from Monk (a fill-in-the-blank note from school. The words he filled in, I've marked in bold.)
Happy Mother's Day, Mommy!
You're as beautiful as a rose.
I like the way you cook like a chef.
You're as kind as an angel.
With you I feel loved.
You're as sweet as a kitten.
You are special to me because you love me like a lion.
You're as loving as a puppy.
My favorite line? "You love me like a lion." Yes, I do!
