When I picked Eli up on Friday from Prep,
the other mothers and I were having a chat as the
kids played on the playground.
One of us rummaged through a backpack to find
a tidy parcel all wrapped up with this blurb on the front.
Soon we had all found ours and we had a great laugh reading them out
and comparing our kids versions of our lives.
Tia's mum, was mortified that she was described as 39 years old
when really she is much younger, Lachlan's mum had 3 years added to her age
and all she does is "lay on the couch."
And then I read out Eli's version and mine took the cake.
Apparently I'm 100! And looking good!
Also noodles and pasta are Eli's favourite foods.
And I do not own a yellow top hat.
I must say, the teacher and teacher aids who
sat and wrote out each child's "story"
would have laughed hard too.
If only life were as simple as it seems through their eyes.
Happy Mother's Day.
