Daddy: Meri what is something you love about your mommy?
Meri: Rainbow ice cream! (whispered intensely)
Daddy: Mommy feeds you rainbow ice cream?
Meri: Yeah!!! (not whispered)
Caleb: Orange slices. I mean I love she feeds me oranges.
*Jacob raising hand*
Daddy: Jacob we’re going youngest to oldest.
Jacob: But everyone takes mine.
Katey: I love that mommy gives us hugs and kisses and makes stuff for us. Well, not sewing stuff. But she makes the food!
Drewby: I love mom because her smile. It’s really big!
Autumn: Yes? I like mom because she’s awesome. I can’t think of all the ways. …Yoga! And she’s a really good cook.
Josh: I love mom because she gives the kids an education before they go to public school. I also love mom for her Chicago deep dish pizza. And I also say whatever Jacob is going to say.
Jacob: I hereby forbid you from annexing my comment. But there is someone that is older than Josh and younger than me that needs to comment.
Duke: I love it when she gives me bacon fat.
Jacob: My turn…
Autumn: ooh, I’m excited to hear Jacob’s.
Jacob: I love mom because she’s always willing to lend me a hand. Whether it’s math homework or doing my chore or whatever. And I don’t mean whatever disrespectfully. It means she’s always there.
Daddy: I love mommy because she is willing to do the hard things that a mommy needs to do sometime to take care of her family. And she will always, well, almost always – give the last special treat away to someone. She also rarely thinks about herself before someone else – she’s selfless and I love that about her.
Caleb: And one more thing I like mom for… she let me stir the pancake batter today!
