The above photo is what Hayley made me at school, it made me cry. Then just when I thought I had a grip on reality, she presented me with the poem that she made. It goes like this:
M IS FOR MY MOM THAT MAKES ME BANANA BREAD
O IS FROM MY ONE AND ONLY MOM
T IS FOR THE TIMES THAT WE PLAY BARBIES
H IS FOR HELPING HER MAKE COOKIES
E IS FOR EACH DAY WE MAKE LUNCH
R IS FOR READING WITH HER EVERY NIGHT
TOGETHER IT SPELLS MOTHER WHO I LOVE SO MUCH!
Well, here it is - Mother's Day once again. My day here has been wonderful. I got to sleep in until 7:30am to which I woke up with "Happy Mudder's day mommy" spoken to me in sweet 2 year old language. Coffee was made when I came downstairs and my darling hubby had the news on for me (I love the weekend news!). Roger picked up an overtime shift today and so Quinn and I walked him part way to work stopping at the park on the way home for a ride on the slide. Quinn had a ride down as well.
I was blessed to meet my ex-mother-in-law/now- a- great- friend for lunch at Adrienne's Tea Garden at Mattick's Farm, so all us girls (me, Hayley, Quinn and Carole) had a great chin wag and a lovely lunch together. Went to a local organic produce market after (they even sell gluten-free things there!!!) and then dropped Hayley and Carole off for a dinner together and Quinn and I picked Roger up. He had a beautiful day lily for me! So nice and a wonderful surprise too.
Tonight we are having bbq burgers, baby potatoes (picked this morning!) and artichoke dip. A phenomenal way to end a phenomenal day. Makes me thankful to have the honor of being a mom.
