I Love You The Orangest

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

Hayley made this present for me at school.


In case you can’t read it, it says (bold are her words)…

I love you the Orangest

I love you the color of a orange carrot

The sound of the flower blowing

The feeling of the sun warming your heart

I love you like having puppies

The warmth of the sun shining

The way we plant pretty flowers

And the way you love me 

I love you the Orangest. 

I’m thinking she might have a future in card writing. Do you think Hallmark will work an 8 year old?

To help everyone recover from Mother’s Day we’ve got a Raspberry Lemon Drop Martini recipe over at One Martini with fresh raspberries and fresh lemon juice.

And…if you want to smile check out my post from last week with Siri’s words of wisdom and Layla’s foul language.

    I do believe Hayley as a future as a card writer. ‘Having puppies’ made me giggle.

    Ooh the Fairy HobMother has been busy!

    Oh YOU!!!!! Your daughter really loves Orange, which is very cool since she loves YOU as much. I think it’s amazing that the Fairy Hobmother came to visit you, what a perfect way to celebrate such a special day. Can’t wait to see what drink you get to make with the moola! She knows how cool you are and your wordy daughter does too. Love u xoxoxo

      Thank you Kir! I’ve never heard my daughter say before that she loves orange but based on this note I’d say she does.

    Having puppies. Oh my gosh, I almost broke my recliner I was laughing so hard.

    Maybe the orangest refers to your golden tan? So cute, and puppies are love, so that totally makes sense! I would love a visit from the Fairy Hobmother, I’d spend it on baking supplies, or books.

      My golden tan hasn’t happened yet for this year but I’m sure it will soon now that the weather is warming up.

    Aww that is so sweet and cute! I love when kids fill in the blanks on things like that. It’s always amazing what words they use. Bridge made me a card at school that has a secret message if you fold it the right way. I still cannot manage to fold it properly without her help.

    • Jessica Torres says:

      That’s cute that it’s got a secret message. Maybe she should write down directions for you on how to fold it.

    I absolutely LOVE it! And, see, she does love planting pretty flowers! Especially if you do most of the work :)

    I love all her references to the sun…especially – “The feeling of the sun warming your heart.”

    That’s fabulous and we all know exactly what she meant.

    Orange is a pretty awesome colour. And puppies! What can be better than puppies, I ask? Great card, Haley!

    Awesome! Clearly orange is her favorite color!? Or do you need a tanning bed intervention?

    I love what some schools do for Mother’s Day – and this one was adorable. As was the sentiment – I love you the Orangest . . . love it!

  28. So amazingly awesome. Having puppies? I’m thinking that would be like having a baby. Times 8. Kind of a physical hell. But the sentiment is awesome.
