This is the kids first real Mother’s Day.  Last year they had been home about a month, so their English was poor and I don’t think they really got it. I asked the kids where they wanted to take their mom for Mother’s Day.  Here’s their responses (names withheld to protect the guilty):

  • Chuck E. Cheese
  • Disneyland
  • The tomato and flower garden — “Where’s that?” I asked — Our back yard
  • Blue (I guess you can guess who suggested this one)

All were rejected.  Instead we’re going strawberry picking.
