26 Things He Likes About Me (Make that 13)
As I was sorting out the tons of paperwork and stuff my kids took home from school, a piece of paper caught my eye, and melted my heart...
First, to those of you who do not know yet...my son has dyslexia, and writing his thoughts down on paper is an enormous and painful task for him. Apparently, on Mother's Day his teacher asked her students to write 26 things each of them love about their moms. they have to use an A to Z acronyms. Well, my son couldn't come up with 26, but the 13 he had written is good enough for me...in fact, it's more than enough. He did not give me the note because it wasn't finish. He's sort of a perfectionist, and if it's not done according to what he wanted it to be, he'd rather not give it...
I'm glad I found this half-done note. I love it, and I love my son! Here it is. I kept the dyslexic spelling for memories' sake, and the italics comment are mine:
