Little Sarah Bonomo said her mother’s favorite food is “shrimp and apples.” So that’s what Jessica Bonomo was served at the Work of Art Learning Center preschool’s Mother’s Day celebration on Thursday at St. Anthony’s Center.

The 19 Learning Center students, who are from 2 /12 to 5 years old, partied with their mothers and grandmothers at the center, where the moms were served what their children said were their mom’s favorite foods.

Moms ate mac ‘n’ cheese, spaghetti, pizza and cereal.

The moms and grandmoms also got gifts made by the students - gifts like painted flower pots with mom’s picture in it, hand prints of their kids and place mats.

Students filled out questionnaires about their moms and were asked how old their moms were. One student said she is “60.” She’s really 30.

Another said mom is “old.” Pressed for a number the student wouldn’t budge, insisting his mom is “just old.”
