Jared and I had a “mommy and me” homework assignment a few weeks ago, coming up with two colors that we liked and describing things about them. We were supposed to pick things that reminded Jared of our times together. This is the resulting poem, my mother’s day gift this year.
Mom, I love you the blackest
I love you the color of terrible Darth Vader destroying a machine
I love you the color of the enormous Death Star where Darth Vader lives.
Mom, I love you the greenest
I love you the color of beautiful trees that we try to save
I love you the color of numbered highway signs on the times we travel
I love you the color of amazing Yoda using the force to move rocks.
Connor looked offended when I asked him if he’d made me a card. “I gave you four hours of peace and quiet this morning, mom! Isn’t that what you wanted?” Heh. Gotta love him, right?
