Preschool Mother's Day Tea

Friday was a special day for me...


Mr. J and I got to spend a little "alone" time together:)  I got to attend his Mother's Day Tea at preschool....just J and me.


He was looking a bit scruffy on Friday....in desperate need of a haircut...and coming down with those yucky May allergies...but NEVER without a smile.  I LOVE that about him.


After some tea and muffins, his little classmates sang to all the mommies.  I had heard J singing these songs at home while he was playing (without even knowing he was singing them:)  It was supposed to be top secret.  The songs couldn't have been sweeter...the words couldn't' have meant more.


Oh...that little J....he can definitely be a pill some days....he can definitely test the limits....but for the most part he is the HAPPIEST, FRIENDLIEST little boy...and trust me when I say you will never meet another 4-year old with more personality.  What a HUGE gift he has been to our family.....how INCREDIBLY lucky I am to be his Mama!  God knew how much I needed that little Joseph...There isn't a day that goes by that I don't thank God for trusting him to me.  And there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of the Mama who gave this sweetest gift to me.  She knew how incredible he was even then...and yet she trusted me...and allowed me the honor of loving him, caring for him, and watching him grow.  I am humbled every day by this gift...


J made me a book describing me....He said that I had brown hair, brown eyes, was 18 years old (YIPPEEE), loved to play legos with him, loved pizza and tacos, and that my favorite movie was "Cars." He wrote that he loves his Mama because "She loves me,"  OH BOY is he ever right about that!!!


They made us "Queen of the Day" chair covers...


And flower pots and flowers made out of their own handprints.


His teachers this year have been the sweetest...most loving teachers you can imagine.  The crafts and projects they have done have been out of this world.  We have been so fortunate that our little guy has had such an amazing year....I am so grateful that these teachers have helped Joseph to LOVE school...I am grateful for their dedication and energy.  And yet they would always tell me that THEY were the lucky ones to have J in their class.....so incredibly sweet....   They just got it...they completely understood how much this little boy means to me....and they loved him like I do....   Now if I could just keep him 4 forever...
