As an education reporter, I cover a lot of different issues, but one of the biggest perks is talking to students in the classroom. The elementary-aged ones can be just so darn cute! On occasion I'll get an assignment that basically equates to student reactions. I recently completed one of these assignments for Mother's Day.
Typically I wouldn't cross-mingle my work life and the blog, but I thought it was cute and lighthearted enough to be OK in this situation. And YOLO. Enjoy. :)
What do you love about your mom?
"She’s beautiful, just without her makeup."
What's your favorite thing your mom does for you?
"I love my mom because she always takes care of us. She gives us toys, clothes, and takes us to McDonalds. I love that place."
"She feeds me and gives me water."
"She takes me to my ice skating lessons and she feeds me chocolate chip pancakes everyday."
"Whenever I make messes, she cleans them up. Sometimes I leave my toys out. She tells me to (clean) but I don’t."
Why is it important to celebrate Mother's Day?
"I think it’s important to have Mother’s Day because she doesn’t have to deal with my brother killing me and we should thank moms because they were there for all our lives."
"It gives mothers excitement for having a happy time with her children."
"I think it’s important because you don’t help her much, so you can help her on Mother’s Day."
"It’s like her birthday, so we celebrate it."
How do you plan to celebrate Mother's Day?
"I'm going to scare her." And then give her a balloon.
Aren't kids the cutest? I can only imagine what I would've said if I were asked those questions as a seven-year-old. Hah.
