Look What I Got for Mother's Day!

(Usually I post Henry's writing on his blog, Otter World, but he wrote this for me and I'm very proud of it!)

My Mom
by Henry

My Mom is completely super
She is great to me
She gets me things I want
And is as happy as can be.

She helps with my homework
And she tells me I'm bright
I can tell she likes me
And I can tell you she's right.

She nags me to tell dad
That we need a bunny
She never understands
That a bunny is too funny.

She always depends on me
To help take care of the dogs
She never understands
That I really want a hog!

She is sometimes down
She is my mother
She is sometimes not nice
And I still love her.

I like that Henry seems to have some understanding of the complexity of human relationships. Some idea that they aren't ever perfect but that doesn't mean they aren't great. Neat kid.

Happy belated Mother's Day! :)
