Mommy is good at me!

Remembering that Father’s Day follows Mother’s Day, I thought I’d earn some points with Mommy by trying to do something special with the kids for her.

So I took Eva and Hudson aside, and quietly asked them what they liked best about Mommy. Hudson could only think of one thing, “Mama na-na (nurse)!”

Eva thought the best thing about Mommy was her pretty dresses. That was nice, but not exactly Mother’s Day caliber, so I rephrased: “What makes you like Mommy?” “God makes me like her!” Hmm…ok.

Feeling very original, I thought maybe we could do better drawing a picture. Eva started her impression of Mommy, but soon called me to look. “Daddy, does this Mommy look scary?”

“Umm…yeah. Wanna try another Mommy?”

This time she forgot and accidentally put a beard on both Daddy and Mommy, which very nearly brought on tears.

Feeling pretty well stumped, I gave it one last shot and asked Eva what Mommy was good at.  She beamed, and replied, “Mommy is good at me!”

And the more I think about it, the more that seems to sum it up.  Anna is good at Eva, and Hudson, and Daddy, and Nanny.  She’s mastered the thing where you put others before yourself.  Where from the time you wake up, to the time you finally fall back into bed, you’re thinking about, caring for, serving, and loving other people.

There are quite a few things that I hope to someday do almost as well as Anna does, and near the top of that list would have to be selflessness.

Anna, I admire you, and we all LOVE you.  Hope your Mother’s Day is special.  🙂

    That’s really sweet. I love the drawings, and yes, Anna is good at Eva, and Hudson, and Steven, and Nanny. She is a precious mother, wife, daughter-in-law, and great-granddaughter-in-law. She can’t be beat, and we love her.

    I treasure the drawings, the kind words, and the hearts that they came from. I love you!
