For Mothers' Day, Nico gave me three gifts he made in school:
- a big, red (my favorite color) construction paper card
The front said, "Happy Mothers day!!" in giant letters with a balloon drawn next to the words. The inside had instructions: "Draw a pitchure, and I'll draw a pitchure!" Then there was the personal message, written in pencil:
Happy Mothers day!
Hope you have a speacteaculer day.
Hope your not sick too!
- a beaded keychain
Nico threaded beads of my favorite color (red) and his favorite colors (blue and black) for this project.
- a letter
Nico wrote a message to me in pencil that read:
Happy Mother's Day!
I love you because yore my S.P.S.S. [Super Pretty Super Star]. You are the best mom in the world because yore beautiful.
Next to his signature was a picture of a heart, with a line bissecting it with "Mommy" on on the left half and "Nico" on the right. On one side of the page, he had another interactive area where I was told "(Do it yorself)" and "Draw yourself" next to his "(Do it myself) and "Draw myself". The idea, I guess, was to have a self-portrait of me next to a self-portrait of him. Then there was a picture of a big broken heart with my name and his name on the ripped heart, with a slash through it. I take it to mean "no broken hearts allowed". This makes sense. Whenever Nico is pleased with me, he declares, "You're my superstar!" When he's upset with me, he whispers in my ear, "You're my heartbreaker."
I checked Yes.
