Computer Wrcer.

I got this from my son on Mother's Day. The one in kindergarten. The one who likes to clean my shower (for his allowance and more sancks).  He's pretty adorkable and I love him a lot. Despite this display of his skills, he's actually changed so much since the beginning of the school year.  Seriously.
 
But I think I need to ask the teacher to step it up just a bit in the spelling department. 
 
Let me translate for you:
 
My name - it's not "Don."   Don makes me think of Don Knots and that kind of creeps me out a little bit.
 
My age? It's SO off. Like by 10 years. Fine. He's right, but FFS kid, thanks for sharing. 
 
Oh - re: this age thing, and any number in general? The kid is obsessed with numbers. He memorizes everyone's age, school bus numbers, room numbers, numbers of teeth lost (his and friend's), goals in soccer or hockey. He's always reminding me what the clock says and what time he can get up or has to go to bed. How many days of school they've had and how many are left.  If he's Rainman smart with numbers, I'll be psyched. Numbers jobs are where it's at, people. Accounting, math, engineering. He'll always have a job. 
 
Which brings me to being a "Computer Wrcer." I've had the pleasure of bringing him to work when he's sick and we have zero kid coverage, and I sit here at my desk typing away. Or adding up numbers with lightening speed on that 10-Key! Accountants RULE! What? We're awesome.
 
Anyway - so he's seen me at work, and whenever we're at home and I know the boys are zoned out with Noggin or G.I.Joe, I try to do picture projects on the laptop. I tell them I'm working. Shut up, you lie to your kids, too.
 
Moving on.
 
"Good driver."  I literally laughed out loud at his take on my driving. So did Mr. Kiss. He then asked our kid if he was blind. 
 
My favorite food is not pizza, but we get it every Friday night. I'm sort of sad he doesn't remember that I rarely eat it with them - and instead munch rabbit food, but hell - if the kid has memories of Friday Night Pizza and his Momma is sitting there with them, that's OK by me.  Favorite food is grapes, by the way. #wine
 
He loves me because...I bring him to Sookr. No - this is not another True Blood novel. Not Sookie. He's referring to "soccer" which recently started up again. My kid doesn't love me for all the piggy back rides I give him? Or the pictures I color with him? Or the books we read together? Or for doing his LAUNDRY? Nope. Bringing him to sookr.  I guess he aims low.
 
At least he got the picture right: pink chubby cheeks, red lips, blue eyes and stringy hair.

If I took a self portrait right now, you'd see he got it just right. And he loves me anyway.

When I see "Wrcer?"

I think of Worcester.

It always cracks me up to find out what our kids feel about us (besides all the love, right?)

My son once wrote that my favorite thing to do was "laundry." Wha???

He said, "You do it all the time."

Yep. Totally made sense to him. At least he didn't say "drink wine."

Which would have been more accurate but also embarrassing. Kind of.

Then my daughter drew a picture of me watching TV for her preschool Mother's Day celebration.

A proud moment for sure.

One of many. Which is why I drink wine.

(p.s. for kindergarten, his spelling kicks ass.)

spelling things correctly is almost as hard as getting your shoes on the right feet. I still can't do the latter.

Adorkable really is the bomb. One of my fave words. :) And no, all the good and wonderful things you do will go unnoticed, but those random things get remembered. No pressure there. His spelling is GREAT for kdg, by the way. And after seeing that drawing of you, you're totally outed.

This really is too cute for words.

Mmmmmm, wine. I need to bring home a box tonight (because I'm #classy).

My kids don't even know what "work" is yet, but I still pull the "I have to be on the computer to work" card with them.

It is wonderful that he has so many wonderful things to say. My friend got that she walks around the house as her job.

Thank you for your wonderful comment on Shell's post. Each stage and moment holds the opportunity of becoming a memory that may not return. Though there are moments I want to pause forever.

My son's class did this too. Buddy is way into numbers as well and he got my age right. His good friend? Did not. He put down that his mom was 95 years old. I almost died.

I have a wonderful comment about those big lips but I think I'll keep it to myself since it's a little dirty...but I'll tell you it's 3 words and the first one starts with D, second S, maybe you can figure out what the last word starts with...

This card is adorable. He loves his MommaKiss alot.

Stopping by from Kmamas. So funny. I have a numbers guy, too. Last night, he counted the gray circles at Target(the are on some but not all of the price stickers on the shelves), 117!!! He's almost 7. Glory.

I'm old, so I am hiding behind that when I ask, What is FFS?

So sweet, love how they spell when they are little. I don't usually eat the pizza either but it is my favorite food because it means I'm not cooking.

Oh this totally tugged at the heart strings - now I just get nasty texts from my daughter with poor grammar and words that aren't really words because I won't let her go home with so-and-so after school. Ugh. Cherish every moment. And I think it is AWESOME that he thinks pizza is your favorite food because he obviously loves Friday Nights.

Spelling is overrated, especially when you like numbers. Me? I hate numbers, therefore I spell correctly. I gotta get something right!

Tht is so cute and so funny. My son filled something similar out at his preschool (he's 4) and said my hair color was "gray".

And I thought I paid my hairstylist well to keep me blonde.

D@mn it.

Oh, I think it's adorable! And his spelling is so good for kindergarten. I can't seem to spell anything right myself. :)

According to my daughter's mother's day card my favorite thing to do is laundry. Who knew!

This is adorable. I love, love, love this sort of thing. It breaks through my sarcastic shell and hits me in my soft spot. No, not that one. The other one.

Ohhh this is too cute!! I can't wait for all the handmade goodies my son will bring home to me in the next couple of years.

Oh, wait. That would mean he would have to start school first...

We're getting there. ;)
