a year.

That's a truly wonderful pic of the two of you. Her eyes are captivating. Happy Momma Day!!

Wouldn't it be funny to find out that someone at work DID notice the flower in your hair and it reminded them of mothers day and prompted them to buy some flowers for their own mother. The ripple effect of seemingly insignificant things can be amazing. Hope you had a great day.
