HUGHESTOWN — Students in Renee Shotwell’s kindergarten class are excited to give gifts to their moms on Sunday.

“It’s Mother’s Day,” said 6-year-old Cody Jackson.

It’s not just a day named after Mom, it’s a day to thank Mom, or at least that’s what 6-year-old Gabriella Kotyk said.

“It’s a day where you give something to your mom,” she said.

The students already had gifts in mind, but when asked what they would buy their moms with a cool $1 million, they had some other ideas.

Maggie Gruber, 6, said she would hire outside help to assist her mom in household chores.

“I would get someone like a maid that cleans up and she can just cook and then she can sit down and relax,” she said.

Nathan Drouse, 6, said he would spend his money to have his mom’s clothes washed for her while Judith Stewart, 6, said she would get her mom a big box of chocolates.

“You shouldn’t have said that; I’m hungry now,” responded Garrett Santiago, 6.

George Donnelly, 6, thought of a more sentimental item to buy his mom.

“I would buy my mommy a picture frame for me and my mommy,” he said.

All moms are important — including Mom’s mom. Some students offered Mother’s Day gift ideas for the grandmothers in their lives.

Ava Frame, 6, would buy her grandma a box of chocolates, but some students came up with some more inventive gifts for their grandmothers.

“I would get her a motorcycle,” said 5-year-old Jack Boone.

“I’d buy her a firetruck,” said Skylar Wall, 5.

“I’d buy my grandma a police car,” said Gavin Werner, 6.

Sticking with motor vehicles, 6-year-olds Alex Sowden and Ricardo Nunes said they would each buy their grandmother a Jeep.

Aunts also got recognition from the students.

Gavin Jacek, 5, said he’d buy his aunt a pet of her choosing, and Alissa Pointek, 5, said she would buy her aunt a dog.

Lane Wesley, 6, wanted to keep it simple and buy his aunt some flowers.

Six-year-old Christopher Shovlin had a fun gift idea in mind for his aunt.

“I’d buy my aunt a dune buggy,” he said.

Santiago thought about buying his aunt some dinner.

“I’d get her a hamburger,” he said.

The students were curious as to what their teacher would buy for her mom.

Some suggested Shotwell should get her mom diamonds or a certificate to a salon, but Shotwell had other ideas in mind for what to buy her mom with $1 million.

“How about a vacation around the world?” she said.
