A Mother's Work
By Belinda Walker
  

1     "Sunday is Mother's Day, and we are going to celebrate with an Awards Program," said Mrs. Carter. "Each mom will receive an award for all of the special things she does."
 
2     "Mommies sometimes have two jobs," continued Mrs. Carter. "Each student will tell about their mommy and the work their mommy does at home or on her job outside the home," said Mrs. Carter.
 
3     Jimmy raised his hand and told Mrs. Carter, "But my mom has no job; she stays home all day. My daddy is the only one at my house with a job. He is a salesman at a computer store," said Jimmy.
 
4     "Jimmy, I think you will be in for a big surprise about your mom," said Mrs. Carter, laughing. Mrs. Carter gave Jimmy and the other students further instructions. "Take time to ask your mommy questions," said Mrs. Carter. "But don't just ask questions. Watch your Mommy when you are at home," said Mrs. Carter.
 
5     The day of the Awards Program had finally come. "Class, you will all take turns introducing your mommies to the class," said Mrs. Carter.
