I knew that I wanted to post something for Mother’s Day, but I hadn’t yet decided quite what to do when I received a lovely email from my friend, Patti, who also teaches the preschool choir for me at our church.  I thought it was so cute that I wanted to share. 

I’m always careful to try and find authors and sources in order to correctly attribute what I post, but Patti didn’t know where it came from, other than a “Fwd” from another friend.  This was one of those ubiquitous “Fwd” we all find in our inboxes and spam folders, and most frequently just delete. 

I still wanted to share it here.  I don’t know who the author/creator is, but I did note a reference on one panel to 123greetings.com.  I’ve searched their files, but this must be something from a previous year.  In any case, I want to share this with all moms everywhere, whether by blood, marriage, adoption, or just plain friend.  Happy Mother’s Day to you all!  🙂

Shared on our Kindermusik educators’ forum:

Today in Imagine That, we were doing a bell play-along with three bell jingles to Jingle Bells.  Sarah, age 4, sitting next to me, was looking positively blissful, and I thought she was just enjoying the song like everyone else.

She turns to me with the biggest smile and says “so many angels!”

I asked her what she meant, and she pointed to all of the bells jingling and said “my mama says,’ whenever a bell rings, a new angel gets its wings!’ “

So many angels, indeed…

It’s a Wonderful Life - a *wonderful* movie!

Thank you, Wendy Jones, for sharing this beautiful moment with us!

Christmas 2007


Christmas Control2

Dear Santa,

I’ve been a good mom all year.

I’ve fed, cleaned and cuddled my children on demand, visited their doctor’s office more than my own doctor’s, and sold sixty-two cases of candy bars to raise money to plant a shade tree on the school playground.

I was hoping you could spread my list out over several Christmases, since I had to write this letter with my son’s red crayon, on the back of a receipt, in the laundry room between cycles, and who knows when I’ll find anymore free time in the next 18 years.

Here are my Christmas wishes:

  • I’d like a pair of legs that don’t ache (in any color, except purple, which I already have) and arms that don’t hurt or flap in the breeze; but are strong enough to pull my screaming child out of the candy aisle in the grocery store.
  • I’d also like a waist, since I lost mine somewhere in the seventh month of my last pregnancy.
  • If you’re hauling big ticket items this year, I’d like fingerprint resistant windows and a radio that only plays adult music; a television that doesn’t broadcast any programs containing talking animals; and a refrigerator with a secret compartment behind the crisper where I can hide to talk on the phone.
  • On the practical side, I could use a talking doll that says, “Yes, Mommy” to boost my parental confidence, along with two kids who don’t fight and three pairs of jeans that will zip all the way up without the use of power tools.
  • I could also use a recording of Tibetan monks chanting “Don’t eat in the living room” and “Take your hands off your brother”, because my voice seems to be just out of my children’s hearing range and can only be heard by the dog.
  • If it’s too late to find any of these products, I’d settle for enough time to brush my teeth and comb my hair in the same morning, or the luxury of eating food warmer than room temperature without it being served in a styrofoam container. 

If you don’t mind, I could also use a few Christmas miracles to brighten the holiday season.

Would it be too much trouble to declare ketchup a vegetable? It will clear my conscience immensely.

It would be helpful if you could coerce my children to help around the house without demanding payment as if they were the bosses of an organized crime family.

Well, Santa, the buzzer on the dryer is ringing and my son saw my feet under the laundry room door. I think he wants his crayon back.

Have a safe trip and remember to leave your wet boots by the door and come in to dry off so you don’t catch cold.

Help yourself to cookies on the table but don’t eat too many or leave crumbs on the carpet.

Yours Always,


P.S. One more thing …you can cancel all my requests if you can keep my children young enough to believe in Santa.

 Funny Turkey

My Turkey
(To the Tune of: I’m a Little Teapot)

I have a turkey, big and fat.

He spreads his wings
(fan hands at hip)

And walks like that.
(strut back and forth).

His daily corn he would not miss,
(pretend to eat corn).

And when he talks, he sounds like this
( gobble, gobble, gobble).

Pumpkin Pie

(Count off on fingers, then hold out both hands face up)

Five little pumpkins sitting on the ground

The first one said, “I’m big, orange and round!”

The second one said, “I’m fresh off the vine!”

The third one said, “I taste divine!”

The fourth one said, “I’m ready to be tasted!”

The fifth one said, “Bake my seeds so they’re not wasted!”

Someone from the kitchen picked them up and we know why….

The five little pumpkins all became Pumpkin Pie!

I love this book, but I especially love hearing Jerry Seinfeld read it himself.  Parents, this is for the child in you!  And also especially for my son, Matthew.  😉


Thanks, Christa! 😀

We talk a lot about “steady beat” in our Kindermusik classes, and how important it is to give your child opportunities to experience it themselves.

Here’s one example you won’t forget very soon!
