Sunday was Mother's Day, a day that is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. When I was younger I remember whispered giggly conversations with my dad about where to take my mom out for dinner, and what to get her for a present. I always felt it was something close to a birthday. You buy a present, go out for dinner, say "Happy Mother's Day, mom!" and that's it. Just a chance to celebrate.
Now I understand. Now I have a little boy who calls me momma. He tells me he loves me. He gives me hugs and kisses. He demands I'm the one to put him to bed everynight. When I do something with my hair he says, "Your hairs nice, Momma." He hates seeing me upset. When I struggle with depression he's there to force me out of it. Somedays he's the only reason I get out of bed. Well, him and his little brother. That one doesn't say much of anything yet. But he smiles at me. Smiles so big his entire face lights up like I'm his whole world. Which I am. He doesn't use words to tell me how much he loves me and needs me, but we don't need words. Yup, I'm pretty much the most blessed person in the world. My husband is just as awesome as my boys. They really made me feel special this weekend. Saturday they took me to lunch, then we went to JoAnn Fabrics so I could get some scrapbook supplies. Then we headed to the mall where I got my hair cut. They surprised me with some of my favorite truffles from Godiva (extra dark chocolate). Sunday we got up and Mitch made coffee, the we headed to church. The boys went to their nurserys and Mitch and I sat through the service, enjoying tribute to mothers. When I went to the 3 & 4 year old nursery to get Alex, he surprised me with a card he made me. Yes, it's a plate with stickers on it. I will treasure it forever! We stopped at whole foods on the way home where I got to pick out some treats. We got home and I was forced to sit down and RELAX. Alex and I ended up having a hillarious photo-shoot with daddy going crazy on the camera. Eli eventually joined in too. I'll post pictures soon. I love my boys. It was a great weekend!
