I had a lovely Mother's Day.
Mother's Day is always a little bittersweet for me. I miss my Mom. I miss her so much. Especially this past year. I could have really used her. Sometimes a girl just needs her Mom.
Such is life. Not much to be done about that but deal with it.
The fact remains my children HAVE their Mom and they would like to honor that.
My day started by being woken up at 5:30 by Sweet Pea. Even though she had instructions to go downstairs and watch TV and to NOT WAKE ANYONE if she got up first, somewhere between bed time and the crack of unearthly dawn she forgot those instructions.
She did not wish me Happy Mother's Day.
Ungrateful brat. Doesn't she know I gave her life?
But waking up at 5:30 means Squishy DIDN'T wake me up at 2 for our feeding/pumping schedule.
This little girl
When I went down stairs I discovered this by my pumping stuff
My crafty Pork Chop had made me duct tape flower pens. I love them! The most impressive part is she used her baby sitting money to buy the supplies to make my present. I love that she didn't use her money to buy me something outright. She used her money to buy supplies and she MADE me something. She rocks.
The Greatest came home from his long night bearing presents
Roses, doughnuts, and dark chocolate hot chocolate with french vanilla creamer. What more can a girl ask for. He truly knows the way to my heart. If not through yarn, you can access my love with doughnuts.
My day was rounded out with a penguin from Bird...
(She told me his arms are extra long for giving hugs)
And the obligatory hand print from Sweet Pea
Meaty may have given me a nod and said "Hi Mom." Which is practically a declaration for his undying love and admiration for me as his role model of what womanhood should look like. In boy language it's the same thing.
I managed to steal a few minutes to sit and knit
So overall not too bad a day.
